Every year I allow myself exactly one Shamrock Shake per season. Don’t get me wrong, I could easily drink one per day (or even per meal?) but that is not the directions in which I want my thighs to expand right before beach season. I’ve never figured out what it is about this mildly minty shake that is so darn good. But it is just SO. DARN. GOOD. Since I usually get my shake when school is session – lest I have to share it with the whole car – my daughter never ever sees it. But this year she heard about them at school as asked me to get her one. GAH! What to do? My answer: make it at home. The beauty of making it at home is that I can actually add more to it and make it an over the top shake. Last night we got a little out of control with ingredients and ended up making what you now see here: the Shamrock Shake Sundae!
The Shamrock Shake of My Dreams
