Richmond got tons of snow over the weekend so it might seem a little crazy to post a smoothie recipe today but I know I’m not the only one who enjoys smoothies all year round! Honestly, it doesn’t matter how cold it gets, I’m still filling up my Vitamix! This blueberry cheesecake smoothie is sweet and creamy but still low in sugar and high in protein so can eat this for breakfast and it’ll keep you going until lunch!
- 3/4 cup blueberries
- 3/4 cup Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 4 drops stevia OR 1 tbsp honey
- Handful of ice (4-5 large cubes)
- 2 tbsp whole grain oats
- This is an easy one! Blend everything up until it’s smooth and creamy.
- You can use fresh blueberries, but the frozen ones will give you a thicker texture.
I’m actually not usually a fan of cottage cheese. I’m much more of a Greek yogurt girl, but it works so well in this recipe! It makes the smoothie so creamy and cottage cheese is loaded with protein! If you don’t have cottage cheese on hand, you could sub in Greek yogurt, but I highly recommend the cottage cheese! This would also work well with strawberries or raspberries and you could certainly use the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze vanilla flavor instead of the regular flavor. So many options!
You can also add a few extra oats on top or add a sprinkle of granola if you’re craving a crunch!
What’s your favorite smoothie recipe?
