Why Not Make It a Cheesecake Smoothie?

Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Smoothies are a standard part of my daily menu, but I’ve been missing something.

Something wonderful.

You can turn any smoothie recipe into a cheesecake version by adding one thing.  Cottage cheese…which I ordinarily loath.

For example, your lunch today could be a Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie.

Just try it.  You will love.
