Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

My New Year Resolution was to bake a cheesecake this year.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cheesecakes. I really do… but I have never baked one on my own. The thing is that I really like to bake or cook from scratch and to make a cheesecake from scratch means to make graham crackers or whatever crackers from scratch as well. And I feel I am to lazy for that. In addition I do not have the right baking dish… and there is always something I find in order to not to make it… .

I made a cheesecakes bars this year but I feel like that doesn’t count. They were delicious, though ๐Ÿ™‚

So, every time when we go grocery shopping I buy a cream cheese. Every single week I tell myself that I AM GOING TO make a cheesecake this week.ย 

Every single week I end up making a smoothie with it instead.

The first time I made it I wasn’t sure about the texture and the taste but after a few changes I really like it. It’s not the healthiest smoothie ever but once for a while it’s good to spoil ones self.

Ingredients:

6 bigย (or 12 small) cubes frozen milk,*

6 small cubes frozen vanilla yogurt,

1/3 cup strawberry yogurt,

1 cup strawberries, frozen

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup flax seeds,

2 Tbsp honey,

* this smoothies is thick. It has a consistency of very soft ice cream. If you want it to be less thick you can substitute the frozen milk with not frozen.

Put all the ingredients in blender. Blend until really smooth. The longer it blends the more of the cream cheese texture disappears.

Three things I love to start my day with:

Coffee,ย 

smoothie,

browsing the web for new recipes

(in that order)

Have a good one, my friends!

  1. That’s not a bad way to start your day! I usually start it with a smoothie or yogurt too. Coffee comes later in the day for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ have a great day!

  2. I LOVE all your smoothie photos!!!! LOVE!!! So pretty and creative with the purple petunia. Now I want a smoothie. Never thought of freezing the milk into cubes. Thanks for such a fun post!

  3. That is such a great idea! Plus, I could cheat on my diet – I wouldn’t have cake, I would have a smoothie. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great pics too! Thank you so much for linking up to Food Photography!

  4. This smoothie sounds so delicious! Strawberries are so seasonal and fresh right now and I love the addition of the cream cheese. I hope you will not mind if I ‘borrow’ one of your photographs so I can feature your recipe on my Hearth and Soul post this week. I will give proper credit of course! I think this is such a delicious, wholesome treat – thank you for sharing it!

  5. This was one of the first recipes that I clicked on at Hearth and Soul. I love cheesecake and I make smoothies almost every day. I am very excited to give this a try (I’m also inspired to come up with a cheesecake that doesn’t require crackers!). I wanted to let you know that I featured your recipe over at Hearth and Soul on my blog today. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    1. Elsa, I was thinking about making a cheesecake without the cracker bottom as well. I found one that’s called brownie cheesecake and I made it yesterday. It’s a star in our house. I LOVE it and my husband LOVES it. It’s more like a brownie with a slight cheesecakey taste but with a few changes I think I can make it into a no-crackers-required real cheesecake ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will be posting the recipe real soon.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like what you see and read (not always in proper English, though). Feel free to leave a comment love and don't forget to check it back and keep the discussion going
