Dairy Free Irish Cream








Being 1/4 Irish I have to celebrate St. Paddy’s day properly. And that means with a good quality Irish Cream. Since I have pretty much given up real dairy I wanted to see if I could come up with a delicious dairy free Irish Cream recipe that would make my ancestors proud. I think I did it.
