Fresh Strawberry Balsamic Drizzle Milkshakes

This rich and decadent dessert takes only minutes to make with fresh summer strawberries and a sweet balsamic reduction.

Yield: serves 1



  • 1 cup reduced-fat vanilla ice cream (or choice of vanilla frozen treat)
  • 1 cup, or 8 large, strawberries
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. light brown sugar




  1. Wash and trim the strawberries.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the vinegar and sugar. Stir just a minute or two, until the sugar has melted and a syrup has formed.
  3. Place the strawberries in a blender with the milk and scoop of ice cream. Blend on high until well combined.
  4. Pour in to a glass and drizzle the top with the syrup. Enjoy!!
