Make Your Own Shamrock Shake

I remember how excited I used to get each year waiting for St. Patrick’s Day to come around again so that I could get my hands on one of the famous McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes. They were the perfect combination of cooling peppermint and vanilla ice cream. Now that I am older, I still get those cravings for the deliciousness of yesterday. However, I often want to try to make my own version of the classic favorites. This time I’ve decided to use the recipe that I posted a few months ago for mint chocolate ice cream and turn it into my own version of this festive St. Patrick’s Day necessity. Everyone at Sulpice Chocolat really enjoys it!



  • 2 cups mint ice cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup milk, less for thicker milkshakes
  • Sulpice™ Chocolat Menthe bar, chopped (optional)
  • Green food coloring (optional)


Using a blender, blend all ingredients together until smooth. Sprinkle with a few bits of chopped chocolate bar. Enjoy!
