Very Berry Cheesecake Smoothies

The following post is a sponsored collaboration with Cacique and Society Culinaria. All opinions are our own.

‘Tis the season for smoothies! August is probably the hottest month here in Chicago and sometimes a quick smoothie is all you want to beat the heat. Time to think beyond the typical smoothie! You can get as creative as you want and combine interesting flavors, like Guava and Carrot, Kale and Pineapple, or even replicate the flavors of your favorite dessert!

We loved the idea of creating a Cheesecake Smoothie as a healthier dessert option and as a way to use all the blueberries we got at the Logan Square Farmer’s market. All we needed was a good yogurt base and that’s when we decided on Cacique’s Strawberry flavored Yogurt Smoothie

With 8 grams of protein, Cacique Yogurt Smoothie has real fruit blended with the yogurt. It’s gluten free, has lots of probiotics and calcium. You can enjoy it on its own or make it extra special by blending in a couple of your favorite ingredients. It’s a perfect complement to a balanced diet! Visit the Cacique Website for recipe inspiration or follow the instructions below to enjoy our Very Berry Cheesecake Smoothie.

You may use any of the other Cacique smoothie flavors for this recipe: Strawberry-Banana, Mango, Guava or Piña Colada. Hope your summer is as smooth and sweet.
