A Fun St. Patrick's Day Recipe: Shamrock Shakes

> Shamrock Shake Ingredients:

What you will need to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a yummy snack?

  • 3 scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 4-6 drops green food coloring
  • Whipped cream, for topping

> How to Make Your Shake:

This takes 5 minutes max. per shake.

  1. Scoop out the mint chocolate chip ice cream into a bowl (the bigger the better).
  2. Let it sit for a minute to soften up, but don’t let it melt too much. 
  3. Stir the ice cream around in the bowl. 
  4. Then, mix in the heavy cream, peppermint extract & food coloring
  5. Pour the mixture into a cup & top with whipped cream

You can either mix with a spoon by hand or use a blender. But, we have found the blender sometimes makes the shake a little watery. 

> Toppings for Your St. Patrick’s Treat:

Top your yummy shake with treats like:

  • maraschino cherries
  • coconut flakes
  • sprinkles (green if you have them)
  • chocolate chips 
  • nuts

You can also get inspiration from your kiddos and have them help decorate their own! Any fun green things you can come up with to add a little pizzazz. 

> How to Decorate 

If you are having a St. Patrick’s Day party with your family or friends, decorate the shakes with fun trinkets & toys. 

Decorate with green plastic rings, fun straws, and serve up in a fancy wine or martini glass. You can find all these things at the Dollar Tree! 


We hope your family enjoys St. Patrick’s Day together, with a St. Paddy’s Day shake…or maybe two.
