Deliciously Irresistible Vanilla Bean Shamrock Shake

Deliciously Irresistible Vanilla Bean Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick's Day

With St. Patrick's Day just a few days away, I figured it was time to whip up a festive treat for my family! Milkshakes are always a quick and easy option! My family loves Shamrock Shakes, but I'm not a big fan of mint flavored milkshakes, so I made a milkshake that we all would love. Vanilla Bean was the winner!

I'm going to be honest with you - we don't do much to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I'm not Irish, but Grant and my kids are, so we try to do something little. A few books, a few treats, a few art projects, a movie or two, and we're done! I mean, let's be honest here: it's more of a drinking holiday, so it isn't really suitable for kids, and since I don't drink (and my husband drinks very little), it's not our thing. So this year, we're going to party with these deliciously irresistible Vanilla Bean Shamrock Shakes, instead!
