Grab a straw and get ready to par-tay...relax or just plain old treat yourself...however it is you want to view it! I don't know about you but peaceful moments that are all about me...are few and far between.
Small indulgences like this one , especially if I don't hear "MOOOM" while I am at it, are bliss!!
Speaking of the "MOM's" scattered about many of our daily lives. What's up with this?
My knuckleheads text me from their phone and ipod like this:
Yeah THAT is 6 separate texts...like I can HEAR them bellowing for me from their friends houses, or when I'm not home. I thinks it hilarious! Anyone else get this?
Remember the (Better Than The Original) Irish Cream Recipe I shared the other day?? As promised, here is the first treat to make with it, that is IF you can keep it around long enough to make something with it after you whip it up!
Why not add some Homemade Irish Cream to a milkshake and enjoy a decadent Boozy Irish Cream and Oreo Shake!
When I was testing this out, I gave one to my husband...just to sample...he gave the glass back empty and my man is a vanilla-milkshake-only-person! Score!!
If you are looking for a fun treat to enjoy and want to add a lil something something to it in the form of alcohol...do it! It is delicious!! And if you need to hide in a closet or bathtub to enjoy a moment of solitude...so be it!
Boozy Irish Cream & Oreo Shake
5-6 scoops (about 2 cups) mint chocolate chip ice cream (green or white)
¾ cup Irish Cream
¼ cup milk
Optional Garnishes: Whipped cream, chocolate syrup, jimmies/sprinkles
Place all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Scrape it into a big ole glass, grab a straw and a spoon and enjoy!
Colleen's Notes: Feel free to add more or less Irish Cream to your shake, you can omit the milk altogether if you choose.
Making your own Irish Cream takes just 5 minutes and 6 ingredients...you will never want to taste the story bought stuff again!
