If the first week of March always finds you craving a minty, bright green Shamrock shake from McDonalds -- but your health goals or wallet have you steering clear of the drive through -- make your own shake at home with this easy recipe from Real Simple. The magazine's chefs put together a how-to that uses just six ingredients (vanilla ice cream, milk, heavy cream, mint leaves, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract) and one technique: Blend. The end result is a shake that's more natural, cheaper, and quicker than the classic takeout version, but just as festive and delicious.
