I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Sometimes I sneak some not-that-“clean” food into my healthy-ish meals.
Because sometimes a gal just has to eat something that tastes like cheesecake but that doesn’t blow her macros through the roof. Am I right?
This Banana Cheesecake Protein Smoothie is a case in point. The sugar-free, fat-free cheesecake pudding mix in this recipe makes this smoothie thick, luscious and decadent … and that’s not a bad thing, in my book.
Try it! This was originally posted in 2011, but I updated it to make it even “cleaner” … except for the instant pudding mix. 🙂
Banana Cheesecake Protein Smoothie
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Sun Warrior brand)
1 tbsp sugar-free fat-free cheesecake pudding mix
1 cup coconut milk
1 medium frozen, sliced banana
small amount of water (if needed)
Place first four items in a high-speed blender and mix well. Add a little water if it’s too thick. Drink. Yum!
