Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

Cookbook Recipe #17

Bobby Flay is known for his burgers so it is kinda funny that I would choose to do a shake recipe out of his cookbook, but I LOVE shakes. Whenever we go for ice cream I almost always get a shake. One of my favorite shakes is from Coldstone....the Cheesecake Fantasy sundae made into a shake. So when I saw this shake recipe for a cheesecake shake I figured it would be a close bet. The recipe was originally for a blackberry shake, but I really like strawberry shakes so I decided to switch it up. This recipe was definitely the most prep work I have ever done for a shake, but the shake came out awesome. You have to make a fruit base and let it sit for a few hours to thicken up before you can make the actual shake. The fruit base is like a jam, so you can make any fruit that you want to mix in. The only thing is that you do a lot of work with not a lot of shake to go around. It was a great treat though!

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake
Adapted from Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries and Shakes

Fresh Fruit Base

1 pound fresh fruit
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons strawberry jam
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Hull and slice strawberries into quarters.

Put sliced strawberries, 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons jam in a saucepan and heat over medium high.

Mash strawberries with a potato masher and stir occasionally until the mixture thickens to a jam-like consistency, about 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Add the remaining tablespoon of sugar if needed.

Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.


1/3 cup fruit base
1/4 cup whole milk
3 ounces cream cheese
1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream

Mix fruit base, milk and cream cheese in blender. Then add ice cream and blend until smooth.
