Don’t let the title of this post fool you. While this milkshake is low on fat (1.5 g.) and calories (197) it is big on flavor, thanks to the fresh strawberries. And it is so easy and quick to make.
As soon as we got home from picking strawberries the other day, I whipped up a batch of milkshakes to reward our hard work. They were bursting with the natural sweet flavor of strawberries, which were less than two hours fresh off the vine. The kids loved them, and so did I. And the best thing about these shakes is not feeling guilty drinking them!
- 3 cups low-fat vanilla ice cream (I like Edy’s Slow Churned Rich and Creamy No Sugar Added)
- 1 cup of fresh strawberries, cut in small pieces
- 3/4 cup of lowfat milk (1%)
- Fresh mint and whole strawberries to garnish
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Garnish with fresh mint and a whole strawberry (I left the mint off the kids’ shakes.) Serve immediately. This recipe will make four servings, 3/4 cup each.

Bon appetit, and eat, drink and be merry!
