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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Of course, I always make my apple smoothiesย  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!
