I think it almost tasted better than the real thing because it wasn’t overly rich and still had a nice flavor. Husband, who has never had a real McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, thought it was tasty and wanted seconds.
I know I'll make it again. (I might even sprinkle crumbled Thin Mints on top, even though I risk self-destructing from such a sweet combination.)
I definitely recommend the recipe, where you can enjoy the same shake for probably half the calories and none of the frustration.
