Make Your Own Shamrock Shake! [Recipe]

The elusive Shamrock Shake is back at McDonald’s, and this year it’s available nationwide. What used to be only at select restaurants (and has shockingly been around since the ’70s) is now just a drive-thru away. But it’s always more fun to make your own!

Try this milkshake recipe from McCormick® which, according to a McDonald’s spokeswoman, is strikingly similar to what you’ll get at the golden arches.
