Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up and it wouldn’t actually be the holiday if you didn’t enjoy a shamrock shake!  You can make your own shamrock shake without having to leave your room, except when you go to Walmart to get the ingredients (even the peppermint extract).  And don’t worry, if you don’t have a blender, you can still make it! Follow these simple steps to make your own DIY shamrock shake:



Whipped Cream

Cherries (for on top, of course!)

Green Food Coloring

Peppermint extract


Vanilla Ice Cream



For one Shamrock Shake:

  1. Put 3 cups of vanilla ice cream into a blender
  2. Put 1 ¾ cups milk into blender
  3. Put ½ tsp peppermint extract into blender
  4. Put green food coloring in blender (as much as you’d like, but a couple drops will do)
  5. Blend it all together
  6. Add whipped cream and a cherry on top!



Don’t worry!! If you don’t have a blender, you can let your ice cream sit out until it becomes soft, and mix all of the ingredients together by hand.  It’s just as yummy!
