Philadelphia (CW Philly) — Every year, in early March, people flock to McDonald’s for the restaurant’s famous Shamrock Shake. The mint-flavored shake, topped with whipped cream and a cherry, is just what people need to get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit.

However, you don’t have to anxiously wait for the seasonal item to be added to the menu. Instead, try making a homemade Shamrock Shake. Check out the simple recipe, courtesy of Mom Endeavors, below!
