Magically Delicious

As kids, we are taught to look for the first signs of spring: robins, crocuses, the days start getting longer and warmer. But as a adult, I have found a new sign of spring: McDonald's Shamrock Shake.

I discovered this delightful treat about two years ago, and was immediately a fan. Trouble is, if it's available in your area you can only get it for a limited time. But about the rest of the season?

My sister found this recipe on the Internet for me last year. Now I can have a Shamrock Shake any time during the season. And you can too, which is a relief especially if you can't, heaven forbid, find it in your area.

  • 2/3 cup milk
