Homemade “shamrock” shakes (GF)

Last week, I took the boys to Mcdonald’s so they could try the Shamrock shake. Both of them loved it! This week I decided to make my own version. Ice cream was on sale for a pint. Can’t beat a dollar for a pint!

It’s so simple to make. Just put the ingredients in the blender and blend away.

While they were enjoying their treat, I enjoyed my St. Patty’s smoothie. The recipe is to come later.

Homemade “shamrock” shake

Stars of the recipe:

  •  1 pint of vanilla ice cream
  • 3-4 drops of green food coloring
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1/2 c. Milk (more or less depending on preference)


  1. Place all ingredients in the blender.
  2. Blend away.
  3. Enjoy!

The Imaginative One says it would be better with whipped cream.

Oh, this recipe makes 2 shakes or one big one.
