HAPPY FRIDAY!! Tomorrow is St. Patty’s Day. My kids love to celebrate this holiday for ONE reason – SHAMROCK SHAKES! They are older now, so gone are the days of building leprechaun traps, or green milk in the fridge, but I am positive they will still love one of these this year. This is the only time of the year I make Shamrock Shakes. They are super simple and so much fun. I found the milk bottles at Michael’s and had the straws and glitter shamrocks laying around from last year. I simply stuck them to the straws. Both of my kids hate whipped cream, so we keep ours pretty simple, but feel free to top them with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry, or add add some booze for a fun adult version. Sláinte!
