Strawberry Thin Mint Milkshake

Mikey and I were talking about how we haven’t really seen and Girl Scout’s in our neighborhood recently, and then bam….they snuck up on us! Or should I say that I saw a Girl Scout walking through the farmer’s market and essentially ran after her and instantly bought three boxes of thin mints! Love it!

My mom taught me that thin mints are best when they are frozen, so instead of just throwing all the boxes in the freezer, we only threw two in and used the remaining box for this week’s food post. Enjoy our strawberry thin min milkshake inspired by thin mints, and be sure to support the Girl Scouts of America and go buy some delicious boxes of whatever you favorite cookies may be! This is an American tradition that we need to keep going, one cookie at a time!

*If you find the chance, you should absolutely go pick up some old fashion ice cream float glasses!

Ingredients: makes 2

1 quart strawberry ice cream
1 quart mint chocolate chip ice cream
6 thin mints
1 ½ cups half and half
½ cup whip
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar

This is the simplest recipe I think we have on Food Nasty. All you need to do is blend together all the ice cream and the half and half. Next you need to make the whip cream by whipping together the heavy cream and powdered sugar for about 2 minutes until it gets stiff. Don’t over whip. Now for the best part….crumble up the cookies and sprinkle on top. Yay a milkshake inspired by the wonderful Girl Scout cookies we all love!
