I added half the amount of milk called for--we wanted a thicker shake. The kids and I shared this between us. We thought this was very good, I'll make this again. NOTE: I used Turkey Hill vanilla bean ice cream and PURE peppermint extract.

This shake was pretty good, but a little heavy on the peppermint extract. It was a little strong. The consistency was much thinner than most milk shakes, which made it easy to drink through a straw. This recipe makes two huge servings; I split it between me, my husband, and our 8 yr old, and it was the perfect amount for us.

OK check it out......here is my version: 4-5 large scoops vanilla ice cream, 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp mint (not peppermint-i always associate peppermint with pinks and reds.......not greens!) extract and 6-7 drops of green food coloring. Blend it up real good and voila! I think its a pretty close match to McDonalds shamrock shake but hey...who am I??? lol

I loved this milkshake next time I would not ad as much mint.

I made this for the kids and tasted it. It's been a long time since I've had a Shamrock shake, but it tastes pretty similar to what I remember. I topped the kids' with a dollop of Cool Whip and some mini chocolate chips. They loved it!

I cut back on the milk to 1/2 Cup for one serving so it wouldn't be too liquidy. I added the green coloring and I thought this made a very tasty shake! Make sure you are conservative with the mint. You can always add more, but you can't take it back if you use too much. :)

Very good! Kids loved it and SO much cheaper than buying seven shamrock shakes from McDs

Yummy! I used a little less milk than called for (plus it was skim milk, not 2%), but otherwise followed the recipe. Since it was 85 here on St. Patrick's Day it hit the spot! Thanks :)
