My son and I enjoyed this shake SO much. I made it with the vanilla ice cream and used orange juice as the liquid in the recipe. After making the o.j.-mint mixture, I strained out the mint leaves before proceeding with the recipe as I wasn't sure the blender would cut them up finely enough. I had some perfectly ripe peaches and mixed everything together to make a wonderfully flavorful and frothy treat. The mint added a fresh, but mild flavor. This is a really delicious shake and a good way to get your day's worth of fruit!
