This sweet and creamy Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie tastes like cheesecake! Adding cream cheese gives it that perfect creaminess and tangy flavor of a favorite dessert. But instead of a rich treat, it is a healthy breakfast or snack with Greek yogurt for protein and probiotics. It is definitely one of the best blueberry smoothie recipes ever!
Blueberry Smoothie Recipe – Tastes Like Cheesecake!
My Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie has always been very popular. So I combined the flavors from that recipe with a few elements from my Blueberry Almond Butter Smoothie into one irresistibly creamy, dreamy concoction.
When you add a bit of cream cheese to your basic blueberry yogurt smoothie recipe, it takes it to another level of deliciousness. That creaminess and tangy flavor make this a perfect way to have a healthy dessert made with wholesome ingredients.
And with all the protein and probiotics, it is definitely a great recipe for a breakfast or snack when you are on the go. Indulge your sweet tooth and fuel your busy day with a dreamy Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie.
Healthy Benefits of a Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie
Speaking of probiotics, they do a great job helping to maintain the community of good bacteria in your digestive system. And not only do they help support digestive health, but they can also have other health benefits, including boosting your immune system.
That’s why I eat a lot of yogurt. Some fruit and yogurt at breakfast. A salad with Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing or one of my other salad dressing recipes made with Greek yogurt for lunch. And, of course, smoothies like this are a great way to sneak in even more!
And we can’t forget the protein and calcium from Greek yogurt and the antioxidants in the blueberries in the blueberry smoothie! They are also high in fiber, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K. And they are a heart-healthy fruit that may help improve blood pressure and cholesterol. (source)
- Almond milk: Or your preferred dairy or non-dairy milk.
- Spinach or other dark, leafy greens: This is optional, but I love adding baby spinach to sneak in addtional nutrients. You can use any greens, but I find baby spinach is so tender that it completely disappears and doesn’t add any flavor.
- Frozen blueberries: Buy them from a store or freeze fresh berries.
- Cream cheese: You can use regular or light. I never recommend fat free because it has a little bit of a weird flavor and texture.
- Greek yogurt: You can use a single-serve container or about 1/2 cup plus one Tablespoon. Vanilla adds nice sweetness, but you can also use plain. In that case, add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and a bit of honey or your sweetener of choice, to taste.
- Salt: Just a tiny pinch. It really enhances the sweet and tangy flavor.
- Ice cubes: Adjust to your desired consistency
How to Make a Blueberry Smoothie
Add the ingredients to your blender in the order listed and blend until smooth, adding more ice if needed or adjusting the sweetness.
Pour your blueberry yogurt smoothie in your favorite cup with a lid to take along as you run out the door to work or as you head off to run some errands. Or go crazy on a hot summer day and top it with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs (try using Gluten Free Graham Crackers) for a lighter version of a blueberry cheesecake milkshake.
I always recommend a high-powered blender like the Blendtec for the smoothest, most creamy smoothies. The Mini Wildside+ Jar is the perfect size for one or two smoothies. You can even use the “Smoothie” setting to have it gradually increase the speed to perfectly incorporate the liquids and frozen ingredients. Note, I do usually stop it a little before the cycle is over because I prefer an extra thick smoothie.
