Amazing Shamrock Shake. St Patrick’s Day will soon be here; are you ready? This shake is even better than McDonalds. Yes they have the Shamrock Shake and you can have one too. McDonalds Shamrock Shake is seasonal, but you can have this Amazing Shamrock Shake any time of year. You will love the flavor of the real ice cream and the amazing flavor of mint together. 

One of the favorite parts of this shake is when you let the kids put their own cream on top.

  • NO!!! One night my son made a batch and we threw it out because the peppermint just wasn’t right.
