And on a lighter note

I’ve decided to start posting my various shake/smoothie recipes. A while back I was on a diet that consisted primarily of low calorie-high protein shakes that came in only vanilla and chocolate flavors. As soon as I was allowed to incorporate fruit into my shakes, I delved into developing recipes with gusto. What follows is one of my favorites: it’s low-fat, low-calorie, and delicious treat that won’t go straight to your waistline.

Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie


  • 1 serving vanilla protein shake powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. sugar free, fat free cheesecake flavored pudding powder
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh
  • 1 cup ice

  1. Combine protein shake powder, water and pudding powder in a blender. Blend until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Add blueberries, and blend until mixed.
  3. Add ice and blend until smooth.
