Strawberry Pineapple Milkshake + Blendtec / Big Kitchen Giveaway

Frozen Treat Week | July 22 -28 | from KatiesCucina.com

 Today is the last day of our week-long frozen treat week event. I’m sad to see it end so soon. Today, I’m sharing a milkshake recipe. For some reason, I’ve been living under a large rock for the past 20-some years and have never thought to make creamy delicious milkshakes at home. I think part of this might be because I never owned a powerful blender until earlier this month. Now, I’m a blending machine–and I’ve made my share of milkshakes.

Today I’m sharing my recipe for a Strawberry Pineapple Milkshake. This isn’t your normal decadent or even boozy milkshake. It’s a fresh and flavorful summer milkshake, and all you need is a few ingredients! The day that I made these I text messaged my neighbor and asked if she was back on her diet. I’m trying to be a supportive friend. She exclaimed now and that she started tomorrow and I told her I would be right over. And this my friends is what I brought her… a delicious (and in my mind a semi-healthy) strawberry pineapple milkshake. So whether your not a fan of chocolate or just want a different and fruity milkshake, give this recipe for strawberry pineapple milkshake a try.
