In the past, I have shared here how my kids love to go to McDonald’s. So over the winter break, my girls and I went to McDonald’s for lunch one of the days they had off.
During this visit, McDonald’s finally had their famous Shamrock Shake on their menu. Yes, it is indeed that time of the year for Shamrocks, Leprechauns and more with St. Patrick’s Day being right around the corner now.
So made sense to find McDonald’s offering this creamy and rich St. Patrick’s Day themed drink on their menu.
While I happen to love this shake, I don’t love the extra calories. Granted it is only offered for a limited time and is a special treat. But still I would rather a bit lighter version if possible. That is where the Shamrock Float Drink Recipe I make at home for us during this time of the year comes into play.
See my Shamrock Float Drink is still pretty sinfully good. But it is lighter and a bit less calories using lemon-lime soda instead of milk. Granted I still use ice cream. But still a few less calories and still as tasty as ever!
And this one pairs perfectly with the ever popular Lucky Leprechaun Fudge I make here for this time of the year, too.
Therefore, we can not only enjoy a festive and colorful dessert with green colored fudge. But also we can wash it down
with an equally cheerful and sinfully yummy Shamrock Float Drink, too.
See perfect St. Patrick’s Day celebratory food for all!
