This McDonald’s copycat recipe for the Shamrock Shake is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any day you need a sweet, minty treat!

Hi guys, happy last day of the week!

I’m updating this post for the 3rd time because I hated the pictures. I always say drinks are my favorite to photograph (I mean, look at these gorgeous margaritas) but shakes are a different story. The whipped cream sinks or everything starts melting together so you scrape off the first whipped cream and do another swirl. And repeat 57 times.

But I love these shakes and I want everyone to make them because they are amazing. Plus I read that McDonald’s is only releasing them to select restaurants this year and that’s just wrong.

I had my first Shamrock Shake 2 years ago, I think. Crazy, right? This recipe had been on my site for several years at that point.

Anyway, I like to claim that I don’t like mint flavored things so I never really understood the fuss over them but, you guys, I got it after that first one. It’s sweet and the right kind of minty and just the most perfect milkshake you can imagine.

Paleo strawberry ice cream is so yummy! Bursting with fresh fruit, it’s one summer treat that can’t be missed.

Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream - a healthier way to do ice cream. Only 4 ingredients and super delicious!

One of my favorite things about summer is homemade ice cream. I have already made several different ice cream recipes this summer, including my favorite pistachio with chocolate chunks and a homemade orange sherbet that my kids couldn’t stop raving about.

But, you know, I don’t exactly need to be eating real dairy ice cream every day. It makes me so sluggish and blah the following day every time. So yeah, that’s where this Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream came in.

Paleo ice cream is actually really easy. Like, even easier than regular homemade ice cream because the coconut milk just doesn’t seem to scorch as easily as heavy cream.

Tell me I’m not the only one that always scorches the heavy cream.

So paleo ice cream is just coconut milk (the canned kind, not the kind in the carton in the refrigerated section) with honey and egg yolks. You cook that down until it’s nice and thick and then chill it overnight. After that, you blend it up with your fresh strawberries and then freeze it in your ice cream maker.

Homemade Orange Sherbet - you will never want store-bought orange sherbet again after trying this recipe! So simple and so delicious!

Hey, y’all!

Do you guys remember the Flintstones Push Pops?

I just had to google them to make sure I didn’t make them up. But I have these weird memories that only kind of make sense of staying with my kindergarten teacher in the summers (she had a pool!) and we’d walk to the gas station close to her house for a treat on Fridays and I’d always go for the Flintstones Push Pops.

Or candy cigarettes. The 90’s were weird, man.

Do you have memories like that? Where you wonder if you made it all up? I was so young but I have all sorts of fuzzy memories like sitting in her kitchen and listening to the rain on their tin roof while she made fried chicken.

Pistachio Ice Cream with Chocolate Chunks - the most delicious pistachio ice cream!

Hiii guys, we made it through another week. I made ice cream to celebrate.

You were expecting a cocktail?

Yeah, I know.

My life’s been weird this last month and I’m so out of this whole blogging routine right now. I have, however, made 3 kinds of ice cream in the past week so… let’s just just go with it.

Next week I’ll make a cocktail. Promise.

In the meantime, I made that grapefruit ginger bourbon sour from last year the other night and it was just as delicious as I remembered. So if you are looking for a drink idea today, use that one!

So, serious coffee question for you today.

Are you iced coffee in the summer and then hot coffee in the winter?

I am iced coffee all year long. I don’t care how cold it is, I don’t care if it’s snowing. I’m getting an iced coffee.
