Where are my Potter people? I can’t get enough of the insanely popular Harry Potter book series and the equally awesome movies. To say I love it is an understatement! When I received the invitation from Marissa at Rae Gun Ramblings to participate in her “Happy Harry Potter” series a second year in a row I couldn’t say no. There is no other place to find better and more fun projects, recipes, and crafts all focused around the greatness that is the Harry Potter book series. You can follow that link above to see all the projects from the series. I can’t wait to check them out myself! My part of the series is a tasty frozen butterbeer treat that we couldn’t get enough of. Not only is this drink super yummy, it’s also crazy easy.

We went to Universal Studios Orlando last September and it was absolutely wonderful! We went with a group for a conference and long story short, we had Hogsmeade to ourselves for two hours with all the butterbeer and pumpkin juice we wanted. You bet your golden snitch I took advantage of that! I decided it was a must that I try both the regular and frozen butterbeers plus a bottle of pumpkin juice. The frozen was my favorite and it made me want to try making my own version. This version I made is like a freeze you would get from a restaurant with soda and ice cream but tastes like that wonderful, frothy butterbeer. I’m so excited for you to try this recipe!

And now that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is open in Hollywood, now’s the time to book! Just click here and you’ll be on your way to a Potter-filled vacation in California!
