The Shamrock Shake Pie is a delightful dessert inspired by the iconic Shamrock Shake. It features a creamy, mint-flavored filling within a crunchy graham cracker crust, offering a refreshing and festive treat perfect for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations or anytime you crave a minty sweet delight.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 graham crackers
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2½ cups milk, cold
  • ¼ teaspoon green food coloring
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 5.1 ounces box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 8 ounces container of whipped topping, thawed

Instructions

  1. Grease a 9-inch pie dish with butter or shortening and set aside.
  2. Place the graham crackers and brown sugar in a food processor and blend until fine crumbs form. Gradually pour in the melted butter while the processor is on low, until the crumbs start to stick together.

  6. Optional: Top with additional whipped cream and maraschino cherries before serving.
