Traditionally a green, mint flavored milkshake – you will love this deliciously easy copycat recipe for a Shamrock Shake! The creamy, minty goodness that is a Shamrock Shake is just too good to pass up as a special treat for St. Patrick’s Day.
We love to go all out for Holidays, with special treats and themed foods and crafts – it’s a great way to make special memories with the kids and always a learning experience.
Our St. Patrick’s Day festivities are filled with Leprechaun shenanigans – we set elaborate Leprechaun traps and wake up to find little green footprints and a few gold coins left behind from our wee little leprechaun friends.
I always make sure to make a delicious family dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage – you have GOT to try my crock pot corned beef and cabbage, so tasty and EASY – and for dessert, a Shamrock Shake!
