St. Patrick’s Day is definitely one of the most fun holidays of the year. We get to dress up in all things green and party like there’s no tomorrow with our friends! So in the spirit of everyone’s favourite Irish holiday, we’ve rounded up some of the most delicious (and pretty easy) green-coloured drink recipes.
It’s safe to say one of the best limited-time-only specialities to come from McDonald’s is their Shamrock Shake. Even though it’s usually only available during the month of March, it’s actually so easy to make that you can enjoy this vanilla, minty goodness any time of the year! We’re not sure if this milkshake will bring the boys to the yard, but it will be one of the most delish drinks you’ll ever taste.
-2 cups of vanilla ice cream
-1 1/4 cups of low fat milk
-1/4 teaspoon of mint extract (not peppermint)
-10 drops of green food colouring
Healthy Green Smoothie
Now this is a drink that tastes as good as it looks. Perfect for serving up at parties, it’s a healthy alternative that is super easy to make.
-Fresh Mint Leaves
Shamrock Mint Raw Food Smoothie
A drink that’s both healthy and delicious may seem too good to be true, but this Shamrock Mint Smoothie proves us wrong. And it’s perfect for getting those healthy nutrients!
Irish Cream Soda Float
Step aside Coke and Pepsi, I think we’ve just found our new fave fizzy drink!
Virgin Kiwi Mojito
If there’s one thing that gets us green with envy, it’s people with an effortlessly flawless complexion! So obviously when we saw the words “clear skin”, this became our new go-to drink. With just two simple ingredients that are packed with antioxidants known to help prevent wrinkles and signs of aging, that protect you from harmful UV rays, and that help to get rid of acne, we won’t just be drinking this during St. Patrick’s Day but all year long!
