We are all a wee bit Irish when it's Shamrock Shake season. Here we will chat about making this minty treat at home, with or without making it boozie or adding CBD.
By reading this blog you may be thinking to yourself, "this doesn't seem like a very healthy recipe on a website that focuses on your health & wellbeing". You see, we believe that your health is important but your health includes your mental health too and sometimes it's just necessary to treat yourself to a lil sweetness. Of course, moderation is key when it comes to this kind of treat.
Amazing! Tastes fantastic and how cool is it to add my CBD right into my shake? My taste buds were happy and my mind was chill. Hell Yeah!- Jessica
March is officially here and we instantly spring into St Paddy festivities. It's Irish season and during this time of year everyone is Irish. We wanted to share our take on the famous shamrock shake so you can whip this up right at home. And the best part, we are going to show you how to make it with or without the booze or CBD so you have options.
Copycat Shamrock Shake
1 1/2cups mint chocolate chip ice cream
3/4cup whole milk
Garnish: whipped cream, sprinkles, maraschino cherries
Optional: vodka, whiskey, or Irish Cream.
Optional: Water soluble CBD drops
In a blender, combine ice cream, milk, (booze & CBD drops if desired). Blend until smooth.
Swirl some chocolate sauce round the inside of the glasses.
Pour milkshake into two glasses- This recipe makes two 8 ounce shakes
Top with whipped cream, sprinkles, & maraschino cherries. This part is optional but you'll probably want them.
Make it Boozie
If your looking to turn your shake into a boozie treat try adding 2oz of either vodka, whiskey, or Irish Cream.
We just found out that Baily's also has a vanilla mint shake option! These geniuses have combined vanilla, mint and a hint of chocolate blended with there already amazing Irish Cream. You can enjoy this over ice cream , in a shot, or drizzled into this recipe. Yum!
CBD me please
Did you know that CBD has a reputation of helping with inflammation, stress, anxiety, pain, sleep, & even hangovers? Pretty awesome, right? For more info on this please check out our blog CBD AND HANGOVERS: CAN CBD HELP YOU WITH HANGOVERS? .
To add CBD to your drinks you'll want to stick with a water soluble option vs the popular option of CBD oil. Adding CBD oil to a drink will cause the oil to separate from your beverage and also stick to your glass. It would be difficult to dose yourself properly with this kind of product loss. Water soluble CBD is meant to dissolve into your water. Please follow the instructions on your bottle to dose this option. If using SunKissed Greenz water soluble CBD you'll want to start with one dropper full and increase as needed.
