What could be better than ice cream and Bailey’s Irish Cream?

An adult milkshake that combines both.

We enjoy this shake for dessert. You can turn it into an ice cream sundae by pouring the Baileys over a dish of ice cream and then topping it with chocolate sauce.

Want something beyond dessert?

Here are 45 St. Patrick’s-themed recipes including breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, cocktails and snacks.

Ingredients Per Shake

  • 1.5 ounces Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 3 ounces milk
  • Two scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream*
  • Chocolate sauce

  • Chopped nuts (we like pecans or pistachios)
  • Green candies and sprinkles
  • Whipped cream

    1. BLEND together the milk, Baileys and ice cream until you reach a consistency you like. Add more ice cream for a thicker shake.

    2. SWIRL some chocolate sauce around the inside of a sundae dish or shake glass (or substitute what you have).

    3. POUR the shake into the glass. Garnish with whipped cream, mixed nuts, mint, mini meringues, anything green and tasty you can find.

    *If you don’t like mint, you can substitute another flavor; but the shake won’t be green. If you substitute vanilla ice cream, you can soften it and mix with green food color; then refreeze to harden before scooping. Or, you can color the milk green for a lighter green color.
