Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake

When I was a kid, I hated strawberries. With a passion. Actually, all fruit was considered contraband. I think at one point I liked strawberries and grapefruit for a period of 3 months but other then that, everything fruity was on my ew-gross-nasty-sick-and-wrong list.

Jam is on this list. It gives me the heebie jeebies.

But then I got married. And knocked up. And had a baby with a temperamental tummy. Whatever I ate would end up in my milk supply thus giving my darling daughter a stomach ache at 3 am.ย {Betcha didn’t think I was going to be discussing breast milk in my post today! Sorry. Well, sort of. I promise there IS a point.} For all you Mom’s who have dealt with this like I have, the usual culprits were what were giving my baby gas. Ironically, these foods were all that I was craving—>dairy {ice cream}, spicy food {spicy curly fries} and chocolate {umm…chocolate}.

As if being hormonal and sleep deprived after giving birth wasn’t enough, throw this into the mix and what do you get? Total train wreck.

My poor husband. {“Why are you crying?” “I *sniff* have no *sniff* idea!“}

My Mom was with us at this point cooking up a storm and filled our fridge with lots of yummy meals and FRUIT. Sacrelig. How dare she!ย 

But, of course she knew what was good for us and convinced me to try the strawberries….and apples…and blueberries. And you know what? I liked them. And not just liked them. LOVED them. Especially the strawberries. From then on, strawberries have been a staple in our house. We love them plain, in salads, in desserts and now in creamy dreamy shakes.

This was something I made on a whim as a fun afternoon treat for me and my munchkin. Oh my word. I forgot how delicious, fun, easy, fabulous and amazing milkshakes were. My life has been forever changed. I’m thinking this is going to become a regular thing.

My milkshake could bring all the boys to your yard….

Here’s how you do it:

Strawberries and cream in a blender

Start off with some milk in your blender and add in strawberries and cream cheese. You can’t see the cream cheese in the blender because I put it in before the strawberries because I’m smart. And by smart I mean blonde.

Cheesecake Ice Cream

Now comes the good stuff. Scoop in some vanilla bean ice cream into the blender too. Don’t go easy on this stuff.

Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake

Add the lid and blend until smooth! I don’t know about you but I could stick my face into this and slurp the day away.

But I guess I should pour it into some cute glasses and add a foot and a half of cream. You guys….twisting my arm…..Add some fresh strawberries as garnish and that’s it! Perfection right here. I like my milkshakes on the thick side, so I used a spoon, but feel free to add more milk and use a straw.

Enjoy this one guys! Perfect weekend treat for the family! Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    ahhh this looks SO good. I love strawberry frappes and shakes… never thought to add cream cheese!

  2. Julia {The Roasted Root}

    I love your story and also love that out of your experience came a delicious milkshake treat. If you through some chunks of cake in there or graham cracker, I’d probably have this every single night for dessert. Never thought to put cream cheese in a milkshake and by golly I think it’s brilliant!

  3. Julie @ Table for Two

    i’m glad you ended up liking strawberries because they’re sooo good! i will have a yard soon…so i’ll be perched there waiting for the boys..wait, what?

  4. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

    Heck yes! I would totally drink this for breakfast. There’s fruit in it!! Plus TGIF and all that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Barbara @ Barbara Bakes

    I’ve been wanting to make strawberry shakes at home with my new BlendTec. I’ll have to give this a try.

  6. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    OMG! I literally just made a strawberry cheesecake milkshake! Great minds think alike! What i can’t get over is how you used to not like fruit. I seriously can get my mind around that!

  7. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    Holy yum! This looks like it would go down so smooth… Delicious, decadent dessert of a drink! That’s a lot of d’s…

  8. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious

    This really does look like absolute perfection! I might just have this post-workout as a little treat ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    It’s so hard being a mom some days! I can relate to your story, 100%. I had to be extremely careful with what I ate, too.

    This milkshake looks incredible!

  10. VJ Kloosterman

    What kind of blender do you have? Do you like it? I shy away from anything that needs to be blended as mine never seems to do a great job!

  11. Kathryn

    If only I had a yard!

    I don’t often have milkshakes because there doesn’t seem to be a natural time of day to eat them (I think maybe I’m just weird) but this looks super-yummy!

  12. Ali @ Gimme Some Oven

    I lovvvvvvvvve strawberry milkshakes! So glad you eventually came around to the strawberry-love too. These look great!

  13. bestfoodies

    When I was pregnant milkshakes were my thing and it never went away. I never even thought of combining milk shake with cheesecake….yummy!

  14. Shirley

    I would have slurped this up as a child or adult. I don’t think I was crazy about strawberries as a kid, but I did like that strawberry-flavored liquid antibiotic. Who didn’t? This looks infinitely better, and I fully endorse the mountain of whipped cream!

  15. Anna @ hiddenponies

    My husband would love me forever if I made these, thanks for the idea! I see milkshakes being a regular summer treat around here now!

  16. Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca)

    This sounds fabulous! I love cheesecake, but have never had it in milkshake form ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Erika - The Teenage Taste

    I’ve been in love with strawberries for as long as I can remember, so I’m thinking I’d love this! Heck, with all this hot weather we’ve been having I could use a nice milkshake. Yum! ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Baking Serendipity

    Adding the cream cheese is genius! I love this ๐Ÿ™‚ And your fruit aversion totally cracks me up. I did the same thing with vegetables growing up, and now that I’m older and married (but no kid yet!) have finally come around to love them.

  19. Liz @ iheartvegetables

    Woah this looks SO deliciously fruity and creamy! The perfect summer treat! I’m glad pinterest led me to your blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Deborah

    The one fruit my daughter will *always* eat are strawberries. I’m betting I’d get quite a few I love yous if I made some of these up!

    I made a blueberry version of this milkshake for a cooking challenge. It was such a great milkshake – I definitely want to try it with strawberries! Thank you for sharing it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice recipe Lauren!

    For those who want a lower-fat alternative I do something very similar, but I omit the ice cream and substitute buttermilk for the normal milk in the shake. I know it sounds gross, but it is amazing and low fat/calories compared to cream cheese!

  24. Andrea @ Recipes For Divine Living

    You have no idea how good that sounds to me. Perfect timing too. Just bought some awesome strawberries.

  25. amelia

    i think this looks really good and i am going to try it one day with my grannie because we both like baking and cooking together
