Shamrock Shake

It’s not St. Patrick’s Day without a Shamrock Shake! We love these green minty drinks of deliciousness. And they’re not just limited to McDonald’s anymore, so many restaurants and shops offer them now. For the past few years on St. Patrick’s Day, our family has been going to the local chocolate / ice cream shop to enjoy some Shamrock Shakes. It’s been a really fun tradition and we’ve had a bit of Irish luck the last couple of years and had great weather and got to enjoy our shakes outside!
With how much our family enjoys these treats, I thought we should give making them at home a try. It’s so easy and quick and requires ingredients I almost always have on hand…Shamrock Shakes year round!!  Celebrate this St. Patrick’s by making yourself one of these delicious shakes!
