Get Lucky With Smashburger’s New Mint Oreo Shake

Smashburger_MintOreoShake

Smashburger debuts it’s newest frosty treat today — the Mint Oreo shake. Oreo cookies and mint flavors are mixed with hand-spun Häagen-Dazs for a refreshing ice cream blend. Of course, the “better burger” joint suggests pairing it with one of their “premium burgers or chicken sandwiches.” We say, it probably goes well with anything, because, well . . . ice cream.

The Mint Oreo shake will be available until the end of June. With St. Patty’s quickly approaching, the only thing missing is a dash of Irish cream and a generous helping of Jameson. Hey, throw in a leprechaun with a couple of shots, and it’s a party.

Girl Scouts of America Teams Up with Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar to Bring You Thin Mint Shakes

mint

Most of us know that Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies can only be properly enjoyed if frozen, the cool chocolate complimenting the minty flavors. Thus, the Thin Mint Shake, a Girl Scouts of America x Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar collab, was inevitable.

Starting March 1st and continuing for the rest of the month, all Lazy Dog locations will offer the Thin Mint Shake for $4.95 each, with $1 going towards local Girl Scout Councils. The shakes feature a mix of vanilla ice cream and Thin Mints, topped with whipped cream and a garnish of fresh mint.

Just the thing to go with those Thin Mint Cupcakes.

Done Right: The Bacon Milkshake

Done Right - Bacon Milk Shake - The Glut Life

So as everyone knows earlier this year Jack In The Box  launched a new ad campaign called “Marry Bacon” with a random mess of “limited edition” bacon inspired menu items. Jack’s Pièce De Résistance of these items is his Bacon Shake… Naturally I tried it. I’m not going lie it was PURE GARBAGE. Imagine the cheapest of the cheap bacon-bits ( you know, the ones with that reddish pink hue to them) blended in with freezer burnt vanilla ice cream, then finished off with some whip cream and a maraschino cherry. Yummy, right?

After tasting that nightmare, I made it my soul mission to create a REAL bacon shake.

Bacon Milk Shake Ingredients - The Glut Life

First off lets talk ingredients. This part is SUPER simple, but it’s also one of the most important. There are only six ingredients to this thing — so no excuses, man up and get the real stuff, playa’. No short cuts!

  • Thick Cut Maple Bacon (4 slices)
  • Real Maple Syrup (1/8 cup)
  • Sea Salt (pinch)
  • Brown Sugar (enough to get the job done)
  • Whole Milk (1/2 cup)
  • French Vanilla Ice Cream (lots)

Candied Bacon - The Glut Life

Lay the bacon out evenly on a baking rack. Then set the rack in a cookie sheet, but  make sure before you do that, you layer the bottom with aluminum foil. Gotta have some way to catch all that lovely bacon grease. Before you put them in the oven, sprinkle some brown sugar on the top of the bacon, then pop dem’hoes in till they extra crispy.

Diced Bacon Bits - The Glut Life

When the bacon is done cooking, let it cool for a little, then take a strip (or two) and chop it up into lil’pieces. Using a kitchen spoon, scoop up some left over bacon grease and set it aside.

Adding Bacon Grease To Milk Shake - The Glut Life

Now here’s where things get crazy…  You are going to want to dump the ice cream, milk, maple syrup, sea salt, bacon bits, and yes, the ENTIRE spoon full of bacon grease into the blender. TRUST ME. The Bacon grease is key.

Brown Sugar Rimmed Glass - The Glut Life

While that is all blending up to perfection, Take your glass and rim it with the left over brown sugar.

Then pour the shake in your sugar rimmed glasses and garnish with a stick of that candied bacon.

Now ENJOY! and oh yeah, go ahead and make an appointment with a cardiologist.
