If you’re looking for another option on the smoothie-making front you might want to try my Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie, seriously. It’s so smooth and refreshing it’s ALMOST like eating a tiny piece of cherry cheesecake.

Frozen cherries meet graham cracker crust and tangy yogurt for a delicious cheesecake taste with less of the fat and calories of real cheesecake. It’s our new favorite; I bet it could be yours too.

Cherry Smoothie

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. That’s common in Alaska where we’re sent unripe berries to ripen on the way up.

Stumped and totally out of strawberries I turned to cherries in hopes of having better luck. Cherries are one of my favorite summertime treats. Grown in the Northwest, so they arrive fresh and practically perfect!

The first one out of the Vitamix was a HIT with kids. My husband came home later and was a doubter when I told him how much it tasted like cherry cheesecake. I made another batch, and he agreed with me that they were in fact as good as I’d said.

What do You need to make a cherry cheesecake smoothie?

  • yogurt
  • cherries
  • milk-use ANY kind you like or prefer!
  • sugar-the amount depends on how ripe your cherries are and how sweet you like things
  • graham cracker crusts-add more or less to your smoothie, if you like a graham cracker crust definitely add more
  • a good blender

Wondering WHAT ELSE to do with Cherries??

Make this AMAZING Bing Cheery Pie Filling. Made without corn starch and yet it holds up in the oven. Remember though that you can’t can pie filling with flour in it, so it’s a make and use pie filling.

  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

Notes
