Green Milkshake Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day

This past weekend, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a little early with these Lucky Charms milkshakes. These milkshakes are a little twist on Shamrock Shakes. It has been years since I have had a Shamrock Shake. While I imagine they taste pretty good, I think these homemade St. Patrick’s day milkshakes are a tad healthier. What makes these milkshakes fun is that you can customize -with your favorite green ice cream and your favorite candy!

My daughter and I were actually on a hunt for chocolate gold coins to add on top of the milkshakes. However, we came home empty handed. So, use whatever festive topping you have (like the green flags I used) to add a final touch to your milkshake.

[recipe title=”St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Charms Milkshake” servings=”2″ time=”5 mins” difficulty=”easy”]

3 1/2 Cups Favorite Green Ice Cream, packed {Mint, Mint Chocolate Chip, Lime, Pistachio}*

2/3 Cup Whole Milk

Whipped Cream

Lucky Charms

Chocolate Gold Coins, Skittles or Rainbow Fruit Roll Up are fun options too!

  1. Add ice cream and milk to a blender. Pulse until you reach your desired consistency. For a thinner milkshake, add in more milk.
  2. Pour milkshake into glass mugs.
  3. Top with whipped cream and lucky charms! Enjoy!


*If you want to have a really “green” effect to your ice cream (as the milk will water down the green color), you could use a a few drops of green food coloring. This natural food coloring set is my favorite. (mix blue and yellow coloring)

Do your kids make leprachaun traps? My kids started making them a few years ago and each year they make the traps more and more elaborate. Unfortunately, the leprachaun outwits them every year. The kids are usually rewarded with a few gold coins. Hint: You can actually get $1 gold coins at the bank! This year, I think we will also reward the kids with these milkshakes too.

St. Patrick’s Day Kid Friendly Recipe Ideas

My husband and I like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a corned beef sandwich and sometimes a Guiness. However, my kids enjoy it when I make them some green treats.

St. Patrick’s Day kid-friendly ideas include:

Rainbow Fruit Kabobs- Serve your kids a rainbow of fruit on a skewer.

Green Pancakes- Use a little green dye in your favorite pancake recipe!
