    and for a healthier version, I just found this that I’m going to try for my dairy free family

  2. Karla

    Looks delicious! I love that it’s simple to make. The only thing I need to get is the mint extract.

  3. Karla

    That’s a blender you mixed the ingredients in, right?

    • Cinthia

      Looks like my ninja blender!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes, that is a Ninja blender.

    Yum and super cute presentation! Where can I find the green striped straws? Thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks! Straws and cups from the cooking store Sur La Table but I’ve noticed most craft stores carrying them.

      • Lisa

        Thank you! 🙂

    • emiliekoch

      I saw them in the dollar bins at Target! They had a huge variety here in Delaware! Good luck! They really make the drink look so authentic!!

    Love shamrock shakes! Am I the only one that thinks there is a hint of lime flavor in them though?

    • Mrs. Howard

      Yes Jessy. There is a hint of lime. I’ve been making my own Shamrock Shakes for years and everyone always says how close they are to Mc D’s. I don’t like how they changed the way they make them (with whipped cream and the flavoring isn’t fully mixed in and the cherry on top)…Like the old saying goes, don’t fix what isn’t broken. Anyway, I mix up a sugar syrup made from Lime Kool-Aid, sugar and a bit of water and add that into the shake ingredients. Gives it that nice green coloring too! 🙂

  6. Maria

    That looks so pretty! I love making a version of the shamrock shake with fresh mint and shaved chocolate.

    No one’s up in arms about this taking money out of McDonald’s pockets? 😉

    • Katie

      I’m sure not and I work there!

      Sorry about that- my 17 month old was playing with my phone. Didn’t expect him to actually hit post!

      • Wanda

        TOO FUNNY:))

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        I think it’s code for ‘make me this mom’ lol 🙂

        • Audra

          I wish I could. But he is allergic to dairy.

    • lynn

      As a mom that made me laugh

  9. Deb

    I have made a couple of your recipes and loved them! My husband raved about your sweet and sour chicken -he told me to make sure I saved that recipe!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s so nice Deb. Thanks!

    I am looking forward to trying this. I did try a paleo version of shamrock shake which used coconut milk, avocados and ice instead of ice cream. It called for a tablespoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of mint extract…needless to say the teaspoon of mint was WAAAAAY too much and it tasted like a scope milkshake lol. I am interested to try this one with just the half teaspoon. My point is, although a half teaspoon doesn’t sound like much, do NOT add any more!!! I am sure this one will taste much better anyway…I mean, ice cream makes everything better, right?! Thanks for sharing!

    • Christina

      I agree! I only used the 1/2 tsp. and it was horrible!!! I had to add more frozen yogurt and milk to even it out. WHOA it was strong.

  11. Heather C.

    Mint Toriani syrup works well too!!

  12. Julie

    I just made these and they taste just like a shamrock shake. Thanks Lina for posting this recipe. Me and my husband was just talking the other day about getting a shamrock shake from mcdonalds and now I can make them a home for a lot less. thanks again

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh yay! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  13. Tracey

    I just made them too and my two kids are lovin them…. Thanks!

  14. Shannon

    Where has Lina been? Is she still posting with Hip2Save? I hope so because I really enjoyed her recipes!

    That looks good! My son has been craving a Shamrock shake! Thanks!
