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.

O Boy! Berries & Cream Milkshake Recipe

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.
