Sweet Treat

Indulge your sweet tooth with our decadent Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie! This flavorful and colorful drink is a healthy way to refuel and rehydrate after a workout, or can serve as a quick breakfast on the go. We especially love this smoothie because of the variety of textures it combines and the nutrients it offers. The graham crackers provide a mouth-satisfying crunch when paired with the decadent and creamy cottage cheese in this recipe. Plus, the protein found in cottage cheese and the rich nutrients in blueberries make this smoothie a guilt-free treat!

Nutrient Booster: Blueberries

Blueberries may be tiny in size, but each serving is big on nutrition. Not only does this natural super food add delicious flavor and color to our recipe, but it also adds an abundance of nutritional properties! Blueberries are an excellent source of fiber, containing 6.2 grams per 1 cup serving. A diet filled with fiber-rich foods is important for healthy digestion and can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Blueberries are also extremely high in antioxidants, which help the body fight off free radicals and keep us healthy.

Substitutions + Perfect Pairs

If you have a gluten sensitivity, simply replace the graham crackers listed in this recipe with a gluten-free version. Almond, soy, whole or any other type of milk can be substituted as well. Please note that the nutrient analysis will change as you modify different ingredients from our original.

Looking to pair this delicious smoothie with a healthy breakfast or snack? We think our Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie will taste great along-side our Egg and Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Bites, our Almond Granola Cupsor even paired with a savory snack, such as our Hempy Guacamole. No matter how you choose to enjoy this drink, you may find that you can’t resist reserving a few blueberries to pop in your mouth as the blender prepares your nutritious treat!
