Tastes-Like-Cheesecake Lemon Smoothie

This lemon smoothie tastes like a melted slice of lemon cheesecake. I need to warn you, this one is hard to quit making.

This has a tangy lemon taste on the front end, then a touch of sweetness and creaminess from the cashews and banana in the middle, and then a zesty lemon twist on the back end. I’ve fallen in love with the Sprout Living lucuma protein powder, so I’ve included that as an optional booster. That addition makes it even creamier.

For the creamiest results (particularly with conventional blenders) soak your cashews. You can soak the quick way by covering in boiling water for 10 minutes, then draining. Or soak the slow way and activate them for 2 hours with filtered water, then drain, and rinse. Do not use the soaking liquid for the cashews in the smoothie. Read more about the benefit of soaking here.

Let the “tart at heart” in you sing, blend up this lemon smoothie for a taste of cheesecake.
