Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

The cool thing about this week's Top Secret Recipe is that many of the ingredients come in a kit designed for making strawberry cheesecake. Find Jell-O No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake mix near the puddings in your supermarket and you have half of the ingredients locked up. Inside the box are three separate packets: Strawberries, the cheesecake mix for flavoring and graham crackers crumbs to sprinkle over the top of your shake as they do at the restaurant. To complete your clone you'll just need some vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk and a little whipped cream. The recipe below makes two regular size shakes, but you can make another two drinks with the remaining strawberries that come in the mix. If you thaw out some frozen, sweetened strawberries (those syrupy strawberries that come in a box), you can make as many as 8 more shake clones with the remaining cheesecake mix powder and graham cracker crumbs.

1 cup milk
3 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup strawberries and syrup (from Jello-O No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake kit)
3 tablespoons cheesecake mix powder (from cheesecake kit)
On top - canned whipped cream
2 teaspoons graham cracker crumbs (from cheesecake kit)

Combine milk, ice cream, strawberries and cheesecake mix in a blender and mix on high speed until smooth. Pour into two 12-ounce glasses.

Garnish the top with a squirt of whipped cream from a can and about a teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs from the cheesecake kit. Serve each shake with a straw. (

Makes 2 regular size drinks.
