An easy blender recipe for Irish Cream that’s ready in 5 minutes. One sip and you’ll never buy it again!
I’m sharing an easy blender recipe for homemade Irish Cream. It comes together in less than 5 minutes and is SO much better than the store bought brand!
I shared this recipe previously seven years ago (*gulp!*) in a Novel Baker post and book review. It’s so good, it’s worthy of it’s own post with updated photos!
If you’ve never made Irish Cream Liqueur before, you’re in for a treat! It’s dangerously good and once you’ve had it there’s no going back to the bottled stuff on the liquor store shelves. This recipe makes 30 ounces or 15 (2 oz.) servings so you can divide it to share as a gift with friends or family for St. Patrick’s Day. You can find links for swing top bottles for gifting at the bottom of this post.
Here’s what you need:
☘️ 1 1/4 cups Irish whiskey (I used Jameson)
☘️ 1 cup heavy cream
☘️ 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
☘️ 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
☘️ 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
☘️ 1/2 tablespoon instant espresso
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined. Transfer mixture to a clean glass bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Shake well before using.
Add a shot of Irish Cream to your coffee for Irish Coffee.
Top Irish Coffee with whipped cream and some shaved chocolate if desired.
Indulge in Irish Cream over ice to sip or enjoy some over vanilla ice cream for an easy dessert.
Use it to make an easy 5-minute microwave dessert: Irish Cream Fudge with Pistachios
or in Irish Cream Scones for a teatime treat.

OMG…Irish Cream IS MY weakness….I just LUV it!!! This recipe is a “I have to do it!!” franki
I think of this often, I’m afraid to make again since I’m working outside so much I might end up too relaxed and happy!
Congrats to Cyndi! Thanks for the post Mary. Enjoy your weekend. Clara❤️🍀
Top of the Morning, to you, Mary! I’m all out of Bailey’s. My cute little Irish Coffee mugs are empty and waiting for another celebration. I think I’ll add these ingredients to the shopping list and follow your lead. Looks delicious! Happy Saturday!
Love Irish Cream! Can not wait to make my own batch.
Mary, using this recipe I think I would like Irish Coffee. The Irish Coffee I had at Temple Bar in Dublin had too much whiskey for my taste. Thanks for sharing!
Awww, Mary, thank you so much! My Irish eyes are smilin’ for sure! ☘ Just finishing my St. Patrick’s Day decorating, inspired by your great posts. My table will be extra pretty with that beautiful Shamrock runner. You made my day! ☘☘☘
I love this. I’m with Pam. Irish Coffee ordered out is always too strong for me! I definitely do not need to wish I was Irish! 😊 ☘️
You know how I love this, Mary! I’ll be making it soon. I made your 🍀Irish Apple Cake 🍀today.
Dangerous indeed Mary! No doubt this tastes amazing, Happy St. Pat’s Planning:@)
Bailey’s is one of my favorite treats, and I remember thinking I wanted to try your recipe when you posted it before…since I am currently drooling, this is going on my to do list! Thanks Mary!
