Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake

Here's the Dish

What could be better than enjoying a slice of fresh blueberry cheesecake than in a smooth and creamy shake packed with protein!?! This shake makes an excellent breakfast or snack, and is so refreshing on a hot sunny day! Enjoy!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 1-5 Minutes.


Put everything into a blender and blend until creamy consistency is reached! Top with a crushed graham cracker if desired!


1/2 cupFat free cottage cheese 1
1 scoopVanilla or plain protein powder 2
2-4 pktsStevia (or 1/4-1 tsp sweetener of choice)
5-10Ice cubes (Depending on how thick you like it, use less for a thinner consistency)
1/2-1 cupWater (Alter this according to desired consistency)
1/2 cupBlueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 tbs Sugar free instant cheesecake pudding mix OR 1 laughing cow wedge
Optional: 1/2 tsp xanthan gum 3, 1 graham cracker, crushed into crumbs

1 Cottage cheese may sound strange, but TRUST me… this is what makes the ‘MILKSHAKE’ consistency! Also, if you are sensitive to dairy, you can use tofu to get the same consistency!

2 I use Designer Whey Protein powder. It has 100 calories per scoop. I buy the vanilla flavor because it’s a good base to add whatever flavors you want to make. It is also all natural. You can buy it from Kroger, GNC, Trader Joe’s, Amazon, or

3 You can get xanthan gum from most grocery stores in the gluten free section! Just a pinch of it makes your shake so thick and creamy!

Silly question, I’m sure but would your shakes be able to be frozen in the Popsicle molds you use for your Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Pops. I’m looking for new protein packed popsicle recipes.

I make this pudding thick and savor each bite. This is so good I feel as though I am cheating and eating something I shouldn’t be.

I made this today. So yummy! I substituted the pudding/cheese for a Tbsp of weight watchers whipped cream cheese, about the same calories.

Made this shake this morning but with strawberries. It was not as flavorful as the blueberry. Do you have a recipe for a strawberry version? Or maybe cherry?

I made a strawberry one with NUTRILITE’s strawberry meal replacement shake powder and frozen strawberries – it was so delicious – didnt even need the stevia sweetener!

OMG this is decadent. I have been drinking shakes for over a yr now and they are tolerable. Tried this recipe and the peanut butter one and feel like I’m drinking a real shake. Love it. Please make more recipes.

Has anyone made this in advance? As in made the night before you’d have for breakfast? I leave for work at 5AM so anything I can get done the night before is helpful in the morning and this seems like a delicious breakfast smoothie!

I did! I made it the night before and put it in a shaker cup with the metal mixer ball inside, it still turned out great!

I made this but left out the sweetener and vanilla pudding mix (my diet has me avoiding anything artificial) and IT WAS AMAZING!!!! I used low fat cottage cheese because non-fat has added fillers; the fat is natural and helps you stay fuller longer. What a genius idea this protein shake is – I never would have thought to use cottage cheese – it really makes it so creamy and delicious! Great idea!

I was wondering if you could substitute Vanilla Greek Yogurt for the Cottage Cheese? Thanks!
