While this recipe blends into a milkshake that is just as smooth and creamy as you would expect, it has one big secret to keeping the calorie count low. It doesn’t actually contain any ice cream! While that may have you turning the page, we promise that blending frozen strawberries into vanilla-scented milk creates the exact texture and flavor you love in a milkshake.
- 1 cup frozen whole strawberries
- ⅔ cup 2% milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place all the ingredients in a blender, and pulse 8–10 times to break down the frozen strawberries.
- Blend for 1 minute, until milkshake is completely smooth. Serve immediately.
HELPFUL TIP: Top these with 2 tablespoons of canned whipped cream for an additional 15–20 calories, depending on the brand. We prefer Land-OLakes brand “whipped heavy cream” that does not contain corn syrup.
