So here is my green recipe tribute to St. Patricks Day! ……..
Yeah I know it isnt the most intense green color, but at least I tried! ha This pie was amazingly delish. I found it off of Joy in my Kitchen. What a great food blog she has! She must have used a lot more green food coloring than she says in her recipe because her version looks way greener than mine! Who cares, it was really good and that’s all that matters. It looks deceiving because you would think this is made of ice cream, but it isn’t. It is marshmallow fluff, whip cream and milk all mixed together with some peppermint extract. Very easy. Very good. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed! : )
P.S. I am FINALLY printer-friendly! At the end of each post/recipe there is a green ‘printer-friendly’ button so you can print off the recipe! : )
