Healthylicious Strawberry cheesecake milkshake – Valentine day special

February is a month of celebration for us. First of all we are celebrating our 2nd Wedding anniversary very soon  and secondly everyone’s favorite “The Valentine’s day” is coming up!

Any celebration is incomplete without sweet treats, right? But this year I am going to celebrate it differently by making it HEALTHIER. Remember one of my resolutions?? Still sticking to it..hehe..because I am not ready to do few more hours of extra workout? nah!

But, I promise not to compromise on taste while making it healthier :) “Healthylicious” is the mantra!

Starting with this delicious and HEALTHY  Strawberry cheesecake milkshake. Last summer I tried this recipe from Missinthekitchen and oh boy! It was delish and addictive that I started to drink it for lunch/late night snack or even in breakfast sometimes. Do I need to mention that how much weight did I gain?? Shhhh…it was still damn good!

But I tried to make a Healthier version without sugar, full fat cream cheese and ice cream! Yup and still it tastes Delicioussss :)
