Here is a delicious recipe for a Homemade Shamrock Shake that tastes just like the real one! It will cost you a fraction of the price. You can even make this into a non-dairy version.
My kids love Shamrock Shakes at McDonalds, but I do not like paying for them. So, I thought I would give a copycat recipe a try and boy am I glad I did. They taste amazing! Not only does it save money, it also saves me time. That is a win for sure! Plus, these milk shakes are not always available so being able to make my own is a special treat I can surprise them with through the year.
Be sure to give this Homemade Shamrock Shake recipe a try, you will not be disappointed! The great thing about making this recipe at home is that you control the ingredients that you use. You can easily make this gluten free or dairy free when you do. My son has a dairy allergy and Melissa is gluten free so being able to make your own is allergy friendly.
I hope you enjoy this copycat version. This beverage recipe is easy to make and is so refreshing on a hot summer day. It is AMAZING and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
