Thank you to everyone who has sacrificed for our freedoms this Memorial Day.
Last week, my husband and I both saw an article in the paper about milkshakes, and the same recipe caught our eyes: raspberry key lime cheesecake shakes. We knew we had to try that one! So one night after the kids went to bed, we gathered the ingredients (kind of) and got to work.
Raspberry Key Lime Cheesecake Shakes
In our variation, we didn't have fresh raspberries available as readily (or maybe cheaply) as frozen ones, so we substituted. That (or maybe the original recipe?) made the milkshake very thick--almost too thick--so I think we'd recommend adding some milk if you're not looking to get a hernia from trying to drink this through a regular straw.
Also, a chunk of cream cheese and a splash of lime juice do not a cheese cake or key lime pie make. Our first taste of the milkshakes were flat-out not sweet. No, not "not sweet enough"--not sweet at all. We added some xylitol, but we'd recommend adding sugar or the sweetener of your preference before blending.
What are you having for dessert for Memorial Day?
