About the Recipe

The beauty of this homemade version is that it captures the creamy, minty essence of the original with ingredients you likely already have or can easily grab from your local grocery store. Not only is it quick to make, but preparing it at home allows you to customize the recipe to your taste, making your Shamrock Shake experience truly your own.


  • Vanilla Ice Cream: about 2 cups or 4 generous scoops.

  • Milk: 1/2 cup to get that perfect shake consistency.

  • Mint Extract: A crucial flavor component; start with 1/4 teaspoon or adjust according to taste.

  • Vanilla Extract: A half-teaspoon to enhance the shake's sweet flavor.

  • Green Food Coloring (Optional): For that signature Shamrock hue, 3-4 drops should do the trick.

  • Optional Toppings: Whipped cream and green sprinkles for that extra festive touch.


  1. In your blender, combine the vanilla ice cream, milk, mint extract, vanilla extract, and green food coloring (if using). Blend on medium speed until the mixture is smooth.

  2. Pour your homemade Shamrock Shake into cups.

  3. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle some green sprinkles on top for a festive flair.

  4. Enjoy your delicious creation!
