Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothies
“The big question now, though, was: Does it taste like a strawberry cheesecake? And, fellow followers of the fabulous Cheesecake….YES, YES IT DOES.”
6 ounces (3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1½ cups milk
⅓ cup sugar, divided
1½ teaspoons vanilla
7 graham crackers, divided
2 cups frozen whole strawberries, slightly thawed
Blend cream cheese, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar, vanilla and 6 crackers in blender until smooth.
Pour all but about ½ cup of the cream cheese mixture into liquid measuring cup.
Reserve for later use.
Add strawberries and remaining sugar to remaining cream cheese mixture in blender; blend
Pour into 4 glasses.
Pour reserved cream cheese mixture gently over strawberry mixture in glasses.
Crumble remaining cracker; sprinkle over smoothies.
We were confused if the recipe meant 7 full sheets of graham crackers as opposed to 7
individual, separated crackers, but we went with the full sheets. In doing so we realized this
must have been the right way because you could taste just the right amount of the crackers. The
other way you’d probably not be able to taste them much at all, especially if your berries have a
strong flavor like ours did.
There was only enough of the strawberry mixture for 3 small 8-ounce smoothies, so you might
need to double the recipe for more than three people or if they’ll be wanting a bigger smoothie.
Make sure to gently pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the strawberry mixture, or it will just
blend right into the strawberry part. Holding the pitcher of cheesecake mixture close to the
glass seemed to help.
