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.
