This blackcurrant cheese cake smoothie recipe has won the first prize in the Best of Cassis Smoothie contest 2017. The participants had to use blackcurrant concentrate in their recipes. You may, of course, not be able to buy this in a shop. But blackcurrant concentrate is nothing more than what it says: concentrated blackcurrant juice. You can simply replace it with the double of the amount of pure blackcurrant juice. Keep in mind: pure blackcurrant juice does not contain any added water or sugar!

This recipe is so simply delicious and easy to prepare – while your guests will be delighted with such an original dessert.

Of course, you can also serve it as an afternoon drink, cool and smooth!
