Boozy Shamrock Shake

I woke up this morning with a brilliant idea to create Bailey’s Cookie Balls, but that didn’t go so well. Apparently, you cannot add 1/4 cup of Baileys to the recipe and not end up with a sticky mess! I added 1/4 cup of powdered sugar….still too sticky. So I added an additional 1/4 cup thinking it would soak up the extra liquid…..

I’m pretty sure that you have already figured out that they did not work, lol. ย Well then, let’s just go ahead and move onto the next recipe on the list…..Boozy Shamrock Shake! When I see a recipe that calls for peppermint extract, my brain sees peppermint schnapps!! ย Not for the alcohol content, but for the intense mint flavor that does not taste like toothpaste…..

They say that a pictures says a thousand words, well I only needed that photo to say one…..Vegan! I have included instructions for both, so I needed images for both. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the vegan option we are using Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream and canned, full-fat coconut milk {make sure you shake the can before you open it}…..

Boozy Shamrock Shake ingredients

If you don’t get a chance to make your ice cream ahead of time, this works great in a pinch. You just need to set it out on the counter for 20 to 30 minutes to soften.

Place the vanilla ice cream, milk, peppermint schnapps, and gel food coloring in a blender…..

Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into 1 large glass with 2 straws, or 2 smaller glasses and top with whipped cream {Coconut Whipped Cream} and decorative sprinkles…..

Skip the drive-thru, this Boozy Shamrock Shake takes much better |

Those decorative straws are really cute and great for photos, but they are completely useless to actually drink with!! ย Do yourself a favor and grab a real straw. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I used (2) 14.75 ounce Goblets in these photos. In reality, this shake should be divided into (4) smaller glasses…..according to official serving sizes. We all know how many of us actually follow those guidelines, right?

    You have no idea how excited I was when I saw the word “Vegan”! I used to LOVE shamrock shakes, and who doesn’t love a good cocktail? I am totally making this this week. Thank you!

    This is officially my favorite St. Patrick’s day recipe so far! I’m kinda glad your cookies didn’t work out so that it freed you up to make this instead. I am heading to the store TODAY to get some Bailey’s so I can “practice” this recipe a few times before St. Patrick’s Day (my kids had an entire week off due to snow days–I need this!). Thank you so much for linking up your recipe at This Is How We Roll Thursday.
