Vanilla Peppermint Pattie Milk Shake

Valentine’s Day at our house usually consists of my husband and I celebrating at home with our children.  We have done this since the kids were little.  I am sure it was because it was difficult to find a babysitter or the fact that the restaurants had a two to three hour wait.  But either way, it has become a fun tradition at our house.

The entire family looks forward to having a nice “candlelight” dinner together.  The hubs and I usually get the kids a small gift or goodie from us and then we play games or watch a movie as a family.  It has become a time for us to enjoy and spend time with each other in a busy world that usually has us running from one thing to the next.  It has become a good night for us to reconnect.

This year I thought it would be fun to cap off our dinner and enjoy some good Old Fashioned Milk Shakes while playing games together.  Have you tried any of these yummy Coffee Creamers from International Delight?  They are not just for coffee people.  I added some to a Vanilla shake and you have a yummy dessert.

Now, unfortunately due to my recent milk allergy (among others) I will not be able to enjoy these with the family.  But some almond butter on a rice cake should be fine for me to along side them…right?! haha

Here is how you make them:

Old Fashioned Vanilla Peppermint Pattie Shake

3 cups of Hard Vanilla Ice Cream (not soft serve)

1/2 cup Milk

1/4 cup International Delight York Peppermint Pattie Coffee Creamer

Raspberries for garnish (optional)

Mint Garnish (optional)

Blend all ingredients together in your Blender until thick and creamy.  You can add more milk or Creamer to your shake depending on your preferences.  Serve in a tall, frosty mug with a stripe-y straw and a spoon.

I had a couple of kids and a husband who eagerly volunteered to be my taste testers for me.  I think they were a hit….
