Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake


3/4 to 1 cup milk

1/2 cup strawberries (using frozen will make the shake thicker)

2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt (I use Zoi greek yogurt)

1 cup strawberry ice cream (I like Breyers, or Dreyer’s Grand because they’re natural and lower in fat)

1 graham cracker sheet (I like Trader Joe’s Honey Graham Crackers)

 

Blend milk and strawberries first, starting with 3/4 cup milk and adding more if shake is too thick. When desired consistency is achieved, add yogurt, ice cream and graham cracker. Blend until smooth, adding milk if shake is too thick to blend (or thicker than you like); now have a taste. If you want a bit more cheesecake flavor, add another tablespoon of yogurt and blend.

Options:

– Obviously, if you don’t like cheesecake at all, you can leave out the yogurt altogether and just make it a Strawberry Cream Pie shake.

– For a Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Shake, use banana instead of the strawberries.

– For a boost of fiber you won’t notice in the taste or texture, add some Benefiber.

– And of course, for something creamier and sweeter, you can add some extra ice cream. Just know you might have to add more milk in order to get it to blend!
