Today's recipe is something special for those of us who like sweets.
It's the biggest, craziest, milkshake I could come up with and because of St. Patrick's Day coming up on Friday, I made it St. Patrick's day themed by adding green ice cream and rainbow sprinkles (because that's all you need to make something St.Patrick's Day themed right?)
Have you heard of a "Freakshake" before? They are becoming a new trend. Basically you take a milkshake and give it steroids. If you want to see some amazing and crazy milkshakes do a search on Pinterest for "Freakshake". People are coming up with the wildest milkshake varieties that you can imagine.
For this recipe, I used my husband's beer stein because it was the biggest glass in the house and added all the yummy stuff to it that I could think up.
This Shamrock shake is so sweet I recommend sharing it with a friend. There is no way I could eat this giant thing by myself so I let my three year old have some and it was too much for her too, haha.
Oh, and to anyone who knows me in real life- you are not allowed to let me complain about how I can't lose the 15 pounds I gained over the past year and a half when I'm making treats like this!
I channeled my inner Food Network star and made this video below
Gnome Tip: Use plastic chopsticks to secure your mini donuts and pierce mini snickers bars into the top of them to hide the chopstick.
