Your ultimate summer smoothie sensation, lemon cheesecake smoothie!

This smoothie is a protein packed sweet treat perfect for hot summer days.

The combination of ricotta, cream cheese and yogurt makes for a super smooth and creamy consistency, just like cheesecake batter. The fresh lemon juice and zest gives it a citrus twang that you just can’t say no to.

You can whip this up in no time for yourself or a group of friends, either way it’s sure to make you feel happy inside and out!

Wait, which protein do I choose?

Any of our protein range will suit this recipe - but in our testing, our proteins in Vanilla flavour and Cookies and Cream flavour were the best ones to use for the 'right' lemon cheesecake-y outcome.
