Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe

You love them, they are only around for a limited time and it’s hard to justify going to McDonald’s for a Shamrock Shake every night, right??  Well you are in luck! Today I am sharing my copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe!! I have seen several copy cat recipes for this delicious minty green shake but mine is a combination of several with a bit of me put in there too {chocolate!!!! }  I make this shake in my single serve blender that is a knock off of the Magic Bullet!  I got it at Wal-Mart for about $15.88 and it was originally to make Ryan his baby food.  Now it makes me smoothies and Copycat Shamrock Shakes and is still running great!

With that being said you can increase this recipe for regular blender sizes as well.  It’s not a science!

Shamrock Shake

I got a little “crazy” and I added some sugar free chocolate sauce on the top.  I made one for Michael and I put mini-chocolate chips on it!  It then reminded me of mint chocolate chip ice-cream!
