McDonald’s Copycat Shamrock Shake is a perfectly creamy mint shake topped with whipped cream and sprinkles to make this a superb St. Patrick’s Day shake. They’re only seasonally available at McDonald’s, but now with this easy recipe you can have one anytime. Simple and so delicious you may never have to buy one again!
One Saturday in February, two years ago, Chad is working on Munchkins playground. Uncle Happy and Pop Pop have been helping him get this together, but my man has been slaving out there for a week.
Munchkin and I ran out to do some errands and I thought I would do something nice and get Chad a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's, then I remembered that the last one he had didn't set well with him. So, I decided to make my own. I know with good ingredients I can make a shake that would put McD's to shame!!! And I was right, it is amazingly thick and creamy and oh so minty and delicious!!! Here is my version (that is much better than the original in my opinion) hope you enjoy, and have a fantastic St Patrick's Day!
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Retro Copycat McDonald's Fresh Apple Pies from back when fried apple pies were fried apple pies. Crisp flaky pie crust oozing with thick apple pie filling and tender chunks of spiced apple.
Applebee’s Spicy Queso Blanco Dip is a southwestern inspired creamy white cheese dip that pleases the palate and leaves your taste buds begging for more. A creamy cheesy dip with a little kick, it’s loaded with two cheeses, fresh herbs, and just enough heat to make your tongue tingle. This copycat recipe couldn’t taste better.
Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Copycat Recipe is a sweetened roll with a thick cinnamon-sugar filling and a cream cheese frosting that you are likely to remember long after the cinnamon roll is gone!
serves 4 large 16 ounce shakes - about 64 ounces
6 cups good vanilla ice cream (I used Blue Bell homemade vanilla)
1 1/2 cups 2% milk

15 drops green food coloring
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
green sprinkles for garnish
Put ice cream and milk in blender with half of the green food coloring and peppermint. Blend well. Add additional as desired. 15 drops of food coloring and 1 1/4 teaspoons peppermint extract was perfect for us.
Serve with fresh whipped cream on top.
Mix 1 cup heavy whipping cream, until peaks begin to form. Add 1 tablespoon powdered sugar and whip until stiff peaks form.
Garnish with sprinkles. Enjoy!
