Family Recipe Friday: Strawberry Lo-Cal Milk Shake

Note: I loved these when I was a kid, never knowing that they were low calorie.  No guarantee, but if grandma says so, it must be true!

Strawberry Lo-Cal Milk Shake

Bonnie Wright  discovered this quick and refreshing strawberry milkshake recipe.   It's low-calorie if you use artificial sweetner.   When the kids were involved in baseball, we would make one before a game to hold them over until after the game when we would have supper.   We enjoy them in the winter as well and if you use frozen strawberries, they are thick.  

This low calorie milkshake is great made with fresh or frozen strawberries.  

    1 cup 2% milk                                                  
    1 cup strawberries                                             
    1 tablespoon artificial sweetener *  
    1 cup crushed ice           
Put all ingredients blender and blend.   * I use 1/4 cup sugar instead of sweetener.
