Yay! The weekend of St. Patrick’s day is upon us and it has been a beautiful week in So Cal.  When the sun is shining and leprechauns are running amuck, the only thing on my mind is a Shamrock Shake.  McDonalds coined this lovely name and their version is delicious.. but vanilla bean ice cream is SO much better than soft serve.  I whipped this up in no time and finished it even faster.  Thank you Saint Patrick!

Dryer’s doesn’t mess around when it comes to vanilla bean.  That stuff is good.  Mix it all in a blender! and you will get a green shake!

Then top with whipped cream and sprinkles!
