St Patrick’s Day Desserts and Drinks
I have to admit, sometimes our St Patricks Day food consists of green Jell-O for dessert. Though there is nothing wrong with that, these St Patricks Day desserts are MUCH better! They may take a little more time than Jell-O but it’s totally worth it! We are also including our favorite non-alcoholic St. Patrick’s Day drinks. I know, I know “Non-Alcoholic St Patrick’s Day Drink” sounds like an oxymoron. But since we don’t drink alcoholic beverages, we have to improvise sometimes.
- Shamrock shakes
- Mini Grasshopper Cheesecakes
- Mint Chocolate Fudge Swirl
- Mint Juleps
- Cool Cucumber Green Smoothie
