Raw Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie

Raw Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie

Description

You have certainly lucked out now that you’ve stumbled upon this scrumptious lemon cheesecake smoothie recipe by Tess Masters! It is thick, rich, and can even be turned into a pie filling by adding soaked chia seeds to further condense the texture. It is creamy, vanilla lemon bliss in a glass! Tess says, “this raw vegan lemon smoothie tastes just like a melted cheesecake in a glass! You will never guess this is dairy free. It is smooth, creamy, rich, and decadent. This recipe yields one 8-ounce glass. But I like to serve it in shot glasses for dessert and share it with friends.”
