Waking up to Green Milk in the fridge is one of my very favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions (THANK YOU, Mom (aka Simply Sated). Whether it really was the leprechauns, or just my mom sneaking down to drop some food coloring into the milk jug, I SO looked forward to that green cereal as a kid. Magic. Fun and magic. I was never the kid who wanted to drink milk straight, green or not, so I’ve made this fun Green Milk flavored! If you’re like me, a little flavor goes a long way.

Vanilla Mint Green Milk is fun, festive, and perfect for kids and adults alike.

If your kiddos love milk, you can just add a few drops of food coloring to make it Magic Leprechaun Milk. Not rocket science, I realize. But sometimes super easy recipes are also super fun! Why not post about them?? I wish I had some pictures of me as a kid, opening up the refrigerator door to find the Green Milk. Just too fun. We don’t have kids yet, but when we do, you better believe this will be a yearly tradition. And because I’m an adult who wants everything to taste the best way possible, I’ll be making mine Vanilla Mint! Thank you very much! :)

This is so fun! We always dye our milk green on Saint Patricks Day too. My kids love it!
Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction
What a fun idea! My nieces would love this!
Vicki
This looks delicious. But i will use Almond milk. It is so much more delicious and healthier. I Just can't contribute to the savagery of the dairy industry. Babies should never be killed for someones glass of milk.

This looks delicious ! Could it be made with mint extract instead of using mint? Thanks

    Hey Victoria, yes this recipe uses Mint Extract. If you preferred using mint, you could make your own mint simple syrup and use that which would work great! Hope you love it!

I LOVE your idea of adding vanilla mint, and I sure wish I had thought to dip the milk jug in green sugar crystals :-) Love this post/photos, love you and love the shout-out!
