Dirty Shamrock Shakes are the adult version of Shamrock Shakes with a few bonus ingredients!
Do You Love Chocolate and Mint?
I am a mint chip lover! That’s why I wanted to share my dirty shamrock shake recipe with you all! The new gluten free Oreo cookies came out at the perfect time and allows me to add them to the shake for extra deliciousness!
I have also added some vodka and creme de menthe and Andes Mint Chocolates for added fun.
When I was younger, I remember my family going to McDonald’s for milkshakes occasionally when we went to the city. I lived in a town about 2 hours from a major city. If it was near St. Patty’s Day, I would always get a Shamrock Shake. Obviously now that I can’t eat gluten or ice cream, I had to modify it a little.
Do you have a favorite milkshake flavor?
How Did The Shamrock Shake Begin?
I didn’t know this answer so I had to look it up on good ole Google! HA! HA! It started before I was born and instantly became a hit. McDonald’s owner Hal Rosen created it to celebrate St. Patty’s Day back in 1967. The company debuted it in 1970 and it became a hit! It started out as Lemon Lime Flavored but eventually became Mint flavored. I am glad the flavor was changed. You can read all about it here.
What Makes These “Dirty” Shamrock Shakes?
The dirty part of these shakes is the added vodka and creme de menthe as well as the gluten-free Oreo cookies. It makes them adult only and the added chocolate from the Oreos is amazing! These are definitely a once-a-year treat!
This recipe makes 2 drinking glass size Dirty Shamrock Shakes and is best made in batches. You could get 4 tiny shakes out of the batch depending on how much sweet treat you want.
What Do I Need To Make These:
You will need a blender and a few ingredients:
4 Cups of Vanilla Ice Cream- I used non dairy but you can use your favorite brand.
1/4 Cup of Milk- I used Coconut but you can use cow or your favorite nut milk.
2 oz Creme De Menthe
2 oz Vodka- I used Titos but you can use your favorite brand.
5 Andes Mints
6 Gluten Free Oreo Cookie or your favorite sandwich cookie.
Whipped Cream- I used almond whipped cream.
Maraschino Cherries- I used the real ones without dye but use your favorite ones.
To make them fancy, you can melt chocolate ahead of time and dip the glasses in it and roll them in chopped up Andes mints. Put them on a baking sheet and place in the fridge to harden the chocolate.
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth 🙂 Pour into your glass and top with whipped cream and a cherry if you desire. I prefer a fat straw so it doesn’t get clogged while slurping this delicious shake!
