How To Make An Irish Cream Milkshake

- Pour into a large glass.
- Serve with a straw after topping it with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry!
Delicious Variations To Try!
- Substitute the vanilla ice cream in this recipe for another flavor of ice cream! Chocolate, coffee, mint chocolate chip, caramel, or even cookies n’ cream would be tasty!
- Topping these milkshakes are one of the best parts, try using Dalgona Coffee instead of whipped cream! Then drizzle them with a layer of hot fudge, chocolate syrup, coffee syrup, or caramel syrup.
- Add toppings such as Andes mints, mini chocolate chips, oreo cookies, or mint cookies!
- Make them extra fancy! Spread frosting, chocolate fudge, or marshmallow cream around the rim of the glass and then roll in it crushed toppings. Sprinkles, crushed up cookies, or candy would work well!
