This Shamrock Shake Pie is your favorite McDonald’s Shamrock Shake made into an easy no bake pie!
This recipe is only six ingredients and you can make it in less than 5 minutes! Of all the treats you could make for St. Patrick’s Day, you for sure need to make no bake pie!
Do you guys know that when I started blogging, I was so hesitant to try recipes. I didn’t have the confidence to cook for strangers on the internet. I didn’t think that I would be good at creating recipes. But the thing is that I really love to eat. And I really do love to cook. I love to create. Coming up with new recipes really is a joy that I couldn’t deny. So I started dipping my toes in the waters of developing recipes.
But I started doing it by creating recipes that were . . . weird. Desserts that were other desserts mutated. My S’mores Magic Bars or my Krispy Kreme Pie are perfect examples. I started making cocktails by smashing two other cocktails together. Like my Strawberry Daiquiri Sangria or more recently my Mojito Margarita (seriously so good!).
SHAMROCK SHAKE PIE
Another one of those early weird dessert combos was this Shamrock Shake Pie! I recently made a video of it and decided the photos needed an update.
If every year around this time you start craving a Shamrock Shake, you are going to want to make this pie! It is so easy, fast, and delicious. I love a good no bake pie. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Another great no bake pie that has become super popular recently is my No Bake Baileys Chocolate Pie.
WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE A SHAMROCK SHAKE PIE?
You only need six ingredients for this amazing dessert!
- instant pudding mix
- cool whip
- green food coloring
- mint extract
- store bought pie crust (or you could use this great graham cracker crust recipe)
CAN I USE WHIPPING CREAM INSTEAD OF COOL WHIP?
The short answer is no. Besides being lazy, the reason that I use Cool Whip is that it is stabilized. Homemade whipped cream is not. So using homemade whipped cream will result in a melty pie. If you want a homemade option, I would recommend this Homemade Cool Whip.
