   Most people have no idea how stressful being a teacher can be. While it is a very rewarding career in so many ways, shaping young minds and supervising them daily is a tremendous responsibility. When I get home at the end of the day, I often need to unwind and destress so I try to set the mood in my home that helps to make me feel more energized. After all, my day is not over when I get home as my role as mom goes into full effect at that time!

    My grandmother in Spain loves to make “batidos,” or shakes with different fruits that are full of vitamins to give you energy. Lately, I have been researching some of the different fruit combinations that can be used to make smoothies and shakes. I love to live my life with a lot of zest and passion so I immediately became enamored with raspberries in my shakes. Not only are they delicious and have a beautiful color, but they are so good for you because they contain antioxidants.


   Since I love making and enjoying yummy drinks, I have created a raspberry cheesecake float that has all the delicious ingredients that my grandmother uses along with a few new ones that I love now that I am an adult. To help give me the boost of energy I need in the afternoon, I use the bright and lively scent of Glade® Radiant Berries™ candles in my living room. In that very moment, I am focused on the bright scents that surround me and the delicious taste in my vibrant shake. I love heading to Target to buy them since they always have a wide selection of Glade® products for me to choose from.

Raspberry Cheesecake Float


1 12 – ounce package frozen unsweetened red raspberries, thawed
1 3 – ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
2 12 – ounce cans of vanilla cream soda

You can also include fresh raspberries if that is your preference.


  • Use a blender to mix the raspberries, cream cheese, almond extract, half the ice cream, and 1/2 cup of the vanilla cream soda. Blend until smooth.
  • Divide blended mixture among six tall 16-ounce chilled glasses. Add a scoop of the remaining ice cream to each shake.
  • Top each shake with leftover vanilla cream soda. Garnish top of shake with fresh raspberries.
  • Serve right away.


   At the end of my day, it always feels so good to live in the moment and enjoy becoming recharged in order to enjoy my life after work hours. Since Glade® is all about evoking emotions, when I use a Glade® product, I don’t just smell Glade®, I feel Glade®. It is the perfect accompaniment to my raspberry cheesecake float and floods all my senses with a vivid rush of boldness that leaves me feeling playful and bright even after teaching all day.

    Make sure you connect with Glade® on Facebook and Twitter to learn all about how to tap into that spark or jolt of energy in your life. Feel Bright. Feel Glade®.

  6. Oh my goodness how amazing does this sound! I could just imaging sitting down on a warm spring afternoon and enjoying one of these.

  7. At the moment I would not dare to try this delicious sounding drink–I love raspberries–but with all that has been going on with me and the prednisone they are throwing into the mix my blood sugar is off the roof and I am trying to get it back down!! I did not know that Glade had a raspberry scented air freshener–that would surely make me feel better!!!!!

  8. We try to keep the house bright with fresh flowers and season-appropriate colors. A bit of work, but it’s worth it.

  9. Sounds like a delicious float, I love raspberries as well! Glade candles smell so nice and they have scent for every season!

  10. Sounds soo yummy! And with all that scent wafting around too! 🙂

  21. Ann Bacciaglia says

    Glade candles are a great way to freshen up any space. I will have to try making Raspberry Cheesecake Floats this weekend.

  22. Sounds refreshing and delicious. The candle sounds pretty, too. My favorite smell, though, is the out-of-doors!

  23. It’s been awhile since we’ve been to Spain and on our next trip I’ll have to look for batidos! This looks delicious, wish I could have dairy!

  24. This sounds like the perfect summer dessert. Would love to make this for a get together.

  25. What a great way to unwind, both with treats and fragrance. I’ll have to taste this one!

  26. I love anything that is made of raspberry & this cheesecake looks absolutely delicious with those ingredients & sounds healthy as well. Glade sounds like a wonderful brand & I would love one such candle for my home!

  27. I really like sitting out on my porch or doing some gardening. Both of those always lighten up my life. I love that recipe. Perfect pairing of berries and cheesecake! What a delicious dessert. #client

  28. This looks absolutely amazing! I am going to have to try this soon! Oh wow!

  29. What??? Now that’s a treat. This would be perfect for summer get-togethers too. We like Glade also, it lasts longer than most other brands.

  33. Megan McCoig says

    Raspberries and cheesecake are my weaknesses, I love both so much, so this would be perfect for me!! Lovely 🙂

  34. Oh man this looks amazing! I will definitely have to make these this summer!

  35. Ohh, this looks so good! I’m always down for anything with fresh raspberries in it!

  36. I do find that a nice smell, like lavender or chamomile, can be relaxing. It’s so hard though to find non-toxic products. I just tend to stick with essential oils.

  37. Maryann D. says

    Glad makes terrific products. I would like the Radiant Berry scent too. The Raspberry Cheesecake Float sounds absolutely amazing to try!
