How to Make Shamrock Pudding With Your Kids to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

When my boys were little, celebrating St. Patrick's Day created a challenge. Going to an Irish pub and drinking green beer was out of the question. I wasn't a fan of corned beef and cabbage so making that for dinner got ruled out. There weren't St. Patrick's Day books to read, songs to learn, or animated specials to watch.

When I was a kid, we'd pinch anyone at school who wasn't wear green. But even that tradition has long faded away, which is probably a good thing. After all, who wants to get pinched to celebrate a holiday?

The only thing I could think of doing was taking my boys to McDonald's for shamrock shakes but that was nothing too special. Then I found this incredibly simple recipe for Shamrock Pudding – the perfect thing to make with my then preschoolers. Here's how to do it:

1. Gather the ingredients: pistachio instant pudding, milk, green sprinkles.

2. Spoon a small amount of pistachio instant pudding into each cup. 

3. Add milk. Stir the mixture until the desired consistency is achieved.

4. Add green sprinkles. Place in the refrigerator to get firm. 

Eat and enjoy! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

After years of searching, I finally found a St. Patrick's Day book that my sons loved. It's all about catching that elusive leprechaun. My boys asked me to read it many times each March and it quickly became a family tradition.
