Healthy Cheesecake Smoothie

so this.

Cheesecake Smoothie (12 of 12)

It’s far better looking than the fruit leather that has been in my oven for 4 hours and is still complete mush.  And who decides to make a recipe in the summer that requires the oven to be on for 7 hours?  I think I’m making poor choices because I’m still a little delirious from save the date addressing.

I told myself I wasn’t allowed to begin looking at possible wedding invitations until after I had mailed out save the dates.  Gahh save the dates took four-ev-errr.  I kept delaying sending them out…not in a I’m-not-sure-about-this-whole-wedding-thing kinda way but in a I’m-sure-I’m-forgetting-someone kinda way.  But now since they’re in the mail, it’s now totally fair game to start spending hours looking up possible wedding invitation.  Wait, let’s call it “researching” wedding invitations.  Yes, that sounds more official and like a totally acceptable way to spend my time.

And this smoothie it also far better looking than that one guy that’s left on The Bachelor that looks like he’s thirteen.  Not that I’m one to talk because when signing for a package the other day the UPS man told me I looked like I was still in high school.  Never wearning that outfit again.

But anyways, back to The Bachelor…how you gonna send home Juan Pablo? And then send home the guy that looks like Mike “The Situation.”  I only ever watch the last 15 minutes of The Bachelor so I’m basing my opinions of the men on appearance alone.  I think that makes me shallower than all of them combined.

So I’ve added something new to my Summer Bucket List.  Specifically, donuts ice cream.  Or maybe I’ll just recreate my own.  And maybe for once I’ll make an “ice cream” recipe that doesn’t involve greek yogurt.  That’d be quite revolutionary for me.  Not that I don’t love me some greek yogurt, but a little change is good.  Like maybe I could make some other changes like order something other than a chicken bowl with pinto beans, pico, corn salsa and lettuce at Chipotle.  Haha..not.  Let’s not get crazy.

So when I made this here healthy cheesecake smoothie I spent precisely 578493 minutes trying to decide whether to call it a smoothie or a milkshake.  Calling it a smoothie sounded weirder so I went with that.  When I put pineapples in my cookies I thought that was little weird.  Well, actually I didn’t think that was weird but Andrew did.  Haters gonna hate.

    Well that recipe was much less complicated than I was expecting. Haha. It looks so elegant and complicated but I love the super easy ingredient list.

    I can’t believe someone told you that you looked like you were still in high school. How does that even come up in a conversation with a mail man? Yesterday while I was taking support calls for my internship I had a man call in and say that I sounded too young, didn’t know what I was doing, and promptly hung up. We were on the phone for a total of 30 seconds and I had only asked him his name so far… I guess I said that the wrong way? Lol. At least they most of the time the customers are super nice.

    And I’m in love with your pink straws! They really make the pictures *pop* :)

      I’m ALL about super easy ingredient lists. And how can someone know how young you are by like 6 words?! Ridiculous.

      I’m loving the straws too. I got them from Sur la Table and they were kind of pricey but I hear they also have them at Hobby Lobby for cheaper:)

    HOLY MOLY these look fantastic. And no, it’s not weird that you’re calling it a smoothie…cuz hey, it’s healthy!

    Kylie, I just about FAINTED when I saw the title of your recipe. You’re really creative and talented to come up with such a fun smoothie! And your photos are so adorable and classy at the same time!

    • Kylie says

      Amy! Ohmygoodness thanks for the sweetest comment;) I had so much fun taking these pictures. I need to invest in fun props, like these straws, more often:)

      • says

        You’re welcome Kylie! I’m right there with you; I’d love to have more props! But, uhh, I never seem to have the time (or money!) to go shopping. Where have you found some of your favorites?

      • Kylie says

        Quite a few of my plates/bowl have actually come from garage sale. Those old ladies have really cute stuff!!!

    Uh yeah those photos are pretty darn gorg. Like really! Those straws are used to great effect! So happyyy just got some Chobani and I’ve been in such a milkshake mood lately–this sounds FANTASTIC.

    And um omg totally adding Eatsie Boys to my summer bucket list as well. I was just complaining to Erik that Houston doesn’t have any good ice cream places (after returning from a visit home to Bi-Rite. Ugh. So good.) But I’ve never tried Fat Cat Creamery! Aren’t they supposed to open a storefront soon? !!!

    • Kylie says

      I’ve never even heard of Fat Cat Creamery?! Andrew would freak out for that Milk Chocolate Stout!!!! I’m adding them to my summer to-do’s!

    Hello! I just found your wonderful blog a few days ago, and I’m so glad I did. Your recipes are simple, healthy, and look downright delicious. I already made your Banana Pudding for Breakfast, and loved every bite. I’m planning on making this smoothie for dessert, but with a container of coconut milk raspberry Greek yogurt instead! Keep the recipes coming! :D

    • Kylie says

      Hey Melanie! So glad you found the blog:) and that you liked the banana pudding recipe! I’ll be sure to keep the recipe coming…so many recipe, so little time!
