Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe

Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe

I love the idea of a delicious minty green milkshake just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. So I thought it would be fun to share my homemade version of a classic. This copycat shamrock shake is cool and refreshing. The key to this recipe is the combination of vanilla and peppermint. Just like my red velvet cake batter milkshake, I used low fat, slow churned ice cream for this recipe, which saves a bit on calories but keeps all the amazing flavor!
