  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • Green food coloring (gel or paste recommended)
  • Whipped cream
  • Sprinkles
  • Maraschino cherries


  • 1
    Combine the ice cream, milk, mint extract and food coloring in a blender and pulse until combined. Add more green food coloring as desired.
  • 2
    Transfer the shakes to serving glasses, then top with whipped cream and sprinkles. Serve immediately.

  • You don’t technically have to add the green food coloring, however, it’s more fun if you do!
  • Plain mint extract will taste best in this shake, as it is more mellow than peppermint extract.
  • Transform this copycat shamrock shake into a mint chocolate chip shake by adding mini dark chocolate chips.
