Every winter, people eagerly await the return of the Shamrock Shake at a certain fast-food restaurant....and then get sad when it goes away.
I'm not sure what the big deal is. Yes, it is delicious, creamy and minty, but making a copycat version is just about one of the easiest recipes that you can make. All you need is a blender and a few ingredients that you probably have at home.
For a truly "authentic" Shamrock Shake recipe, just make it as directed. If you want to have some fun with it, you can make it the way that my son likes it - by also throwing in some semisweet chocolate chips!
To make it, you will need:
- 1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1/2 cup Half and Half
- 5 drops Mint Extract
- 4 drops Green Food Coloring
- Whipped cream & maraschino cherries (optional)
Making it is easy!:
