Homemade Shamrock ShakeAt some point in time, a tasty, minty green milkshake became a classic St. Patrick’s Day treat. I’ve actually been in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day and didn’t see anyone drinking a green milkshake! 😉 But, it does make for something fun to help celebrate! Add in a few rainbow candies from the leprechauns to make it a fun over-the-rainbow shamrock shake! The kids are SURE to love it!
