Blueberry Cottage Cheese Smoothie Recipe

Blueberry Cottage Cheese Smoothie is a great way to maintain your resolutions. Creamy and sweet with a dash of warm spice!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we love smoothies around here, like this Blueberry Cottage Cheese Smoothie.

It’s one of our not-so-secret healthy tricks to substitute one meal a day with a nourishing smoothie.

Especially when I’m cooking up desserts like ­­­­Cream Cheese Flan all the time!

Smoothies are quick, delicious and nutritious! They help balance the holiday over-indulgence and help maintain those New Year’s resolutions.

We can all use a little help with sticking to our New Years resolutions. These smoothies will hopefully become more than a resolution, but a delicious and quick staple in your breakfast all year round!  

To keep from getting bored, I’m always thinking of new combinations.

My go-to flavor is usually strawberry and banana. To increase the nutrients, I typically add a few handfuls of spinach without changing the taste.

I like experimenting with other vegetables in my smoothies as well, like Orange Carrot Smoothie.

This time I decided to experiment with the protein component. I never use powdered protein in my smoothies, but I do like to add Greek yogurt.

It’s a good source of calcium and the protein keeps me fueled and feeling full.

I remember my parents eating cottage cheese and peaches for breakfast when I was younger.

I thought it was a weird combination, but it recently struck me that it would be a great addition to a smoothie.

I wanted to stay away from peaches, so I threw it in my blueberry smoothie along with a banana.

A dash of warm spice brings it all together. Take your pick of cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom — they all taste fantastic with blueberries!

The result is a thick and creamy smoothie without the tang of yogurt. It’s richer without adding sugar or fat!

Hello, healthy blueberry cheesecake smoothie! You can be sure I’ll be sipping on this after my morning workout.
