Sam here! I made my own Shamrock Shake instead of waiting in the drive-thru — the McDonald's ice cream machine is broken half the time anyway!

  • Searching "Shamrock Shakes at home" via Google, YouTube or TikTok returns countless similar recipes.

Details: 3 large scoops vanilla ice cream (about 1/4 cup each)

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 6 drops green food coloring
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • 1 maraschino cherry, for topping

The bottom line: Yum!
