Crazy Cooking Challenge- Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Once again its time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge!


This month the challenge was to create a fruit smoothie. The only requirements were that the recipe must be a drink and must contain fruit. Easy enough, right?

My original plan was to make something with chocolate, banana & peanut butter. In my search for a recipe I saw this Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie over at Cupcakes and Kale Chips. Right then and there I knew this was the perfect smoothie for me.

To make this smoothie you will need strawberries, banana, cream cheese, vanilla yogurt, & milk.

Blend it all together and voila….

Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie.

This was sooooooo good. The cream cream cheese added a bit of a tang to the smoothie that I loved.

Feel free to get creative with this recipe. It would be awesome with raspberries or blueberries too.

And because I just cant resist the urge to make everything prettier, I garnished with some chocolate sprinkles, whipped cream and a strawberry.

It almost looks like a strawberry milk shake.

Here’s the recipe:

    I, too, made a strawberry cheesecake smoothie–I think if 3 of us made it, then it must be good! I love the addition of the chocolate sprinkles :)

  2. Tina @ MOMS CRAZY COOKING says:

    This was a popular smoothie, and I’ve never ever thought of using cream cheese! I must try! I have vowed to make smoothies once a day all summer long, breakfast or a dinner substitute on hot summer days and I can’t wait to try ALL of the Crazy Cooking Challenge recipes from this month. Thanks so much for participating.

      Thanks it was pretty good; I’ve made it a few times since minus the cool whip and sprinkles:( I love the extra flavor the cream cheese gives.
      Thanks so much for featuring it!
