It’s march and that means it’s some people’s favorite time of the month! This is largely because of McDonald’s “Shamrock Shake”. This green shake is a staple to most in march and i have some friends that even count down the days until McDonald’s starts serving this minty shake! Now I know that it may be hard for some of you to believe, but there is actually a way to get that shake all year round! you heard me right! All it takes is a little elbow grease and a lot less money and you can have this fantastic shake all year long! Check out the very end of the post for an adult version of this awesome dessert!
All you will need are a few household ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen:
- One tub of vanilla ice cream
- One container of mint syrup (Find Here)
- 1 cup of milk
- A container of whipped topping of your choice
- Cherries and green sprinkles (optional)
You of course will need a blender to make this creation and the rest is quite simple.
First – First off you will need to take 2 or 3 scoops (depending on how you like your shakes) and add it to the blender
Second – Add the milk! You can use more or less depending on how you like your shakes! Some people like them thick and creamy and others like theres less thick so they can use a straw! Check out our awesome St. Patrick’s Day straws we have for a fun holiday addition!
Third – Add some of that mint syrup! Again, as with the rest of the recipe, you can add as much or as little as you want! It all depends on how much you love that minty flavor! So go wild and create your own St. Patty’s Shake!
**The whipped cream and cherries is optional, but what’s a milkshake without those two things? Around the holiday season you can get sprinkles in cute 4 leaf clover shapes and these make great additions to the milkshake! Add some fun green sugar crystals, drizzle with more syrup, or simply let it be what it is, a really great dessert!
If you are feeling risky try adding a touch or two of Bailey’s irish cream to the mix! this makes for a great adult drink when drank responsibly. We even have some great St. Patrick’s day cups that will make a great holder for your spiked milkshake!
