3/4 cup Frozen Blueberries (can also use fresh, but you’ll want to add ice to make it thicker)
1 cup low fat Milk
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup low fat and low sodium Cottage Cheese (I use 1%)
1/2 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (if using as a meal replacement or post workout drink)
If using, put protein powder in the blender first.
Add the rest of the ingredients in order
Blend until smooth.
1/2 C orange juice
1/2 C low fat cottage cheese
1 frozen banana
1 C frozen strawberries (any berry is fine)
Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Add more juice or water to get desired consistency. Experiment with different fruits! Raspberries, blueberries, and peaches all work well. The cottage cheese is a great source of protein and makes the smoothie nice and thick. This is my favorite way to refuel after a long workout.
