This recipe — adapted from Thoroughly Modern Milkshakes, by Adam Ried — tastes exactly like drinking lemon cheesecake.


  1. ½ cup cold whole or low-fat buttermilk
  2. 2 tsp. honey
  3. 2 scoops (6 ounces) vanilla ice cream, softened until melty at the edges
  4. 2 scoops (6 ounces) lemon sorbet, softened until melty at the edges
  5. 2 chilled glasses


  1. Place the buttermilk and honey in a blender and blend until well mixed, about 15 seconds. Add the ice cream and sorbet and pulse to break up, stirring with a spatula as necessary, then blend until smooth, 30 to 90 seconds. Pour into the chilled glasses and serve immediately.
