Shamrock Shakes


For a few weeks each March, McDonald's offers its popular Shamrock Shake. But they're only around for a limited time. Try making your own green shakes at home any time of year.


  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream (can substitute frozen yogurt)
  • 1 cup whole milk (can substitute a low-fat milk)
  • ¼ tsp. peppermint extract
  • 10 drops green food coloring (consider natural food coloring as an alternative)
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Blender
  • Serving glasses
  • Straws


Give everything a whirl in the blender and add drops of green food coloring until you reach the desired green hue. Pour into glasses and serve with a straw.
