My family loves McDonald's Shamrock Shakes, but we can't seem to find any locations that serve them any longer, so I decided I would try to make my own. If you search on Pinterest you will find several copy cat recipes, some with Greek yogurt, some with heavy cream, some with plain or vanilla yogurt and even some with ice cream - both adult version and kid friendly. Most ingredients include peppermint, but when I think back to the last Shamrock Shake I had, it wasn't pepperminty {yes, that is a word *wink*} it was more minty! So I made mine with mint!

Affiliate links are included in this post, which means if you make a purchase using one of the links, I will earn a small commission, but it will not cost you one penny! But it does help to keep my website running. Thank you! The following is based strictly on my honest opinion. I only recommend products and brands I love and use personally. 

Shamrock ☘️ Shake Recipe

2 scoops of ice cream per person
1/2 cup milk per 2 scoops ice cream
1/2 teaspoon Mint extract 

2 drops green food coloring 

Green decorating gel


Whipped cream


1. Add ice cream, milk, mint extract and food coloring to blender and blend well

2. Rim glass with Green decorating gel and add sprinkles to the rim

3. Pour mixture into glass, top with whipped cream and add a fun straw!

These may be green for the St. Patrick's Day holiday, but you can now make them whenever you want! The best part? You can enjoy these all year long!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! ☘️
