Best Ever Copycat McDonald's Shamrock Shake
Our Shamrock Shake recipe has been pulled out and dusted off. Every time I go by McDonald's I want to stop to get one for Chad, well at least for 1/2 a second. Then I remember....
One Saturday in February 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 made him ill. 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 hope you enjoy, and have a fantastic St Patrick's Day!
