I did something for the first time…I put cottage cheese in a smoothie. I knew it would all taste fine in the end, but just scooping it in for the first time freaked me out just a bit, I’m no afraid to admit it! It yielded a different texture than I could have gotten with lets say, yogurt. So I will be using it more and more in my smoothies, hopefully not cringing next time 🙂
This smoothie turned out super good, perfect consistency and fulfilled my craving for something sweet that was pretty darn healthy as well.
Banana Cream Pie Smoothie
One ripe banana, quartered
⅓ cup lowfat cottage cheese
⅓ cup lowfat milk
1 packet sweetner (optional…I like Stevia)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup ice
Graham crackers (I just threw one whole cracker in)
Add all of your ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy!
