Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

Do I have a goodie for you today! This is another one of my magazine rip out recipes that I found in Better Homes & Gardens magazine a few years back. The original recipe was actually a raspberry shake, but I am more of a strawberry lover, so I ended up changing the recipe up a bit. How can you go wrong with a recipe called "strawberry cheesecake shake?" Mmmm, Mmmm!

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake #Valentines Day


12 oz frozen strawberries, thawed
3 oz cram cheese, softened
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 quart vanilla ice cream
2 12oz cans cream soda
Fresh strawberries for garnish (optional)


In blender, combine the strawberries, cream cheese, almond extract, 1/2 the ice cream, and 1/2 cup of the cream soda.

Cover and blend until smooth.

Divide blended mixture among 6 tall 16oz glasses. Add a scoop of the remaining ice cream to each drink. Top each drink with the remaining cream soda. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

Serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.

  5. Oh goodness does that sound YUMMY! I'm gonna have to give this one a try. Yesterday I attempted making a mocha frappucino but didn't exactly keep track of what I put in there so idk if I can duplicate it.

    And Theresa you can afford to drink a few of these shakes your perfect :)


    1. Ha, aren't you too sweet, but I'm far from perfect lol. If you end up figuring out that frappucino recipe, please do share. I have yet to attempt to make one myself. Your recipes are always so good, I'm sure if you like it, I will like it!
