Green beer might be a popular drink to enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day, but this year we are celebrating with green coloured Shamrock shakes.

Vanilla ice cream, milk, peppermint syrup (find it at Cappucino King) and food colouring are blended together until smooth, then poured into your favourite glass. A dollop of whipped cream and a few bright, festive sprinkles are tossed on before serving.
