My girlfriend, Wendy P., is a McDonalds Shamrock Shake lover. She counts down the days til she can get her first Shamrock Shake of the year! And each year she sends me a text picture of the very first shake she orders! It usually is accompanied with a message that says, "BEST DAY EVER!!!". So...I started thinking that it would be cool if I could find a Shamrock Shake recipe that she could use all year long. I mean...let's face it...NOTHING is as good as the original Shamrock Shake at McDonalds...but...you can only get it for a short time. Now...she can enjoy them all year long! Here's to you, "Wendell"!!!! Bottoms Up!
How to Make Your Own Shamrock Shake
McDonald's Shamrock Shake usually comes once a year around St. Patrick’s Day, but as the holiday passes, so does the elusive tasty beverage. Now you don’t have to be in March (or Irish) to enjoy one year round.
The cool part is you don’t have to just stick with the normal sugar-laced treat. There are several different recipes to every mood or taste.
First, if you’re just itching for a taste of the traditional recipe, Reware Vintage has a recipe for a virgin Shamrock Shake that only requires some vanilla ice cream, milk, peppermint extract and some green food dye for color. Stick it all in a blender or mixer and you’re ready to enjoy.
