Shamrock Shake Copycat Recipe

If you enjoy McDonalds' shamrock shakes every year during the month of March, then you will love this copycat recipe. It is easy to make and you can enjoy your minty shake in just a couple of minutes.


2 c. vanilla ice cream
1 c. milk
1/4 tsp. mint extract
A few drops green food coloring

Mix all ingredients together in the blender and serve immediately. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top and garnish with green sprinkles.

shamrock shake

This recipe will make one big milkshake or two smaller ones. I found some great green St. Patrick's Day mugs at the Dollar Store.

If you want to convert this recipe to be dairy free, then in the place of regular ice cream and milk, use the soy versions instead.
