Guys, I bought a Vitamix and I’m so damn excited about the amazing smoothies and shakes I can make so easily now! Like this Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Shake. Honestly it tastes like cheesecake in a glass and I am in love with it. You gotta try this one…
This recipe comes out on the thicker side of things, so once it’s blended, see how you like the texture and add more almond milk to the blender if you prefer something that’s easier to sip from a straw right away. I personally like using a spoon and straw combo, with lots of straw action happening as things get melty. I included a link below the recipe to some awesome wide metal straws (perfect for smoothies) as well as the cute little paper straws you see here. No need for the plastic kind, ya’ll.
Look at that creamy dreaminess! Don’t forget the whipped cream and crushed graham crackers for that full on dessert flavor.
Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Shake
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries (210 grams)
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (8 oz)
- 1/2 cup Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt (4 oz)
- 1 scoop Cellucor Vanilla Casein Protein powder (32 grams)
- 2 tbsp 1/3 Less Fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese (31 grams)
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Top with whipped cream and crushed graham crackers before serving, if desired.
I like to freeze my Greek yogurt into cubes using a silicone ice cube tray, but you don’t have to do this to get amazing results!
