I don’t know about you but I sure do love a good milkshake. I am nut sure what is the best part about a lucky shamrock milkshake, the hint of mint or the cherries on top. After you finish your St. Patrick’s Day crafting fun, it is a great idea to treat yourself to a homemade lucky shamrock milkshake. If you are not super into crafting, you can always download and print some of my free puzzles and activities to do instead. I am sharing a new one in this post for the believers in magic, leprechauns and rainbows ending in gold.
There are so many kinds of ice cream out there in the marketplace these days. There are even choices for people who eat dairy free which I think is awesome. Personally, my favorite ice cream for this is Vanilla Bean, the real thing! The beans make it have such a strong vanilla flavor to compliment the mint in a lucky shamrock milshake. Of course, you don’t really have to put the mint in it at all!
- 1 1/2 C Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
- 1 C Milk
- 1 Drop Green Food Coloring
- 1/4 tsp Mint Extract (Optional
- Whipped Cream
- Maraschino Cherries
- Mix first four ingredients together in blender.
- Top with whipped cream and cherries.
The trick to the green is in getting the right amount of dye in the cup. One drop. That is all you need.
We have a Ninja that we love for single shakes and smoothies. It is so easy to use and clean. You can grab a Ninja Blender on Amazon.
About that new printable. I designed it so you can turn it into a little booklet of activities if you want. If that is how you want to use it, print it then cut it into four pieces and staple them together. It would work great for a classroom celebration.
