See also

Each year around St. Patrick's Day McDonald's much loved Shamrock Shake comes out for a short time. If you and your family are looking for a way to have this green deliciousness at home the other 11 months of the year, you can try your hand at making this easy shake at home.

Shamrock Shake

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 10-15 drops green food coloring

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend. Serve immediately. You can garnish your shake with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles if you want.

A much simpler recipe would be to use mint chocolate chip ice cream. That way you are eliminating the green food coloring and the peppermint extract. Talk about simple!
