Saint Patrick’s Day Shake


Saint Patrick’s Day Shake

Saint Patrick’s Day is full of celebration for our house each year and we celebrate for probably a week prior to the special day.  So making our own Saint Patrick’s Day shakes is a great way to have a treat and they are easy to make as well. Saint Patrick’s Day for us is a very special day because our daughter was born on this fun holiday.  When she was little I was always worried to death that she would hate her birthday being on a holiday, but she loves it.  So each year we have to find something fun to do that embraces her birthday as well as Saint Patrick’s Day.  Most of the time it is a Green Velvet Cake (Red Velvet Cake), her choice of supper dishes and just some fun Irish traditions.

St. Patty's Day Shake Blender Image #5



¼ tsp green food coloring

3 tablespoons of sugar

¼ tsp pure peppermint extract

1.5 cups of milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 cups vanilla ice cream


Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until desired consistency. We love them all very thick so we can eat them with a spoon!!

May add or subtract milk to reach desired thickness. You can also substitute milk with your choice of almond milk, or other liquid of your choice.

Use whipped topping and sprinkles for garnish if desired. We love doing this because it makes them just a little more festive.

Pick up some great Saint Patrick’s Day straws to make them even more festive or add a Spring like touch!

Don’t forget to check out the Saint Patrick’s Day Printables, crafts, Irish Food traditions, Steak and Guinness recipes and many more! Or if you are in the mood for festive desserts, Corned Beef cabbage as well as other yummy treats can be found here as well.
