This healthier version of a traditional shamrock shake from McDonald’s is sure to be a delight in your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.



  • 3 cups vanilla almond ice cream
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 13 drops food dye (I used Color Kitchen)
  • Toppings to add- dairy free whipped cream, cherries, sprinkles


  1. Combine all ingredients in blender
  2. Blend for 1-2 minutes until consistency is creamy and smooth
  3. Pour into glass and top with dairy free whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry, if desired


  • Substitutions: You can use coconut milk and coconut ice cream in place of almond to still keep it dairy free. 
  • I choose to use a food dye that is free of artificial dyes since this is a healthier version. My favorite dyes that are not artificial are Color Kitchen and Supernatural.
  • You can top with dairy free whipped cream and cherry or leave plain with just the ingredients listed.
  • The sprinkles I used are also Supernatural
