Recipe Card


  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, (optional)
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chilled milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract, (not peppermint, as mint is a combination of spearmint and peppermint)
  • 12 drops green food coloring
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Green sugar sprinkles, for garnish
  • 2 maraschino cherries, for garnish


  • Step 1

    Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate syrup around the interior of a tall glass (optional). Add ice cream, milk, vanilla extract, mint extract, and food coloring to a blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer to the chocolate-coated glass. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. Serve immediately.
