Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe


If you are like me, you not so patiently wait for the Shamrock shake every year. Now you don't have to! This copycat shamrock shake tastes just like the "real" thing and is so much more budget friendly!

 

One of my favorite parts about spring (well besides warm weather and the “new” of everything is the fact that I can get myself a Shamrock Shake. What I really don’t like is the cost of them though. These are my favorite milkshake flavor so if I were to allow myself, I could really go overboard in a hurry so instead of spending a boatload (not to mention the fact of not knowing what’s really in that shake), I make them at home! This Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe is sweet and smooth…just like the real thing! The only thing you’ll notice is the cost! This one is so much cheaper to make that I could have one everyday during the spring and still spend less money!

You will need: 

  • ¼ tsp green food coloring
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • ¼ tsp pure peppermint extract
  • 1.5 cups of milk or substitute (you can see that I actually use Lactaid, but regular milk will work just as well)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream

 

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients together in your blender and blend until you find the consistency that you want. You can add more milk or cut back on it if you need to to get just the right consistency. You’re looking for smooth and creamy, but it really is a personal preference. Make sure you taste test it before serving so you can tell if it’s minty enough for you. If not, just add a bit more peppermint extract. Be careful though because you could very easily overdo it since it tends to be a very strong extract.
