DIY Shamrock Shake

created at: 03/16/2012

If green beer isn't your thing, then maybe green milkshakes are! Every March, McDonald's rolls out the elusive Shamrock Shake. They haven't always been available at every restaurant, so here's a DIY version that might even be better. Read on for the recipe...

The Naptime Chef is a big fan of the leprechaun-like dessert. She experimented with recipes until she struck just the right balance of thickness and sippability. 

McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Copycat Recipe

3 cups good quality vanilla ice cream
1 3/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Green food coloring, if desired

Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve! Makes 1 giant shake, or 2 generously sized shakes. (Personally, I love it when a milkshake comes with an extra milkshake on the side.)
