Even without the whipped cream garnish this milkshake-like drink recipe turns out heavenly with its frothy, creamy base that is strawberry fruity delicious without being over the top sweet. Boysenberry syrup gives the Oh Boy! Berries & Cream drink a hint of sweet with layer of lush flavor it needs for beauty, color and richness. When strawberries are not in seasons and the fruit lends itself to a little more tart than sweet, add a smidge more boysenberry syrup to dial up the flavor and keep this creamy berrylicious drink an ‘Oh Boy!’ treat year round.

Be sure to check out the amended recipe below for the blender version with ice cream. It makes a creamy milkshake version that is out of this world delicious!

      I know what you mean Kim. Fresh strawberries are available here pretty much year round, but the always look bigger, brighter and fresher when they are in season close to home.
