It’s the time of year—leprechauns and pots o’ gold. What else could make March so delightful? A Shamrockin’ Shake, of course!
Think about it: cool, creamy vanilla (vegan!) ice cream swirled with peppermint—feels more like St. Christina’s Day than St. Patty’s Day to me.
This shake is unbelievably easy to make (like all of our recipes), and is super rewarding—in a way that a pot o’ gold isn’t. You know, because it tastes good, and gold would chip your teeth if you tried to eat it.
Here’s what you’ll need:
First, scoop the cup of ice cream into a mixing bowl and leave on the counter for about five minutes. Next, add the soymilk and peppermint extract. You can mix everything in a blender if you want, but I prefer to grab a fork and stir everything really fast—hey, it does the trick, ya know?
After everything is mixed well, add a few drops of green food coloring (a little goes a long way). Stir until the color is evenly distributed, pour into a glass, and you’re done!
Bonus: I heard if you make this drink on St. Patrick’s Day, you won’t get pinched (because it’s green!).
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
