McDonald's Shamrock Shake Copycat Recipe

It’s that time of year again…the season of the Shamrock Shake. If you have never heard of a Shamrock Shake, about this time of year McDonald’s offers a minty ice cream shake. If you would like to enjoy this treat year round, fear not because She Knows has a simple and tasty recipe that I slightly adapted to make a delicious shake. If you would like to make it more authentic to McDonald’s, top with whipped cream and one maraschino cherry. Enjoy!
