Celebrate National Cheesecake Day with a Milkshake
If you're a fan of rich, tasty desserts, make sure to mark July 30 on your calendar as National Cheesecake Day. This snack is often served with a variety of fresh fruits and can be the perfect end to a great meal.
Cheesecake was popular as far back as ancient Greek times and then adopted by the Romans. Rumors are that it was even given to the original Olympic athletes because its high calorie count was the perfect fuel.
Since ancient times, cheesecake has become popular in cultures around the world and is now made a variety of different ways. If you're looking for a creative way to celebrate this food's holiday, try making this unique strawberry cheesecake milkshake recipe in your high performance blender.
Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake
Nothing can mimic the one-of-a-kind texture of a fresh-made slice of cheesecake covered in strawberries, syrup and graham cracker crumbs, but you can recreate that amazing taste with your blender. Here's what you'll need:
- 3 cups vanilla bean ice cream
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 2 ounces plain Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Graham crackers
- Fresh strawberries
- Whipped cream.
"Consider serving this milkshake as a creative dessert."
Take your cream cheese out to soften when you are setting up your blender. Once it's ready, cut the block into small chunks and add it to your blender jar along with the ice cream, yogurt, milk, frozen strawberries, vanilla and graham cracker crumbs. Blend on HIGH until the mixture is completely smooth - this may take longer than your average milkshake.
Pour into small cups for you and your guests. It's tasty but rich, so you likely won't want too much. Add the graham crackers, strawberries and whipped cream as garnishes. Consider serving this milkshake as a creative dessert option after your next dinner party.
