Copycat Shamrock Shake

St. Patrick’s Day is in just a couple of days, so today’s recipe is for a seasonal fast food favourite that you can make at home. That’s right, McDonald’s Shamrock Shake in your own kitchen! This super-yummy shake is a much-anticipated start to spring for many people, and now you can make it too! Don’t forget to come back to this recipe in the heat of summer for a nice cooling treat to beat the heat. These shakes are ultra creamy, and so full of minty vanilla flavour. 


1 serving

  • 1 cups vanilla ice cream (1.5 quart container)
  • 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1/8 tsp pure mint extract (you want mint – not peppermint)
  • Green food coloring (approximately 10-15 drops of liquid food coloring)
  • Whipped cream – for serving
  • Green sanding or sparkling sugar – for serving
  • Maraschino cherries – for serving


  1. Add ice cream, milk, mint extract and food coloring to large blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. Pour into serving glasses.
  3. Top with whipped cream, green sugar and a cherry, if desired.
