3 Adult Desserts for St Patty's Day

3 adult desserts for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon, and the holiday is a great time to show off your Blendtec blender by making some fun and creative recipes for a get-together with your friends. What would a St. Patrick’s Day party be without crème de menthe, Jameson Irish whiskey, Guinness beer, and Bailey’s Irish cream?

 I've incorporated these traditional St. Patrick’s Day libations in some great recipes for entertaining. While these recipes contain alcohol, you can adjust them to be alcohol free.



Lucky Leprechaun Milk Shake

3 c vanilla ice cream
1½ oz green crème de menthe*
1½ oz white crème de cocoa*
2 ice cubes
4–6 Andes chocolate mints, chopped (for garnish)

Add ice cream, crème de menthe, crème de cocoa, and ice cubes to FourSide jar and secure lid. Select "Ice Crush." Serve in chilled glasses. Garnish with chopped Andes mints. 

Makes 2 servings.

*For an alcohol-free milk shake, substitute mint chocolate chip ice cream for the vanilla ice cream and substitute 3 tablespoons milk for the alcohol.



Guinness Blender Ice Cream

1 c Guinness beer*
1 c whole milk
1 c sugar
½ tsp vanilla
5 egg yolks
2½ c heavy whipping cream
Mint leaves

Bring beer to boil in saucepan over medium-high heat; cook beer until it is reduced by about half. Set aside and allow to cool. Add milk, sugar, and vanilla to WildSide+ jar, and blend on Speed 1 for 10 seconds. Remove lid insert, and add egg yolks one at a time while gradually increasing blender speed to Speed 5. Blend until eggs are fully incorporated and mixture turns custard yellow. Add mixture to saucepan with beer, and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture into ice cube tray, and freeze until solid. After cubes are frozen, add cubes and heavy cream to WildSide+ jar. Select “Ice Crush.” For soft ice cream, serve immediately. For firm ice cream, pour mixture into container and freeze for 1–2 hours before serving. Garnish with mint leaves. 

Makes 4 servings.

*For an alcohol-free ice cream, substitute Guinness beer with dark, nonalcoholic beer (e.g., Kaliber, made by Guinness) and 1–2 tablespoons molasses. (The molasses will help compensate for the lighter flavor and thinner texture of dark, nonalcoholic beers.)



Blended Irish Car Bomb

3 c vanilla ice cream
3 oz Guinness simple syrup, divided* (see recipe below)
2 oz Bailey’s Irish cream*
1 oz Jameson Irish whiskey*
3 tbsp milk
2 ice cubes
2 oz dark chocolate, chopped

Add ice cream, 2 ounces Guinness simple syrup, Bailey's Irish cream, Jameson Irish whiskey, milk, and ice cubes to FourSide jar and secure lid. Select "Ice Crush." Pour into chilled glasses. Garnish with chocolate and remaining 1 ounce Guinness simple syrup. Makes 2 servings. *For an alcohol-free version, make the simple syrup with ½ cup dark, nonalcoholic beer (e.g., Kaliber, made by Guinness), 1 cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon molasses. Replace the Bailey’s Irish cream with Irish cream flavored coffee creamer, and replace the Irish whiskey with 1 extra tablespoon milk.

Guinness Simple Syrup

½ c Guinness beer
1 c sugar

Bring beer to boil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture has thickened. Cool mixture completely before using.

What are some of your favorite St. Patrick’s Day blended cocktails and desserts?

    Hi Cindy,
    You could try increasing the beer to 1 1/2 cups, or decreasing the vanilla. Or you can add more mint leaves to get more of a mint flavor. Hope that helps.

    I tried making the Guinness Blender Ice Cream because I wanted to use the Ice Cream mode on our blender. This recipe didn’t use that feature at all, but it was still easy to make. The only thing was that the ending ice cream tasted more like vanilla ice cream with a very mild, barely there hint of something. Not sure how to bring out the beer flavor more
