Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie
Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie is a sweet and creamy breakfast or snack tastes like dessert. Adding cream cheese to a basic blueberry smoothie adds that perfect creaminess and tangy flavor you love about cheesecake. But instead of a rich treat, this is something you can have every day. Plus, by making it with Greek yogurt, you add protein and probiotics. I’m sure you’ll agree this Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie recipe is one of the best blueberry smoothie recipes you’ve ever made.
Disclosure: This recipe was developed through a sponsored partnership with Digestive Advantage. As always, all opinions are my own.
Speaking of probiotics, you guys, I eat a lot of yogurt. We’re talking a smoothie or two a day. Then sometimes a salad with Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing or one of my other salad dressing recipes made with Greek yogurt. Then some cups of yogurt or plain yogurt with fruit as snacks.
So. Much. Yogurt.
I have a bit of a history of a sensitive tummy, so I figure it can’t hurt to get in all the probiotics I can. These good bacteria do a great job helping to maintain the community of good bacteria in my digestive system. And not only do they help support digestive health, but they can also have immune system and other health benefits.
But do you know what I learned? I’m going to need an awful lot of blueberry cheesecake smoothies…
How can I get more probiotics?
Yes, you can definitely get probiotics from the foods you eat in your regular diet. Foods like yogurt and cereal are common sources of probiotics for many people.
But here’s the thing. Not all those probiotics are going to survive the journey through the acid in your stomach for you to get the full benefit of lessening digestive upset and helping your body absorb more vitamins and minerals.
That’s where Digestive Advantage comes in. There are lots of probiotic supplements out there that may have billions of bacteria, but many don’t survive stomach acid. Digestive Advantage probiotics have a natural protein shell that survives stomach acid 100X better than leading probiotics and yogurt. In fact, Two gummies survive better than 8+ cups of the leading brands of yogurt, based on probiotic survivability testing vs leading yogurt brands. *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Join me in taking the Digestive Advantage Challenge. I’ll be on Instagram Stories sharing my experience with trying to eat those eight yogurts in one day. Let’s see if it’s something that even I can do with as much yogurt as I already eat.
Or will I be happy to get back to my normal diet and just add a couple Digestive Advantage gummies to my daily routine?
I think you can guess the answer, and I think you’ll be convinced to try Digestive Advantage yourself.
How do you make a blueberry cheesecake smoothie with yogurt?
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.
- You can start by putting a handful or two of spinach into your blender jar. This is optional if you want a little extra boost of vitamins and fiber.
- Add a container of plain or vanilla Greek yogurt. If you use plain, you might want to add a bit of honey or other sweetener and a tiny splash of vanilla extract.
- Pour in almond milk or regular milk, then add your cream cheese.
- Don’t forget the frozen blueberries.
- Finally, you have the option of adding a few ice cubes, depending on how thick or smooth you like your smoothie.
- Blend until smooth.
Pour it 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 for a lighter version of a blueberry cheesecake milkshake.
Then you are on your way to getting your daily dose of probiotics.
But you only have two hands, so carrying your smoothie and another half dozen or so containers of yogurt just isn’t convenient. So don’t forget to grab two Digestive Advantage gummies to make it easier to get your probiotics!
