Easy Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day

Since my husband is half Irish, we love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! Oh and of course enjoying green treats like a Shamrock Shake and wearing lots of green. It’s the perfect time to celebrate by making rainbow themed desserts and enjoying delicious green food and drinks.

I had fun making a homemade, healthier, copycat version of McDonald’s famous Shamrock Shake. People really go crazy over that green goodness! This delicious dessert recipe is very easy to make, and tastes just like a McDonald’s shake!

My kids love the added rainbow candy and clouds on top! Now we just need some gold… the real kind would be fantastic:-)

  1. The rainbow on top is absolutely adorable! I’ve been trying to think what would be a cute tradition for the kiddos and I think these would be perfect for after our green dinner 🙂

  2. You might want to correct the directions for the milkshake – to, “Add 5 drops food color” instead of drops of mint extract.

    Looks good. I’ll have to try it next St. Patty’s Day.

  3. This is so cute! We are definitely making one for St. Patrick’s day this year. Thanks!
