Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe
We’d like to welcome RecipeLion.com as a special guest with this amazing Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe. Thank you for this scrumptious recipe!
For nearly 50 years, McDonald’s has been serving up its signature green shake from mid-February to late-March to help us all celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Known for its pretty green shade and minty taste, this shake is hard to pass by during the late winter and early spring months.
McDonald’s makes this classic treat with a mix of vanilla soft serve ice cream, a mint syrup, and whipped topping. Plus, the iconic cherry on top! Now, you don’t have to visit the local McDonalds or wait for the seasonal menu item to be served.
We’ve got a Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe that anyone can enjoy. Plus, this treat is made with real ice cream, peppermint extract, and a hint of food coloring. So, it’s just a little bit healthier for you than the original recipe.
We made this recipe on Facebook Live last year and our readers cannot get enough of it. That’s why RecipeLion.com is so thrilled to share our recipe with the Who Needs A Cape? readers.

Making this minty shake is as simple as pie! All you need to do is combine the ingredients in your blender to blend them. You might need to help your blender out a bit if the ice cream is extra frozen, so have a spatula handy.
For a smoother shake, blend this recipe for a little bit longer!
If you’re not a big fan of strong mint flavoring, try adding the extract bit by bit until you achieve a taste you enjoy.
Want a boozy version? This tastes great with Baileys Irish Cream!
