Ever since I was younger I always waited for that one short period each year that the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake was reintroduced in the company’s restaurants. Distraught at the fact that this milkshake is short lived in their restaurants, I was hopeful that one day I would be able to enjoy this on my terms and whenever I was feeling like one.
Lucky for you, I’ve been really successful in recreating this shake and I want to share with you the exact ingredients and directions that are needed to replicate this treat. Ice cream for me is bliss, it’s difficult to contend with, hence why I have a soft spot for this milkshake. Every day can be St Patrick’s Day with this delicious treat.
I’ve recreated this copycat milkshake by using vanilla ice-cream, whipped cream and some mint extract. No longer will you have to wait until St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy the delightful mint flavors of this perfect shake! It truly is delicious and you’ll be surprised how well this copycat recipe compares to the real thing.
With mostly readily available ingredients from home, you’ll be able to get this up and ready really quickly. I’m delighted that I’m able to make these for my family and friends but secretly happy with the end result that I get to enjoy for myself. Did I mention how much I enjoy milkshakes!
Lets jump into the exact way you can make this at home for yourself.
How To Make This Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe
Having an Irish heritage these homemade shamrock shakes fall close to my heart and I love the festivities that come with St Patricks Day.
With mint chocolate ice cream being my favorite in general, this recipe ticks all of the boxes for me. No need for complex ingredients, get this recipe up and running in less than 10 minutes. Best of all, you make this recipe even on a whim without having to go to the restaurant or drive thru.
With only 315 calories in total and an effortless 10 minutes of your time, you can be indulging in this same drink that is available across the globe to Mcdonalds’ customers. When I say effortless I really mean it.
To serve 6 people, quickly add 6 scoops of vanilla icecream, some whole milk, coloring and mint extract you too can be on your way to having some happy friends and family around you. Keep in mind, 10 minutes is how long it takes if you operate at a slow pace. The final result can be achieved much quicker than that.
