Shamrock Shake Recipe (All Year Round)

These are so, NOT Paleo.

Every March people swarm to McDonalds for a Shamrock Shake. I decided, why not make those delicious frothy green treats at home.

Shamrock Shake RecipeThis way I know exactly what is going into it. With a little playin around with my trusty blender this is a nice at home replacement for when you’re itching to have that Shamrock Shake.

Shamrock Shakes


  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1.5 cups whole milk
  • about 1/2 tsp (or more) pure mint extract
  • 3-5 drops green food coloring


  1. Add all the ingredients to the blender and mix away.
  2. Try a bit and see if it needs a bit more mint extract.
  3. Depending on the color, you may need a few more drops of food coloring, if you’d like it to be more green.
  4. Pour into glasses and serve.
  5. Enjoy! :)
