Caramel Banana Cheesecake Smoothie | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark #15MinuteSuppers

Another long day at work means a refreshing and satisfying after work treat. My kids get after school snacks, so why can’t I get an after work snack?

And I’ll get it done in less than 15 minutes so I can get dinner going for everyone too.

I like smoothies because you can create almost anything. It tastes like a meal and fills you up like a meal.

Especially this Caramel Banana Cheesecake Smoothie. It’s full of Potassium rich bananas, protein filled low fat cottage cheese, probiotic packed low fat organic vanilla yogurt and fiber full oats. With little bits of other goodies like sweet caramel, spiced cinnamon and delicious vanilla. Not to mention a sprinkling of shortbread cookie.

Yea, that’s a meal.

    Looks delicious, I thought it was like a milkshake from the picture, but I love that is made with yogurt and cottage cheese, not ice cream. My kids would love this!

      Ever since I made this shake Anne, I’ve been having it as a daily snack using half a scoop of chocolate slim fast powder and omitting the caramel and Truvia. Chocolate guilt free heaven!
