Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake

Making Doug and my boys feel special is very important to me, especially on Valentine’s Day. By simply adding sprinkles to the rim of the glasses, and serving the Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshakes in them, you can make a simple treat extra special.

One of my favorite chefs to watch is Bobby Flay. We have made several of his burgers from his book; Burgers, Fries & Shakes, but we haven’t tried any of the shakes yet. Until now…and I don’t think I’ll ever make another shake the traditional way.

With Nick having a little discomfort from his Invisalign Braces, I’m always looking for a fun treat for him to enjoy when his mouth is sore. And this Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake was perfect! And of course, we all enjoyed the shake as well!

One of the best things about shakes and smoothies, is that you can hide ingredients in them and the kids will never know. This time around, I didn’t add anything special, but recently when I made the Fruit Smoothies, I packed it full of fresh juice and vitamins.

The milkshake recipe in Bobby’s book called for Blackberries but I simply substituted Strawberries. And the addition of cream cheese made these Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshakes super rich and creamy.
