Red Velvet Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Shake



I know, I know....Valentine's Day was yesterday, but I actually didn't get to celebrate because I was working, so it's okay for me to squeeze in one last Valentine's Day recipe. I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! Since I was working late last night,  J. and I are checking out a great local Italian restaurant tonight to celebrate Valentine's Day. If I get some awesome pictures of food from the restaurant I'll post them tomorrow with the blog. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone else who is celebrating a day late!



This recipe is also adapted from the Novice Chef, this was how she used up the scraps from her recipe for red velvet brownies, and I thought it was a great idea because I had a lot of scraps leftover and because I have trouble passing up a good milkshake. You can find her blog here.

Ingredients
-4-5 scoops vanilla frozen yogurt
-a  handful Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie Scraps (plus additional scraps for on top)
-2% milk to taste (it depends on how thick you like your shake)
-A drizzle of chocolate syrup (I put just a little bit into the bottom)

This recipe makes one large milkshake, but you can easily double or triple the recipe. I like to use frozen yogurt (I swear it tastes just like ice cream), but you can use any kind of ice cream if that's what you prefer.


Put all of the ingredients into the blender.
Or into the Magic Bullet if you have one also.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass, then enjoy.

This shake was really rich, but it was a good way to use the leftover scraps from the Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. The pink color was cute, but if I had additional red food coloring I would have put some drops into this to make it red also, I have a bad habit of using up all of the red food coloring I have in the pantry when I make a red velvet recipe, oops.

Have a great weekend!

  2. You had me at Red Velvet Cheesecake. This looks delicious. I have had some smoothies that I had to choke down. It's an evolving process.

    Thanks for sharing.
