I doubled this recipe. I used Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean ice cream I cut back on the milk by half (for a thicker shake) and added a touch more mint flavoring. The kids and I drank every bit of this. Read More

The flavour was great but we had to add extra ice cream because it was very runny. Read More

This was great! I didn't measure the milk just kept adding until it was the consistancy that I wanted. Great flavor and very pretty to look at. The girls loved this for a treat today after lunch. I will be making these again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Made this twice this weekend! Some recipes say not to use peppermint extract but that was all I had on hand and it worked just fine. As others stated I added less milk...probably 1 cup of milk per 2 cups of ice cream. I will never again buy a Shamrock shake from McDonald's! Last year when I got one it tasted a bit odd and I think it was the dye they used. And...for about 6 I was able to make about 10 shakes for my family. Read More

This was fantastic! I made it exactly like the recipe with Haagen-Daz vanilla and it was a big hit with the whole family! We will be making these at home from now on!! Read More

Wow! I loved this recipe! I didn't have any mint extract so I put in a bunch of after eight chocolates and blended them along with it and it gave it a nice minty taste. I also added a bit more ice cream to make it thicker. Thanks so much for the recipe! I will definitely make it again!! Read More

THANK YOU! Our local fast-food chain's shake machine was "down" and I really needed my annual Shamrock Shake fix FAST! This reminded me that yes I am capable of making my own shakes and I can also control what goes into them too! I didn't measure anything but I used approximately equal amounts of milk and ice cream a splash of mint extract a couple drops of green food coloring and it came out perfectly! I will be making this every St. Patrick's Day and any other time the mood strikes me! Read More

I just made a ton of this stuff. Everyone loved it. I would use less milk though. Maybe start off with one cup (which was perfect for us) and add more if you need to. Read More
