Raspberry Cheesecake Shake (Trim Healthy Mama)


This morning I enjoyed a delicious shake for breakfast.
Trim Healthy Mama Shake
I found this recipe while going through my Facebook feed. Mercy one of the Trim Healthy Mama’s came up with this. I am not on the THM ‘diet’ but I do enjoy the simple low-carb recipes that I find.

What is in this incredibly good looking smoothie!

Raspberry Cheesecake Shake

1/2 cup cottage cheese or Greek Yogurt
2 TBS cream cheese
3 scoops stevia (like NOW, THM, etc. ) or your own sweetener to taste
1/2 tsp glucomannan or xanthan gum
1 cup water
1/2 cup frozen berries
1 cup ice cubes {optional} (the original recipe calls for a handful, I scoop some ice in a child size cup)
1 scoop of whey powder (I didn’t add this because I don’t have any and am trying to use less whey powder)


(FP use fat free cream cheese, 0% Greek yogurt and low fat cottage cheese.)

You can sub all the dairy with low or fat free but I prefer full fat because from what I’ve read it’s less processed. 

Here is the cup I use to add the optional ice.

I have been enjoying this shake for a week now. As you all may know I’m not big breakfast eater but I do love sipping on a shake.

You can make this an S or Fuel Pull. Like I mentioned I don’t care for low or non fat dairy products so mine are considered an S.
Enjoy!

  1. This looks really great! I bought everything I needed to make it and then decided to make the cheesecake for dessert today, but I will be getting more cream cheese to make this! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I'm not big on breakfast or shakes, but I do like cheesecake :) I think I will try this with some fresh blackberries. Yum!

  4. I appreciate this recipe, without protein powder. I am also trying to use less of it. I can tolerate it in baked goods, but in smoothies, I feel as if I am choking. I prefer less processed foods anyway. I look forward to trying this today. It looks really yummy!

  5. Just a heads-up, with cream cheese of any sort this is still an S - even Neufchatel is not low enough in fat for FP (needs to be 5g or less per meal). Take it out entirely and use 1-2% cottage cheese or nonfat Greek yogurt, and then you have an FP :)

    1. Thanks! I believe if you use non fat cream cheese, 0% Greek yogurt, and low fat cottage cheese it should make it a FP.

      Here is the stats I found on fat free cream cheese: https://www.caloriecount.com/calories-fat-free-cream-cheese-i1186

    2. I couldn't find the post on Facebook, I believe that's where I first saw the recipe but did find this one. It's posted on the THM board by Admin Stephanie: http://trimhealthymama.freeforums.net/thread/2722/raspberry-cheesecake-shake-mercy

      At the end of the post it says: (You could make this a Fuel Pull buy using fat free cream cheese but it is a nice creamy S using the 1/3 reduced fat or full fat cream cheese)
