St. Patricks Day is around the corner! Let's be honest, I don't really go out to celebrate and my acknowledgement of it is wishing my Dad a happy birthday. But to be really honest, who doesn't love any excuse to consume milkshakes and sugared cereal?

Growing up we didn't really have sugared cereal around, so when I moved out on my own I was excited to have freedom in picking my breakfast of choice (which was always French Toast Crunch). Until today I'd never even had Lucky Charms, but I knew that I could whip them into something magical. 

I suppose you could even swap the cereal milk out for a shot of your favourite alcohol and drink these all afternoon instead of green beer on the 17th! Or, even this breakfast! It's got cereal, it's got milk - what more could you ask for in a breakfast milkshake? 

Luck of the Irish Milkshake
serves one

  • 3 heaping scoops of vanilla ice cream (I recommend PC Ice Cream Shop's Vanilla Bean)
  • 1/4 cup Lucky Charms cereal
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • whipped cream (preferably homemade, but store bought will suffice)
1. In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup of Lucky Charms cereal. Set aside. 
2. Put your glass into the freezer to chill.
3.. In a blender, add 3 heaping scoops of ice cream. Drain cereal milk from bowl into blender, and add a few spoonfuls of the cereal. 
3. Blend for 30 seconds. Pour milkshake into frosted glass. Top with one more scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, and garnish with remaining cereal.
4. Serve and enjoy!

Do you have a favourite milkshake? I think they're underrated - I may make it my own personal goal to bring back the milkshake! Who knows, maybe it'll be the next craze (watch out donuts!)
