This Strawberry cheesecake smoothie only contains 3 ingredients and tastes like cheesecake! The secret ingredient to getting this smoothie to taste like cheesecake is by using instant pudding mix. I used frozen strawberries but below you will find many different flavor combination ideas for this.
Other Cheesecake Smoothie Ideas
Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie: Combine 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk, 1 cup of frozen cherries and 2 tsp of cheesecake pudding
Raspberry Cheesecake Smoothie: Combine 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup of frozen raspberries, and 2 tsp of cheesecake pudding mix
Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie: Combine 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, and 2 tsp of cheesecake pudding mix
Tropical Cheesecake Smoothie: Combine 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup of frozen mixed tropical fruit, and 2 tsp of cheesecake pudding mix.
How to make Cheesecake Smoothie:
Just combine the milk, strawberries, and dry instant pudding mix into a blender and let the blender do the rest of the work! The blender I like to use is this one.
Milk Substitute Options
I used unsweetened almond milk for this but if you have allergies to almonds there are many different kinds of milk substitutes out there for that. Cashew milk, Soy Milk, and regular milk would work great for this smoothie. Chocolate unsweetened almond milk would be even better because then you’d have a Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie. 🙂
Do blended fruits count on WW?
Oh, where to begin with this… This is one rule on WW that no one really follows. There are some people that actually decided to count the blended fruit in a smoothie and some that don’t. A rule is a rule and WWs counts blended fruits because you drink blended fruit faster than you would chewing just a piece of fruit. However, there is one rule to smoothies that I’ve been reading on Facebook and that is if you make a smoothie bowl and eat it with a spoon it is like eating applesauce for 1 smart point. This was in a group I follow on FB. On WW website it says nothing about that and it is kind of hard to believe what some people have to say online. I really wish WW would update their link to the blended fruit and smoothies rule in regards to all the questions people ask about this. Let me know what your thoughts are on this rule in the comments below.
Can I use Sugar-Free Pudding Mix?
Yes, you can use sugar-free pudding mix. In the future whenever I have a recipe that requires instant pudding mix I will leave this option out there. I do not like sugar-free pudding mix at all because it has a weird after taste and sugar-free foods do not agree with my stomach.
