Strawberry Yogurt Milkshake

Yum
 Have you ever forgotten you had something perishable in the fridge? Well I had a pint of sad limp looking strawberries that somehow go pushed to the back of the fridge.  Luckily they were still perfectly good to eat, but my kids would have nothing to do with them if I just put them out and said, "enjoy".  So I threw them into a milkshake and added some yogurt to make it less guilty.  It turned out fantastic because the tartness of the yogurt cut through the very sweet ice cream.   I felt like I was at the 1950's Happy Days Diner sipping my strawberry milkshake.... all I needed was Richie Cunningham to walk through my door and a poodle skirt to make the walk down memory lane complete.  Yes, I have been watching too much TV.... :)

  Ingredients:
2 cups of cleaned strawberries
1 cup of milk ( I used 2%)
1 cup of vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup of plain lowfat or nonfat yogurt

Directions:
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Enjoy.

  11. Oh Ramona! How fun (and pretty!) I've had milkshakes on the brain lately and strawberry is definitely my favorite flavor! The great thing about those 'sad, limp' strawberries is that they probably got a little sweeter over time! I bet your kids were thrilled to see these shakes appear that day! I know I would be! I'm putting on my poodle skirt and saddle shoes and coming right over! : )

  18. Ha! I have to "trick" my kids into eating food sometimes too. I love this way to use up something that was going to go bad...I hate to throw away things too :)

  19. My grandma hated it when I took some of her strawberries in the fridge for blending. But when she tasted it, she gave me all of the strawberries. LOL, seriously! Strawberries have anti-carcinogenic properties because of the combination of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents found in them. This is clearly the best tag team against the onset of many different forms of cancer. You should tell that to your grandparents also. :)
