~Fun Food Friday...Cookies and Cream Shake~

With summer fast approaching us...I decided to make a fun recipe I'd seen on Pinterest.  It was originally a "Weight Watchers" recipe, but I adapted it.  It was super fast, super easy, and super tasty!
Weight watcher's version
Blend the following in a blender...
2 cup(s) fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt
1/2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk
1/8 tsp mint extract, optional
4 item(s) cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie(s)
Serves 4

~My Version~
Blend the following in a blender...
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup milk
1/8 tsp. mint extract, it's optional (but we really liked the "zip" it added to the shake! =)
4 choc. Oreo cookies
(I doubled this recipe for our family...and added 12 cream-filled Choc. cookies cause I wanted a little more "cookie" to my "Cookies and Cream shake!"  =)
It was a hit with our family...and I hope it is with yours!
And as Always...Enjoy!
