This delicious Shamrock Shake is a mint ice cream shake just like the one from McDonalds! 

I love a good milkshake. It’s one of life’s best pleasures, in my expert opinion. 😉 ha. I am in love with McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes! They are the bomb dot com. Mint is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream too, so this shake sings to me whenever it’s available there!

The great thing is- you can make their shake at home easily and for a lot cheaper. It’s so easy to whip up the kiddos could do it theirselves. All you need is a few simple ingredients and you’re on your way to this fun and yummy ice cream treat. I’m thinking I’ll have to serve these for dessert on St. Patricks Day. The kids will be happy campers (and Momma too!)
