Tasty summer berry cheesecake milkshake treat filled with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and of course, ice cream. It’s a beautiful blend of berries, ice cream, with a touch of cream cheese. Berry cheesecake that you can drink! (Find a way to make it light below.)
BERRY CHEESECAKE MILKSHAKE
Water and ice cream, that’s how you survive summer fun outside. Unless it’s raining, and raining, and raining. I’m getting excited to take kiddos to the beach for the first time this year and the rain keeps getting in our way. I miss our beach and milkshakes days from last year.
Little man and I had a little tradition to have milkshakes after spending the day at the beach. Frozen treats are quite satisfying to cool down after the beach. I have a special new recipe for him too.
My son loves berries. He eats blueberries with his breakfast almost every morning and a mix of berries and honey is his idea of a dessert. That’s why I always have blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries on hand.
After seeing a commercial for new blizzards at DQ, I knew that the summer berry cheesecake milkshake will be the perfect treat for little man. A milkshake that is packed with fresh berries, ice cream, and a touch of cream cheese is a summer-perfect treat.
I can’t wait to make these milkshakes again after we get home from our first beach trip this year.
HOW TO MAKE A MILKSHAKE LIGHT:
There are a few easy ways that I make my milkshakes lighter without compromising the
Number one substitution is of course, milk. Substitute skim milk for a much lower fat content.
Using frozen yogurt instead of ice cream is the next substitution that will make your milkshake waistline friendly. I use a classic vanilla frozen yogurt but other flavors can be used for different milkshakes.
I this Summer Berry Cheesecake Milkshake, I use cream cheese. You may use light or 1/3 fat cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese to lighter the fat and calorie count.
I never add any sugar to the milkshake, berries have enough sweetness and so does the ice cream/frozen yogurt. There is no need for additional sugar.
