Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

I was cruising through recipes on fitness websites and stumbled across this one. I am not a big fan of smoothies or shakes, but I thought I'd try it out anyway. I mean, it did have cheesecake in the name! It turns out, it was delicious! A perfect strawberry delight for a summer afternoon.
Here's what you need:
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup Lowfat Cottage Cheese
5-6 spoonfuls of sugar (original recipe calls for 6-8 packets of Splenda. I'm not into artificial sweeteners so I used spoonfuls of sugar)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla or Almond Extract
2 cups Frozen Strawberries

Start out by...

Adding milk, cottage cheese, sugar and extract to the blender. Blend until smooth.

Add frozen strawberries a few at a time. Keep blending until smooth.

Pour into glasses and enjoy! Its healthy and delicious too! Check out the nutritional info:
