So thick you’ll need a straw and a long spoon to enjoy this frosty cherry-vanilla milkshake.


2 10-ounce bags frozen pitted Cherries (about 4 1-2 cups)
2 cups reduced-fat “light” vanilla Ice Cream
2 cups fat-free Milk
1 Vanilla bean, split lengthwise, or 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract


Place cherries, ice cream and milk in a blender.

With the tip of a sharp knife, scrape all the black paste from inside the vanilla bean into the blender (or add vanilla extract); blend until smooth. Stop and stir once or twice if necessary to completely blend.
