Make a breakfast that tastes like dessert! Serve with strawberry syrup and freshly sliced strawberries.


  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1 large egg

  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 graham crackers
  • 8 ounces (225 g) cream cheese, cut into pieces


  1. Place dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix to combine fully. Set aside.
  2. Place egg, buttermilk and melted butter into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
  3. Select Variable 1.
  4. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10.
  5. Blend for 10 seconds.
  6. Reduce speed to Variable 4, remove lid plug and slowly drop in cream cheese cubes through the lid plug opening, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades. Blend 10 seconds or until cream cheese is reduced to the size of large curd cottage cheese.
