CCC: Blueberry Cheesecake Milkshake

June is Fruit Smoothie/Shake month!

I had a little more trouble this month finding a good recipe from a blog. I had plenty from Kraft or Betty Crocker, etc. In fact, my first smoothie/shake was a Kraft recipe that I will be sharing next Wednesday. I was lucky to stumble upon Lauren's Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake right after my oopsie shake was made. Be still my heart! Anything cheesecake is just fabulous in my book!! And if you haven't heard of Lauren's Latest or you don't follow it, GO DO IT NOW!! Lauren is completely hilarious and she keeps it real :)

I also decided to switch up the recipe, ever so slightly. I had just discovered one of Ben & Jerry's limited edition flavors of ice cream...Blueberry Cheesecake. So I've been craving blueberry cheesecake! I will be trying Lauren's milkshake in its original form very soon, but for today - I made the blueberry version of it.
{Half of my inspiration}

I will be hopping around today - stumbling, pinning, tweeting, and FB-ing lots of entries :)
{To vote for my recipe: click on #26 below in the linky list}

What you need:
  • 1/2 to 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (Lauren used strawberries)
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • Whipped topping and more berries for garnish
  1. Puree all ingredients except the garnishes in a blender.
  2. Add milk to your desired consistency. 
  3. Top with whipped cream and blueberries.
Recipe adapted from Lauren's Latest
