Is it just us or are we just flying through this year holiday after holiday! It seems like we were just posting Christmas treats last week and here we are already on our second post for St. Patrick’s day. Our first was the launch of February’s mix kit Lucky you!
Today we’re having a little fun with ice cream with this St. Patrick’s Day Mint Freakshake! This mint shake is a great way to work ice cream into a crazy fun dessert! With adding sprinkles and lots of sweets, we had so much fun making this dessert.
Some of you might be a little unsure what on earth is a freakshake…other’s of you might be just as in love with them as we are! Freakshakes are a trendy new dessert that combines a shake plus a few other yummy treats all into one giant milkshake!
Naturally these milk shakes are a little well much hints the word freak, so we created a slightly smaller portioned shake. Also it’s good to note, like all good things more is well more. And by more we mean cha-ching. So we thought it would be fun to create our very of St. Patrick’s Day Mint Freakshake using things we love and featuring some of our favorite St. Patrick’s day sprinkles + straws!
After all, who doesn’t love a local Shamrock Shake at the drive thru? That was our inspiration for this delicious mint dessert. The rest of the sweets are just an aesthetically pleasing addition.
Top with cake, cupcakes, or brownies like we did here. There’s no specific to a freakshake, you measure that with your sweets love heart!
