As you know, the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is only available for a limited time which makes it very special for some customers and fans. My kids usually ask for it a few times a year. So, after some testing, here’s a recipe that is pretty close to the original design.

I hope you enjoy it!! Make sure you have some sprinkles and whipped cream to give it that St. Patty’s feel!!
