These cheesecake bites with Vanilla Shakeology feature the classic, taste-good flavor combo of lemon and blueberry.
- ¾ cup / 20 g freeze-dried blueberries, divided use
- 1 Tbsp finely grated lemon peel (lemon zest) (approx. ½ medium lemon), divided use
- ½ cup / 50 g whole-wheat graham cracker crumbs
- ¼ cup / 30 g almond flour
- 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
- ¾ cup / 185 g reduced-fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup / 45 g whipped cream cheese
- 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 scoop Vanilla Whey or Plant-Based Vegan Shakeology
Set aside 16 blueberries and 1 tsp. lemon zest, to be used as a garnish.
Line 8 muffin cups with muffin cup papers (or use silicone muffin cups); set aside.
Add graham cracker crumbs, almond flour, and coconut oil to a small mixing bowl; stir to combine.
Press cookie crumble into bottoms and up sides of prepared muffin cups.
Add yogurt, cream cheese, maple syrup, and extract to a large mixing bowl; stir to combine. Slowly mix in Shakeology, stirring constantly, until fully combined. Gently fold in remaining blueberries and remaining 2 tsp. lemon zest.
Evenly divide yogurt mixture among prepared muffin cups; garnish each cheesecake bite with 2 reserved blueberries and a sprinkle of reserved lemon zest. Freeze in an airtight container for at least 30 min, or up to 1 week. If frozen, set out at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
