I meant to make this yesterday but I did not even have the patience. I've never used the blender (I suck) so I was pleasantly surprised to find out it's super-easy and all goes into the dishwasher. That makes me more likely to use it again on a regular basis. The milkshake was yummy and simple. I used 2% milk instead of whole milk, low-fat slow-churned ice cream, and left out the rum. I added a little too much mint extract, oops! It was a little strong. But otherwise this was yummy and I'd make it again on any day, not just for St. Patrick's Day!

1 cup whole milk
1 pint green mint chocolate chip ice cream
1 teaspoon pure mint extract
3 tablespoons dark rum
Mint sprigs, for garnish
Put the milk, ice cream, mint extract and rum into a blender. Blend on high until smooth, about 15 seconds. Pour into 2 chilled glasses and garnish with a sprig of mint.
