Favorite St. Patrick's Day Shake
Our family loves this minty and creamy McDonald’s creation. Unfortunately, we are only able to get them around the end of February to March every year.
I scoured the internet trying to find the perfect copycat recipe. While all were close, my boys and I agree, they all required a bit of tweaking.
This recipe is the one that we think comes the closest. We top ours with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry—but they really aren’t needed. They sure make it look pretty, though!
