1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve!
I love Mcdonald’s in March. Their fish fillet sandwiches go on sale because of Lent and they have Shamrock shakes out. Here is a copy cat recipe of their Shamrock shakes. Next time, I’d use only 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract instead of half. The 1/2 teaspoon made the peppermint flavor seem a bit too strong. I also used a low fat ice cream and 1 % milk to make these. For garnish use a can of whipped cream and some shamrock sprinkles.
