DIY Shamrock Shakes

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Make this favorite minty milkshake at home in minutes!


‘Tis the season for that famous green shake that everyone loves!

But hey, here’s a secret – did you know that it is SUPER easy to make 'em homemade?  It only takes a few ingredients, a few minutes, and maybe more than a few sprinkles (if you’re like me!) -- and your DIY Shamrock Shakes are ready to go in a flash!

I made mine with vanilla ice cream and mint extract.  But if you wanted to save a step and throw in some chocolate, you could also just make this with some mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Either way, it’s easy peasy, and lots o’ fun!

Here’s the how to!

 

Start with vanilla ice cream.

First, break out the vanilla ice cream!  Start with about 3 cups of ice cream.  (No need to be super precise with milkshakes!)

 

Put the ice cream in a blender.

Pop it in your blender.

 

Add a cup of milk and some mint extract.

Then add in a cup of milk, and about ½ teaspoon of mint extract.  (You can always add in more for an extra minty shake.)

 

Add green food coloring.

Then add in some green food coloring to get it looking as minty as it tastes. The picture shows regular food coloring, but I found that gel food colors are more intense, so you use much less to get a better color. Go with gel or paste food coloring (sometimes called icing coloring).

 

Do-it-yourself Shamrock Shakes ready to serve!

Top with some whipped cream and sprinkles, and enjoy!!!
