Cheesecake Shake

Who doesn't love cheesecake? I certainly do. But there never seems to be a good time to eat it. It's too rich for the morning. It's too heavy for afternoon tea - an appetite for dinner killer. And it's too rich and heavy to follow most meals.

So I get my cheesecake fix through this drink. It's ligher on the stomach and lighter on the guilt as its yoghurt based. Yes, there is a bit of cream but not much, and it can be replaced with milk with no reall ill effects. Most importantly, it is really delicious. I prefer it with lime, but lemon is also good.

Blend 125 gm of plain yoghurt with 2 tbspn of cream or milk, 2 tbspn of caster sugar, 2 tbspn of lemon or lime juice (or to taste), 1/2 tspn of vanilla extract and 6 ice cubes. Pour into one big or two small glasses.
