Elderberry Apple Shots Cheesecake Smoothie

Serves 2

Delicious Elderberry Apple Shots infuses flavor and sweetness into each part of this decadent but healthy triple berry cheesecake smoothie.  A rich Elderberry Apple Shots cheesecake layer with real graham crackers blended right in, is sandwiched between a tart blackberry and blueberry layer, for a smoothie that tastes more like dessert than breakfast.  If you are short on time, just blend all the ingredients together and don't worry about the layers.  It will taste just as good.


For the blackberry layer:

2 Tablespoons Elderberry Apple Shots

1 Cup frozen blackberries

2/3 Cup vanilla Greek yogurt

1/4 Cup milk

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

For the Elderberry cheesecake layer:

1/4 Cup Elderberry Apple Shots

1 1/2 Cups vanilla Greek yogurt

1/2 Cup whipped cream cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 1/2 Cups ice

4 cinnamon & sugar coated graham crackers

For the blueberry layer:

2 Tablespoons Elderberry Apple Shots

1 Cup frozen blueberries

2/3 Cup vanilla Greek yogurt

1/4 Cup milk

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

*Use graham crackers, berries, and fresh mint for an optional garnish

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Place two 12 ounce glasses in the freezer to frost while you prepare the smoothies.
  2. To a blender add all of the ingredients for the blackberry smoothie layer and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, just add a splash of extra milk.  Pour it evenly into the bottom of each glass and place them back into the freezer. Rinse out the blender.
  3. Next, make the Elderberry Cheesecake layer. Add everything except the graham crackers and ice.  Blend until just combined, then add the ice cubes and blend until smooth.  Add the graham crackers and pulse the blender a couple of times just to incorporate them.  Pour this layer over the blackberry layer and once again place the smoothies back into the freezer and rinse the blender.
  4. Finally, add the ingredients for the blueberry layer to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the final layer into the glasses. 
  5. Garnish the smoothies with some graham cracker pieces, a few berries, and a sprig of mint if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!
