We love Shamrock Shakes so much and we think they are THE dessert of the fast food places. Of course it’s only available for a limited time so now we can make it ALL the time! This copycat recipe with the added oreos gets all the flavor of the seasonal fun shake with just a handful of ingredients instead of that long list you can’t pronounce at the drive-thru.
Can you turn this into an adult drink?
You sure can! This is the perfect drink To serve at your St. Patrick’s party or get together. Your friends will love you for it! If you want to make this an adult drink add 1/2 cup Baileys and 3 Tbsps Creme de Menthe Green Liqeur.
Do you have to add in the mint extract?
You don’t, actually. If you don’t care for the taste of mint, don’t add it. It’s just as simple as that. You’re still going to have the flavor of ice cream and Oreos to take you into tastebud heaven. Remember to use MINT extract and not peppermint or it will taste like candy cane. There is a big difference!
Can you use other flavors of ice cream?
Absolutely. While we think that you get the best flavor when you use vanilla, you can really use whatever flavor you want to. Chocolate is a pretty safe and popular choice but if you’re not wanting to add in the peppermint extract, you could skip that step and just do mint ice cream as well.
Can you freeze leftover Oreo Shake?
You can, but here’s the deal. Anytime you freeze leftover shake, you’re going to run the risk of it having freezer burn on it. If at all possible, dig deep and finish your Oreo Shamrock Shake when you make it fresh. You’ll notice a big flavor difference from fresh to frozen in this recipe if not.
Now is the time to get ready for the milkshake season! With winter almost over, that means that warmer weather is on the horizon and the only thing to quench those thirsts and cravings is to make your very own Oreo Shamrock Shake!
