St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and today, I’m sharing boozy milkshakes with y’all.

Why I love this recipe:

The combination of stout beer and chocolate is one of my favorites, and these boozy milkshakes just sing with it. We’ve also added a decadent homemade Irish Cream that we whip up a bit… because it’s fun and delicious and the perfect topping.

These Chocolate Guinness Milkshakes also incredibly easy to make, requiring just a few ingredients and 15 minutes tops.

In addition to these tools above, you’ll need a few ingredients to make these boozy milkshakes.

  • Chocolate ice cream
  • Guinness beer—you could also use another stout beer, as stout beers tend to pair well with chocolate
  • Half-and-half
  • Granulated sugar
  • Irish whiskey—your favorite brand or what you’ve got on hand

How to make Chocolate Guinness Milkshakes

Blend the ice cream and Guinness together in a blender until smooth.

In a bowl, combine the half-and-half with the sugar and Irish whiskey in a medium-sized bowl, and whip for using a hand mixer. The mixture will get frothier, but it won’t turn into whipped cream because it doesn’t have the fat content.

Pour a little bit of the milkshake into a glass, then add a little Irish Whiskey Cream, and continue this process back-and-forth until two milkshakes have been made.

Enjoy cold!

Quick tips and tricks for the best Boozy Milkshakes

  • Make sure your beer is cold! That’ll keep the texture of the milkshake beautiful.
  • Double or triple the recipe for a crowd. So long as your blender is large enough to handle it, you can make this recipe for more people to enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. If you make a big batch of these milkshakes, and they’ll be drunk a little later, pop the blender container into the fridge to keep it cold until someone is ready to drink it. This will keep it for up to an hour.
  • Switch it up! Instead of making the frothy Irish Whiskey Cream, serve these Chocolate Guinness Milkshakes topped with sweetened whipped cream or add a shot of Irish cream to the milkshakes!

  1. This is making me wish I could handle dairy a bit better. Might be worth the consequences though. ALSO: those glasses! Super cute!

    1. You could totally use a vegan ice cream or a dairy-free one, Erini! I’ve done this, too, because sometimes, my body can’t handle dairy well, either. Thank you!

  2. I’m social media stalking you today for baby news! I hope you get enjoy this milkshake soon, mama! We have Guinness in the house right now so I may be partaking in one of these shortly!
