This is the time of year that the kids and I scope out the McDonald’s menu to see if the Shamrock Shake has made its return. If we are lucky enough to see the Mint Green shake, it’s a happy day. It’s one of life’s little pleasures. When it’s still too early, we have our own version. This Homemade McDonald’s Copycat Shamrock Shake Recipe tastes very similar to McDonald’s original shake. Come on in and I’ll share this easy recipe with you…

The McDonald’s Shamrock Shake has been around ever since I can remember. I have memories of being in the back of our red station wagon and seeing the mint green shake on the McDonald’s intercom display.

I’m so glad that it has lasted through so many generations. My kids absolutely love the shake.  After Christmas peppermint flavored everything has passed, they start asking about the Shamrock Shake at McDonald’s. Luckily I have a homemade version to tide them over.
