Sumptuous Strawberry Smoothie

I made this today as and afternoon treat for myself and an afterschool snack for Kyle.
It is super simple, yet sweet, creamy and full of taste as it is not watered down with ice cubes like most smoothies, but not as rich as a strawberry milkshake. It is simple enough to make as an after school treat and good enough to make for a special occasion.
  • 1 cup sliced frozen strawberries
  • 4 oz heavy cream1 cup vanilla yogurt, frozen
  • 1 12 oz can a Vernor's Diet Ginger Ale1
  • 8 oz. jar Marichino Cherries (optional for garnishment).
Pour the 4 oz of whipping cream into a blender and blend until it is creamy.
Run the cup of Yogurt under hot water in the faucet for a minute upside down, then remove lid and slide it into the blender and blend again for about 30 seconds.
Add the frozen sliced strawberries and blend again for 1 minute, then slowly pour in the Vernor's Diet Ginger Ale.
Pour into champagne glasses (we use plastic ones from the Dollar Store), garnish with a Marichino Cherry or two then serve.
