"This is a great tangy twist on a milk shake. This is a hit with my tart-loving family. We have found that is is just a good without the small amount of cream cheese, after finding out we were out. My kids love the rimmed glasses, which are MUST when you make these."

"Delicious! Very refreshing and tangy. I added the juice of half a lemon. I think next time I will omit the cream cheese as I felt it didn't do anything for flavor or creaminess. But I would definitely make this again. Try it!"
