Fudge Mint Milkshake

My middle son’s favorite treat is a milkshake.  These fudge mint milkshakes have become one of his new favorites.  They are so easy to make too.  They are a great way to use up all of those Thin Mint cookies that you purchased from the Girl Scouts this year.  Or if it isn’t Girl Scout cookie season, just pick up some Keebler Grasshopper cookies during your next trip to the grocery store. Either way, they make a great milkshake!

I am starting a new series of posts that are going to be our summertime favorites.  You can see some of our favorites that I have posted in the past if you scroll down on the sidebar to the right ===>.  I am going to start off today sharing what is probably my favorite smoothie – the Strawberry Banana Coconut Smoothie.  It is so easy to make and tastes delicious!  Of course, if you don’t like one of the fruits, just substitute for another favorite of yours.  It’s very versatile!
