Irish Cream Mint Shake for St. Patrick's Day with Andes Mints #12Bloggers

St. Patrick’s Day just might be a big deal in your house if you are Irish or your husband’s name is Patrick. This year we celebrate with an Irish Cream Mint Shake made with one of my favorite wrapped treats because when I wanted to make this mint shake recipe there was only one ingredient at the top of the list. Andes mints are a must have for this recipe.

Making a St. Patrick’s Day shake is super easy and since this was the first shake we ever made, it was also a fun one too. If you want the bright and pretty green of St. Patrick’s day then be sure to add the green food coloring, but this step is completely optional.

    I just love that you used coffee creamer to get the Irish cream flavor! These sound delish!


    Would it be wrong if I had this for dinner tonight?
