My New Year Resolution was to bake a cheesecake this year.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cheesecakes. I really do… but I have never baked one on my own. The thing is that I really like to bake or cook from scratch and to make a cheesecake from scratch means to make graham crackers or whatever crackers from scratch as well. And I feel I am to lazy for that. In addition I do not have the right baking dish… and there is always something I find in order to not to make it… .
I made a cheesecakes bars this year but I feel like that doesn’t count. They were delicious, though 🙂
So, every time when we go grocery shopping I buy a cream cheese. Every single week I tell myself that I AM GOING TO make a cheesecake this week.
Every single week I end up making a smoothie with it instead.
The first time I made it I wasn’t sure about the texture and the taste but after a few changes I really like it. It’s not the healthiest smoothie ever but once for a while it’s good to spoil ones self.
6 big (or 12 small) cubes frozen milk,*
6 small cubes frozen vanilla yogurt,
1/3 cup strawberry yogurt,
1 cup strawberries, frozen
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup flax seeds,
2 Tbsp honey,
* this smoothies is thick. It has a consistency of very soft ice cream. If you want it to be less thick you can substitute the frozen milk with not frozen.
Put all the ingredients in blender. Blend until really smooth. The longer it blends the more of the cream cheese texture disappears.
Three things I love to start my day with:

Have a good one, my friends!
