Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie

Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

This was another one of those “quick I need some calories in me before I rush out the door” kinda breakfasts … I’ve got cherries, how about a cherry cheesecake smoothie? I started rummaging through my cupboards, looking for stray graham crackers. I found 1 1/2 crackers in an opened pack, and nothing more. Well, that’ll have to do.  (Later, when I had more time to search, I found two full unopened boxes.)

A little yogurt, a little cream cheese, a couple graham crackers, a bit of vanilla and cinnamon … and some pretty sweet cherries. Oh yes! The perfect dessert smoothie … and it’s even pretty healthy, despite the cream cheese.

  2. YUM! We enjoy smoothies several times a week at our house. I’ve added oatmeal, and flax seed, but adding graham crackers is a new idea I must try soon. Thanks for sharing this.
