Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake, layered

I had some cashew cream that I needed to use and thought it would work perfect in a cheesecake shake. Since it is National Blueberry Cheesecake Day I made a Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake!


1 scoop natural, unflavored, protein powder (used Vega One Natural)

1c almond milk, or non dairy milk of choice

1 tsp lemon zest

juice of half a lemon

1/4- 1/3c cashew cream (recipe)

1″ piece of vanilla bean

1/2c blueberries, fresh or frozen

Optional sweetness of choice, if desired

Ice (approx 1c or to desired consistency)


*If you are looking for a real cheesecake flavor you may want to add a drop of LorAnn Oils Cheesecake Flavor.


In a Vitamix or high-speed blender blend protein powder, milk, lemon juice, cashew cream, vanilla bean seeds, and ice until smooth.  Pour into a glass. Rinse blender and puree blueberries, layer on top of shake. Alternatively you can blend everything together if you do not want to layer it. Enjoy!
