lc/sf shamrock shake?

Someone posted on Facebook about having a shamrock shake today so now of course I want one! Surely one of the gurus here has made a lc/sf version. I THINK I did in the past but can't for the life of me remember what I did.

Couldn't you just make a vanilla whey protein shake and add some peppermint extract or Da Vinci/Torani syrup and green food coloring? Here is a chocolate mint recipe from my site and you could omit the cocoa mix and save 4 carbs:

CHOCOLATE MINT PROTEIN SHAKE
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons peppermint Torani syrup
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 packet diet hot cocoa mix *
2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder *
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
8-10 ice cubes

Put everything except the xanthan gum and ice cubes in a blender; blend briefly on low speed. Turn the blender to HIGH and gradually add the xanthan gum and then the ice cubes, one at a time. Blend until smooth and thick.

Makes 1 serving

* I use Kroger brand Fat Free Hot Cocoa Mix which is sweetened with Splenda and only has 4 carbs per serving. I use Body Fortress whey protein.

With 1 scoop whey protein:
Per Serving: 270 Calories; 13g Fat; 29g Protein; 9g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 7g Net Carbs

With 2 scoops whey protein:
Per Serving: 410 Calories; 15g Fat; 55g Protein; 12g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 10g Net Carbs

Years ago I made milkshakes in the ice cream maker. 2 cups low carb milk, 1 cup whipping cream and whatever flavors you wanted to add. Mine were usually lemon or I used chocolate low carb milk.

Wanna guess what I'm making this weekend!

this is a wonderful basic recipe with a million variations. I love making it with Hood Calorie Countdown 2% or 2% chocolate milk instead of the cream, water, and protein powder as well. and you can use peppermint extract instead of the syrup if you want, sweetening with liquid splenda. personally I don't use peppermint often enough to have the syrup bottle around--I think it took me nearly 10 years to use it up last time! LOL

I do better getting the ice all incorporated before adding the xanthan. it thickens it SO MUCH it's hard for the blender to keep going long enough to get all the ice pulverized as fine as I like.

I got two bottles of Torani peppermint syrup off the clearance rack at World Market several years ago and I'm still working on the last bottle. I love peppermint but there's only so many ways to use it. It's very good in panna cotta, by the way. This is the recipe that I used:

Nancy's Mint Panna Cotta

Nancy used Da Vinci Crème de Menthe flavor syrup because they don't make (or didn't at the time) a plain peppermint syrup. I used Torani when I made it.

Creme de Menthe is my favorite. I have used 2 bottles in a year. I think it is more of a "shamrock" flavor.

How about Carb Smart vanilla ice cream, peppermint extract, almond milk, a few ice cubes and some green food coloring? You could even throw in a spoonful of HWC. If it's not sweet enough, maybe a T or 2 of SF vanilla syrup, or sweetener of choice. Top with real whipped cream and a drizzle of SF chocolate syrup if desired.

I can not wait to try this shake. These used to be my "have to", when I would see them advertised, before low-carb of course. I am hoping that it tastes like I remember. As soon as I can get the items I need I will make this.
