“Skinny” Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

Muhaha!


This is exactly what I was thinking as Eric and I sat in silent for like 10 minutes slurping down these *skinny* strawberry cheesecake milkshakes.

No I take that back. I was laughing hysterically on the inside.

A.) Because these are *skinny* food and Eric hates when I give him *skinny* anything (except he secretly is obsessed with MY Skinny Cow Mmmmocha Truffle Ice Cream Bars and totally tries to “sneak” them)

AND

2.) He hates almond milk and cottage cheese. (Oh yeah. Those are the “secret” ingredients in this *skinny* milkshake).

I’ll be honest I was a bit skeptical too. I mean seriously? Drinking cottage cheese? But it totally works. The cottage cheese gives this just enough tang, richness and thickness that you think there is real cheesecake in there.

I mean heck, if Eric was fooled (heeheehee) then I am sure anyone will be! (BTW Eric still doesn't know those secret ingredients to that magical shake, I guess until now!)
