  3. If desired, top each glass with dairy-free whipped cream and even a Maraschino cherry

Tips for making the perfect Shamrock Shake

  • Use high-quality ingredients for the best flavor.

  • If you prefer a thicker shake, add more ice cream to the blender.

  • For a stronger mint flavor, add more peppermint extract.

  • Add more spinach for the desired color

  • If you don't have a blender, you can use a handheld immersion blender or a food processor to blend the ingredients together.

  • If you want to make a larger batch of Shamrock Shake, simply double or triple the recipe.
