Recipe: Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake

Blueberry Cheescake Protein Shake Protein Shakes are one of my favorite things to make. They are an easy, quick way to get a lot of nutrition, plus they can be eaten on the go. Can’t beat that! Even better, if made with carefully chosen ingredients, they can taste like a decadent dessert. Trust me when I say this Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake is every bit as delicious as a slice of cheesecake or a creamy milkshake. But it’s dairy-free with no added sugar. What it does have is a healthy dose of protein and we can all use some more of that! Plus it has lots of fiber, phytonutrients, and Vitamin C from the blueberries. Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake Out of all the protein shakes, I think this is my favorite to date. And I’ve tried lots of different flavor combinations for protein shakes- Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Avocado, Pina Colada, and Peach Pie. I’m not always a big fan of almond milk and I think it tastes terrible with cereal or in coffee. But for a protein shake, almond milk really works. It makes a more flavorful and creamier shake than using water and adds fewer calories than using milk, even skim.

The cheesecake pudding mix really thickens the shake up and gives it a milkshake quality, plus it totally makes it taste like cheesecake. A few graham cracker crumbs on top and you can fool yourself into believing you are indulging on a fabulously sinful dessert. Note: Even when I use fresh blueberries, I pop them in the freezer just long enough to freeze them. This way you can have a wonderfully cold and thick shake without having to add ice which too often ruins the texture for me, plus it can water the shake down.
