Copycat McDonald’s Oreo Shamrock McFlurry

 

Here’s the easiest hack to make a Copycat McDonald’s Oreo Shamrock McFlurry at home. This turns out tasting just like the original and is really a simple way to make one at home.

 

Every year around the middle of February, the very popular Shamrock Shake is put back on the McDonald’s menu. This iconic shake made its debut nationally in February 1970 and 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the very popular green minty shake. So, McDonald’s debuted another minty frozen treat: the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry. On February 20, 2020. It was a huge hit then and still is just like the original Shamrock Shake. 

Just so you know, when St. Patrick’s Day is over, so is the chance to get one of these thick and creamy frozen treats. But, you can now enjoy both of these amazing treats anytime of year because you can make them at home in about five minutes. Both of these copycat recipes are so easy and the best part is, kids can help.

Just a note: McDonald’s uses their soft serve ice cream for the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry. But, since most of us don’t have soft serve in our homes, regular vanilla ice cream works just perfectly. Also, both of the shamrock desserts are made with mint extract. I happen to like peppermint extract, so that’s what I used in my recipes. Mint extract is sometimes hard to find in the grocery stores these days. However, peppermint is just about always right by the vanilla extract. I think because it’s more popular in dessert recipes. Again, the peppermint works out perfectly in both. Get ready for a magically delicious dessert experience that you made! 

For something extra special and savory, try my dear friend Regina’s Irish Soda Bread. It’s a really simple recipe that comes out perfect every time.

What you’ll need to make a homemade copycat McDonald’s Oreo Shamrock McFlurry…

Ingredients at a glance:

**All highlighted ingredients are ones I found on Amazon. I suggest you look in your grocery stores and craft stores before you order. This time of year the stores carry a lot of different extracts and sprinkles.

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice, 2 percent and even almond milk will work
  • 3 tablespoons half and half
  • 1/2 cup Oreo cookies
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoons, peppermint or mint extract, taste after blending. Only add 1/8 teaspoon if need more at a time. Too much can be very strong.  (I also found them on Amazon)
  • green food coloring  
  • whipped topping 
  • green sprinkles or confetti sprinkles any edible garnish for topping, optional 

 

 

 

Directions:

  1. In a blender,( I have this one in silver and black). Here’s another blender I use too. Add in the ice cream, milk, and half and half. Blend for just about 20 to 30 seconds. 
  2. Add in the extract and food coloring. Blend again for another 20 to 30 seconds. Check for the color and give a taste. Only add just a drop of the extract if needed.
  3. Add in the Oreos last. You want some pieces in every bite. Blend another 3o seconds. Pour into 2 cups and top with whipped cream, sprinkles and crumble up one or two Oreo cookies for the top. Dig in to the deliciousness! It may be too thick for a straw. But, if you want to sip instead of using a spoon. Try these jumbo smoothie straws, my kids love these for milk shakes and smoothies. Enjoy!
