Homemade Shamrock Shake

I don’t care for McDonald’s…with one exception. Every year, when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, I get very excited to pull through the McDonald’s drive-thru and order myself a shamrock shake. This year, I decided to attempt this minty frozen treat all on my own for a little homemade St. Patty’s Day celebration (with an adult kick).

Homemade Shamrock Shake
1 C vanilla bean ice cream, softened
1/4 C 2% milk
1 oz Creme de Menthe

Add ice cream and milk to blender. Blend until smooth. Add Creme de Menthe and blend. If desired, top with whipped cream and a cherry.

Here are some great Irish-inspired recipes from HAP days past:
Irish Car Bomb Ice Cream
Chocolate Guinness Cake with Bailey’s Cream Cheese Frosting
Guinness Float
Slow Cooker Corned Beef Sandwiches
Irish Pasties

Slainte!
