This Whipped Banana Cream Cheesecake Shake is 100% indulgent without all the guilt. It’s high protein made with bananas and cottage cheese and no added sugar! Love this is the healthy way to eat Banana Cream Cheesecake.
Baby must really like cottage cheese because I’ve been eating cottage cheese any way I can get it– muffins first and now smoothies! Or maybe he just likes cheesecake? You know, that’s probably it because his dad definitely has a sweet tooth. I keep dreaming of cheesecake flavored things lately.
My ultimate cheesecake is the Banana Cream Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. OMG. I love all the whipped topping and the bananas they add to the side. It at least makes me feel a little healthy ;)
Here lately I’ve been adding cottage cheese to my smoothies. It’s so good and high protein without protein powder!! Yippee! I’ve tested strawberry, chocolate and now this Whipped Banana Cream Cheesecake Smoothie and they have all been ahhhhmazing!!
One interesting quality that I’ve found with these cheesecake smoothies is they keep well overnight or for a few hours at least. Most smoothies will separate and lose the thick texture, but the cheesecake seems to hold the smoothie together making this a good one to cap a mason jar lid on it and store it in the fridge for later– read: meal prep must!
I hope you guys enjoy this Whipped Banana Cream Smoothie as much as I do. A great way to cure that sweet tooth without any added sugar! (That is unless you dump a bunch of whipped topping on it, like me, but hey– it’s optional!)
