A thick, super creamy and filling Strawberry-Raspberry Oatmeal Cheesecake Smoothie that tastes exactly like a cheesecake….in a glass….for breakfast! With added protein BUT NO protein powders. This smoothie has been one of my weekly, sometimes daily, smoothies for breakfast. Especially when I’m pressed for time and have no time to make eggs, etc.
I started making cheesecake smoothies two years ago. Any excuse to have a dessert for breakfast, am I right? My love affair first started on my Instagram account two years ago with this White Chocolate Blackberry/Banana Cheesecake Smoothie, and this Thick Mixed Berry Cheesecake Smoothie following close behind (don’t laugh at my non-existent photography skills. Okay, laugh.) And this Coconut Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie is another favourite.
Usually, smoothies leave me starving, looking like something out of the The Walking Dead. But not these ones!
THIS smoothie is filled with oats, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese (hello protein), and so many frozen berries that act like ice withOUT diluting or watering down your smoothie. Keep frozen fruits in a zip-locked bag in your freezer, already sliced or hulled, ready for throwing into a blender. And you have a thick and refreshing smoothie in minutes.
