How to Make a Shamrock Shake

How to Make a Shamrock Shake

The Shamrock Shakes are coming back to McDonalds along with an OREO Smamrock Shake!


But perhaps we feel like we’re feeling a little adventurous.  Perhaps we feel like we can impress our friends and family by making our OWN shamrock shakes? Perhaps we’re about to make a TOTAL MESS in our kitchen??


Let’s do it!



1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup whole milk
10 drops green food coloring
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
Whipped cream (optional)
1 maraschino cherry

In a blender, combine the vanilla ice cream, milk, green food coloring, and peppermint extract, and process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour the shake into a glass and top with the whipped cream and maraschino cherry.


Feel free to add any type of alcohol if you’re feeling daring.  Other than that, you should be good!
