Lucky you! Our homemade version of the fast-food Shamrock Shake isn’t just spiked with Lucky Charms® marshmallows (though how cute of a topper is that?!), it’s also punch-drunk peppered with Bailey’s® Irish Cream.

Prefer to skip the booze? Swap out the Bailey’s® for some milk and you’ll have a yummy peppermint-kissed shamrock shake so rich and creamy it rivals the original. See Shamrock Shake recipe and other St. Patrick’s Day inspired desserts here!

Save that pot o’ gold for a rainy day with Lucky Charms® and General Mills® coupons!

Here’s how to get this delicious milkshake in your glass, fast:

Shamrock Shake Recipe

Serves 2


  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons green sprinkles
  • 2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream (or milk)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint leaves (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons green food coloring
  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup Lucky Charms® marshmallows


  1. Give into your inner kid and pick out all the Lucky Charms® marshmallows. The cereal can be saved for later, we just want the lucky little bits for the top of our shakes.
  2. Rim two glasses with honey, dip in green sprinkles. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, puree ice cream, Bailey’s® Irish Cream, mint leaves, peppermint extract, and green food coloring. Pour into a glass.
  4. Top with whipped topping. Here’s a chef’s secret: That sprayable whipping cream doesn’t keep its shape and will begin to melt and weep within seconds. For a beautiful swirl on top — that stays — pipe whipped topping through an icing bag instead!
  5. Garnish with Lucky Charms®.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
