Apple Cheesecake Smoothie

As promised last week, after I shared the recipe to my Drinkable Apple Crumble Smoothie, I finally took the time to take a couple of pictures of my second apple smoothie creation, a Drinkable Apple Cheesecake, this time.

While pretty similar in taste, I find this one has a lot more “depth” to it. Obviously, it’s got more of a cheesy taste to it, and I find that the saltiness of the cottage cheese really brings out the sweetness of the apples.

So very yum! Oh, just in case you haven’t figured out by now, I’m a big fan of the sweet and salty thing. ;)

Of course, I always make my apple smoothies  using good, home made chunky applesauce. It tastes so much better and has such a pretty colour, too!

Now, if I had to choose a favorite among all the smoothies that I have created so far, including those that I have posted and those that I haven’t, I think that this one would come out victorious.

Mind you, the More Power Gingerbread is pretty darn good too!

I could have either one of them every day for the rest of the year, and I don’t think I’d ever get fed up.

I think I’m a bit of a smoothie junkie!

    Sweet, dripping apple gold in a glass! That’s what this is :) Cottage cheese and apples are a great snack, and I can only imagine that this smoothie tastes divine! Brilliant photos too – I could reach through the computer and take a sip!!

      Thanks Nora, you’re just so sweet, as always! Just like honey. Pure gold, and sweet! ;)
      Now you had me wondering about using a raw apple in a smoothie. I’ve never tried that, but I get the feeling that I will very soon! :)
      And thanks for yet another inspiration!

    Oh my word. I am a veteran smoothie-maker (been drinking them for years!) but this takes the cake. I can’t believe that there is no added sugar in this . . .it tastes so good! This is the first recipe of yours that I’ve made–I can’t wait to try more!

    • says

      WOW, thanks so much for that, Mary! I really appreciate your taking the time to leave such awesome feedback. Real happy to hear that you liked the smoothie that much! Definitely try some of my other smoothie recipes then, I get the feeling that you will find at least one or two more that are to your liking! ;) Can’t wait to hear what you think of the other recipes you try. Hope you like them all as much as you did this one! :)

      Again, thanks for the kind words. You are simply awesome! :)

    Hi, all! I’m just beginning to enjoy the world of smoothies & juicing. Apple smoothie is one of my favorites; will try this one soon.

    ??? – so many recipes call for egg whites. Any thoughts of what to do with all those left over yolks (that “might” still not be too unhealthy)? Thanks!

    • says

      I used to buy egg whites in a carton, Rita, so I didn’t get stuck with tons of [back then] unwanted egg yolks.

      I’ve since wizened up and pretty much always use whole eggs, but when I’m lucky enough to have a few spare yolks lying around, I put them in my coffee! ;) Primal Egg Coffee isn’t a bad way at all to start your day, if you ask me! :)

      Or, I’ll add an extra yolk to my morning scramble…

      Or add them to my mayonnaise, even!

      Hope this helps! :)

        Wow. Seriously…in coffee? Friends make fun of me for all the odd things I’ve tried in my coffee. Looks fun; I’ll give it a try.

        I’m still a little squeamish about eating raw eggs. Any thoughts to help me get over it?

        To quote one of my readers, Salixisme:

        “Raw egg is not harmful for normal, healthy people. Really, it is only the sick, people with immune system disorders, the elderly, the very young and pregnant women who need to avoid raw eggs.

        And as long as you are eating eggs from healthy hens (especially if they are pastured/really free-range), you are not likely to get sick from eating them.

        Back when Salmonella first came to be an issue (ummm 20 years ago I recon), I was at university. My microbiology professor calculated that you could eat a raw egg every day of your life and still not get sick….”

        Plus, if you do use the yolks in coffee, the heat of the coffee alone will be enough to cook them! ;)
