The Preparation

I had never used butter extract before and was a little hesitant to use it, especially more so in a drink recipe. The smell was quite strong and honestly made me feel a bit off thinking about drinking butter, even though it is obviously not actually butter. The smoothie itself was quite thick so I did add a bit more milk to thin it out, so do check the texture as you blend and adjust if needed.

The Final Product & Review

This recipe is the easiest to follow as it is one step and requires very few ingredients. I loved how creamy the smoothie ended up being as it verged almost to a milkshake consistency, with the lack of lots of extra calories and sugar. The butter flavor is quite strong in this and it did take me a few sips to kind of get used to the idea of it. The flavor is fairly close to the idea of a strawberry shortcake and I can't wait to try this setup with other fruit flavors to see what other cake like smoothies I can create.

Overall, I found it to be more like a treat and it was very delicious. I highly recommend giving it a try!

Keep in mind that every month all of you get to decide which recipe goes into the next Pinterest Test Kitchen, so keep an eye out for next month's poll! If you are new to this series, every month I post a poll with four recipe options from my various Pinterest recipe boards. After one week of voting, the recipe with the most votes will be tested and reviewed by the end of the month. This helps me try something new and put my Pinterest recipes to good use.
