Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day? When it comes to the luck-filled holiday, I can’t help but serve thematic desserts: and yes, that means a lot of green-colored treats. My Milk Chocolate Chip Milkshake is a hit with my kids every year.

What is a Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake?

This homemade milkshake is made up of very few ingredients but still packed with tons of flavor! In my recipe you’ll find vanilla ice cream, peppermint extract, milk, and miniature chocolate chips. Yes, that’s all it takes to whip-up this delicious treat. My kids also like to call it a “Cookie Milkshake” because it reminds them of chocolate chip cookies… in milkshake form!

Is This a Copycat Shamrock Shake?

Not quite… but it’s very close! The famous Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s doesn’t have the delicious chocolate chip addition like ours does. That’s what makes ours so special!

I Love Mint Chocolate, Will I Like This Milkshake?

Absolutely! This is pretty much a Mint Chocolate Milkshake! With ingredients like chocolate chips and peppermint extract, a mint chocolate lover like yourself will surely appreciate it.
