Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the 40 shades of green with a frosty beverage as pretty as the landscape of Ireland.
Perfect for both children and adults, this refreshing drink calls for minimal ingredients and can be whipped up in no time. Keep the ingredients on hand for a last-minute treat that can easily be adjusted by using your favorite gelatin in place of lime.
Sprinkle with candy shamrocks to add a festive touch in honor of St. Patrick—and don’t forget your shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day. After all, March 17 is a day for the wearin’-o’-the-green. From my family to yours, Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Cheers!
(Since there’s no such thing as having too many green beverages, here’s a recipe for Green Beer. And here are a couple more St. Patrick’s Day recipes. Enjoy!)
1 pint vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
1/4 cup lime gelatin (from a 4-serving size package)
3/4 cup milk or reduced-fat milk
1/4 cup half-and-half or fat-free half-and-half
3 to 4 drops green food color (optional)
Whipped cream (optional)
Candy sprinkles (optional)
In a blender, combine ice cream, gelatin, milk, half-and-half, and food color, if desired. Blend until thickened, about 25 seconds. Pour into glasses; top with whipped cream and candy sprinkles, if desired. Makes 3 servings.
