Today I am sharing my CopyCat Shamrock Milkshake recipe with all of you. It’s that time of year again when the Shamrock Milkshake hits the menu line up at McDonald’s. St Patrick’s Day mint milkshakes are always one of my favorite items to score at McD’s this time of year. I can end up spending a small fortune taking the whole family to enjoy a Shamrock milkshake. This year the kiddos spotted the Shamrock shake was on the menu again when we had a fast food night for dinner this past weekend. I decided that we would make our own CopyCat Shamrock Milkshake at home and save a bit of cash. I knew making them at home could not be too difficult and it wasn’t. The kids and hubby thought this Shamrock Milkshake recipe really was a close one to the McDonald’s shake they have grown to love over the past few years.
CopyCat Shamrock Milkshake
Just grab a few ingredients from the grocery and whip up some Shamrock Shakes at home! I did find my Mint Extract at Remke (could not locate it at Kroger) so you may need to hunt for it or I think peppermint would work too!
1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 cup Half and Half
5 drops Mint Extract
4 drops Green Food Coloring
Whipped cream (optional)
Combine ice cream, half and half, mint extract and food coloring in a blender and puree for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Optionally top with whipped cream.
