Crazy Cooking Challenge- Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Once again its time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge!

Photobucket

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:
