This is a perfect treat for St. Patricks Day or anytime. I've used low fat milk and ice cream, but you can also use vegan milk and ice cream if desired. You can also use frozen yogurt if desired.
2 c vanilla ice cream
1 c - 1 1/3 c low fat milk (adjust amount desired)
2 drops green food coloring
1 - 2 hard peppermint candies
In a blender combine ingredients. Blend for 20 - 40 seconds or until well blended.
