I love making smoothies. A few months ago a purchased the coveted Vitamix and I’ve been making various smoothies since. Don’t have a Vitamix? Don’t worry…any blender will do the trick. This simple smoothie is not only delicious but it’s raw, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. The best part it tastes like cheesecake.
This smoothie tastes just like the real thing, but it is lower in fat and easier to digest. Perfect if you want to enjoy sweet treats without feeling guilty or bloated afterwards!
Blueberry “Cheesecake” Smoothie
1 ½ cup of almond milk
1 cup of blueberries, fresh or frozen
2 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons of cashews (optional, for a true ‘cheesecake’ flavor)
3 small dates, pitted and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon local raw honey (optional)
Combine almond milk, blueberries, banana, cashews, dates and honey in a blender. Blend until smooth.
This Blueberry ‘Cheesecake’ Smoothie will stay fresh for at least two days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Not a fan of blueberries? Replace them with any berry you like such as strawberries, raspberries or blackberries.
Want to pack a punch and make this a protein shake? Add 1 scoop of protein powder. Drink this at least 30 minutes before your workout or enjoy it for lunch.
