Shamrock Shakes: Make Your Own for St. Patrick's Day


ShamrockGreen has never tasted so good! No, we’re not talking about vegetables. We’re talking about shamrock green. St. Patrick’s Day is only days away, and if you’re celebrating already (why not, right?), we think you’ll love these shamrock shakes.

Why grab one at McDonald’s when you can make your own at home? You can get the kids involved with the process, and teach them about the significance of the shamrock while you’re at it.

Besides, if you’re making your own shamrock shakes at home, you won’t have to worry about the kids pestering you for a burger and fries while you’re zooming through the drive-thru; and come to think of it, you won’t feel tempted to indulge in a burger and fries yourself.

There is even a healthier variation of the shamrock shake so you can celebrate St. Patty’s Day in a guilt-free way!
