Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    You don’t technically have to add the green food coloring, however, it’s more fun if you do!
  • tip 2
    Plain mint extract will taste best in this shake, as it is more mellow than peppermint extract.
  • tip 3
    Transform this copycat shamrock shake into a mint chocolate chip shake by adding mini dark chocolate chips.
