Who Wants a Shamrock Shake?

I do! I do! But I’m too lazy to drive to McDonald’s… Good thing I can make this copycat recipe!

If you have a blender you can make this popular shake at home anytime of year. If you’re more of a visual learner, we even created a how-to video.


  • -3 C. vanilla ice cream
  • -1 1/4 C. milk, 2% or whole
  • -1/4 tsp. mint extract
  • -4 drops green food coloring
  • -Whipped cream, to top with
  • -Green sugar sprinkles, to top with
  •  -cherry


  1. 1. You will need to use your blender for this recipe. Start with the ice cream, scooping it into the blender.
  2. 2. Then pour the milk on top.
  3. 3. Add the mint extract and food coloring, then blend so that the food coloring and mint is evenly absorbed.
  4. 4. Taste the mixture. If you’d like to add more mint or color, do so now.
  5. 5. Blend again until smooth.
  6. 6. Pour into a heavy shake glass and top with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry.

If mint isn’t your favorite flavor, try these chocolate, banana or strawberry kiwi milkshakes.
