Shamrock Shake Shots

DIY Shamrock Shake recipes are making the rounds on the foodie-interwebs this Saint Patrick’s Day season. And what could be better than NOT going to McDonald’s and instead making your own minty green treat at home?? Making your own minty green treat at home, adding some booze and gelatin to the mix, and turning out some amazing jello shots! Vanilla ice cream, milk, a hint of mint, and whisky make these shamrock shaped shots (say that 3 times fast) special. Not into whisky? Vodka will do, as will peppermint schnapps (leave out the mint extract). Go nuts, and have a happy St. Patrick’s day!

4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder
1 3/4 cups cold milk
1 cup sugar
2 cups (1 pint) vanilla ice cream, softened
3/4 cup whisky
1/4 tablespoon mint extract
4 drops of green food coloring
Whipped topping and green sugar for garnish

Pour the cold milk into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin on top. Allow the gelatin to soak for 2-3 minutes, then begin to heat on low, stirring constantly until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes). Stir in sugar until fully dissolved.Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Whisk in ice cream and whisky. Stir in mint extract and food coloring.

Pour the mixture into a 13×19 or equivalent sized pan. Refrigerate overnight until firm.

Dip the pan in warm (not hot) for 15 seconds to loosen he gelatin. Use mini shamrock shaped cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. Garnish with green sugar and whipped topping and serve.

  1. What if I just didn’t use the cookie cutters and just ate it right out of the pan?

    • Hahaha… you could do that! In fact, forget the pan. Just make in a mixing bowl, slather it in whipped cream and eat it with a spoon!

  2. these are a great idea!

  3. They’re lumpy and curdled looking! Should I have melted the ice cream first? :-(

    • Hmmm… I didn’t have that problem but yes, softening the ice cream first would probably ensure more consistent results.
