Shamrock Shakes

Our Irish friend Lyndsay had never heard of Shamrock Shakes. (Until Saturday after the parade when we treated her to her first frozen green delight!)

On my first trip to Ireland, the Irishman and I enjoyed Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's as we watched the parade.



The minty green shakes are available on this side of the pond as well if you can find them! Our local McDonald's carries them, but not all do. (There is even a really bad website devoted to tracking which McD's carry the shakes.)

And because of my love of cheesy Irish-ness, I have to share these...



and better yet...



I'm loving it!

Oh, a shamrock shake sounds so good! If only I could have dairy right now!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I've never tired the shakes. I guess I should try one out :)

I forgot about the Shamrock Shakes. They're almost as good as the Egg Nog Shake...
