The beginning of March means the arrival of spring, and let’s not forget, St. Patrick’s Day too. McDonald’s offers Shamrock Shake throughout March. However, if you’re craving this minty milkshake during any other month of the year, worry not—Starbucks has you covered. Starbucks offers several frappuccino concoctions, so you can have the famous Shamrock Frappuccino whipped for you.
How to order a Shamrock Shake at Starbucks
Here’s how you can order a Shamrock Shake at Starbucks:
For a tall
Order a Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino with one pump of peppermint, one scoop of Matcha, one scoop of vanilla bean powder, and no classic syrup.
For a grande
Order a Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino with two pumps of peppermint, one and a half scoops of Matcha, one and a half scoops of vanilla bean powder, and no classic syrup.
For a Venti
Order a Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino with two pumps of peppermint, two scoops of Matcha, two scoops of vanilla bean powder, and no classic syrup.
For a greener Shamrock frap or one with a stronger peppermint flavor, add more peppermint pumps and Matcha scoops as required. A Shamrock Shake can be slightly complicated to make, so be patient with your Starbucks barista. If there’s a long queue at the Starbucks outlet, use the Starbucks mobile app to place your order. Using the Starbucks rewards program to order your Shamrock frap can help you earn lots of stars.
Also, while McDonald’s doesn’t offer any dairy-free options, Starbucks offers several alternatives for milk to cater to vegans’ needs. Ordering a dairy-free Shamrock Shake at Starbucks is as easy as asking for soy, coconut, or almond milk instead of whole milk and leaving out the whipped cream topping. You can even make your own dairy-free whipped cream or purchase one from your local grocery store.
