Did this as a group cooking activity with some middle schoolers and they all loved it! I did only put 1 cup of milk in it because it seemed thin when I made it at home before. Other than that, it turned out really well!

This recipe turned out good. Like the previous commenters mentioned, I would use a little less than the recommended amount of milk (if using skim). I also added a tad more mint extract. Using the 1/8 spoon wasn't enough so I added about 1/16 more. Otherwise I would follow the same amount of ice cream recommended...that suffices!! Thanks alot. 🍀 Happy nearly St. Patty's Day!

I am not really a fan of Mc D's shakes as a general rule, but I do enjoy a shamrock shake now and again. To the people complaining about the thickness, McDonald's shakes are fairly runny to begin with, at least when compared to a handmade shake from a diner. To fix this, simply use a higher fat content milk. I used homo. You could also use half-and-half. Be sure to use a GOOD QUALITY ice cream and up the quantity a bit. Lastly, don't over blend it. It is great!

People ard saying both super good and terrible. I myself made this for my wife and I, who LOVES these McDonalds shamrock shakes. First off I used the mint extract (not the peppermint). Same amount of ice cream as called for and 2% milk, it was more runny then expected so I added 2 cups more of the ice cream along with 1\4 tsp. of more mint extract. My peeps that didnt like it, oh well. But I do have to say when adding the cool whip or dream whip with Manchino cherry, Perfect to the taste of a real shamro

It taste pretty close to the real thing but it could have been the ice cream I used but u have to be careful on the mint
