If you’re looking for another option on the smoothie making front you might want to try my Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie, seriously. Fruit meets graham cracker crust and tangy yogurt for a luscious cheesecake taste with less of the fat and calories of a true cheesecake. It’s our new favorite, I bet it could be yours too.

This smoothie started life in recipe development as a strawberry cheesecake smoothie but I kept having to add too much sugar to actually make it anywhere near sweet enough and that just turned me off. I guess the strawberries I was using just weren’t sweet or probably just weren’t ripe enough to use without a bunch of sugar. Stumped and totally out of strawberries I turned to cherries in hopes of having better luck. First one out of the Vitamix was a HIT with my sons but my husband, who came home later, was a doubter when I told him how much it actually tasted like cherry cheesecake. People he poopoo’d me! So I made another batch and he HAD to agree with me that they were in fact as good as I’d said. I made one more batch because we were hot, er no in the name of recipe testing, and we decided they were good to go.

Instructions
  1. pour the milk in the blender jar(that's what I'm calling it)
  2. add the cherries, yogurt and sugar
  3. blend until smooth, I like to keep going until there's almost no discernible cherry parts left, in other words really smooth
  4. once you've achieved your desired smoothie-ness open it up and have a taste does it need more sugar? or maybe more milk? don't be afraid to add a little more of either and blend again
  5. once you've added sugar and milk to your liking crumble the grahams on top and blend until they are incorporated
  6. serve in chilled glasses if desired
Recipe Notes

you may need to add more sugar if your fruit is less sweet you will need a food processor, vitamix, sturdy blender, blendtec or ninja to make this smoothie
