Blueberry Yum Yum Smoothie


Blueberry Yum Yum Smoothie by The Sweet Chick
I had never heard of a Blueberry Yum Yum dessert until one of my neighbors suggested I make it.  Of course I did.  It's super easy and oh my, it is so delectable.  It's a no bake layer cake made with crushed Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, blueberry pie filling, whipped topping, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and pecans.  What's not to like about that?  I thought it would be perfect to make as a dessert smoothie.  Yeah, I know it's not a healthy smoothie, but sometimes you have to be bad.  You can use low fat whipped topping and cream cheese if it makes you feel better.  Me, I'm sticking to the good stuff.
(oops, forgot the milk)





























Williams-Sonoma contacted me to be a part of their Smoothie Week with their first installment being "Not Your Typical Smoothie".  I think this fits the bill.  I am a dessert girl, so of course I had to make a dessert smoothie.




























I used my Blentec to make this, but in all fairness it should work in any blender.  If you don't have a blender you should check out Williams-Sonoma, they have a sale on blenders and free shipping going on right now.





























The cookies crumble fairly easy and I had pre-chopped the nuts, so it all worked smoothly.  As for the pie filling, my neighbor had given me an industrial sized can of blueberry pie filling that I ended up freezing because I hadn't used it all.  Now, I had a good excuse to use it.





























I left the frozen whipped topping for last and the milk.  I added 1/4 cup because I like my smoothies thick, but you can add more if you like.

And that's it.  You can add more cookie crumbles or pecans to the top if you want.  It makes one 12 oz. serving or two 6 oz. servings.  Depends how greedy you are.  It is really good though, so I would keep it all to myself.  It tastes just like the dessert, except in a drinkable form.  Enjoy!
