Peppermint Candy Cane Shake | The Hopeless Housewife


My daughter Madison loves her sweets and this shake is no exception. It’s easy enough for kids to make (with a little adult supervision), they will be so proud of themselves when they’re finished! We put ours in decorated mason jars and used candy-striped straws for extra cuteness!

Yield: 2 Shakes

    Life is not perpetual. Of course, this is a well known fact, but do we often remember about it? How can we feel the significance of life staying at the same place? They say if you don’t like the place where you are – move, you’re not a tree after all. By the same principle, I want to say that traveling – is an important component of interesting life. Let’s not waste life for nought but explore this wonderful planet! It remains to start moving, just click world’s wonders and you will see all the riches of our world which are near to us. Very often various places for recreation are just near to us, but we can’t find time for the connection with nature. Start reading not fashion magazines but brochures with ancient legends. A well known poem says “What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare…” Let’s change our life!
