Introduction

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/2 cup 1% Milk
    1/2 cup Lowfat 1% Cottage Cheese
    4-8 packets of Splenda (or sweeten to taste w/ your choice of sweeteners)
    1/2 tsp. Vanilla or Almond extract (optional)
    2 cups (300 grams) Strawberries, frozen, unsweetened

Tips

Do not add the frozen fruit until cottage cheese is blended smooth.


Directions

Place the milk, cottage cheese, sweetener and extract in blender and blend until completely smooth and all lumps are gone (30 seconds). NOTE: DO NOT ADD FROZEN FRUIT UNTIL COTTAGE CHEESE IS BLENDED SMOOTH.

Then add frozen strawberries (or frozen fruit of choice) a few at a time, blending in-between each addition until all are added and shake is smooth.

This is HUGE- large enough to share with 2 people (120 calories each)- but drinking the entire shake myself can serve as a very filling meal.

Try it with frozen blueberries, frozen berries or frozen peaches.

    I have been doing similar shake for years -- I HATE the texture of cottage cheese, but get the benefit this way. My recipe calls for 2/3 C. cottage cheese, 1/3 C. yogurt, 1/2 C. berries, and crystal light (I use fruit juice or non-fat milk). One of my breakfast staples!! - 6/12/09

    Try adding vanilla protein powder, or just a plain splash of vanilla essence. Plain youghurt or a bit of sour cream for a more authentic cheesecake flavour. Its all up to your personal taste buds. - 4/2/09

    Just made this today. I used 1/2 c low fat vanilla soymilk instead of the 1% milk and decreased the cottage cheese to 1/3 c since I'm not a huge fan. I also included 1T flaxseed. Yum!!! Definitely tastes like cheesecake, and I couldn't taste the cottage cheese. Will make again! - 1/17/10

    I just tried this with blueberries and it was AWESOME! But, maybe everything is better with blueberries? :-) I also subbed almond milk for the 1%, Stevia for sweetener, almond flavoring, and one scoop of protein powder. This is definitely a favorite!!! - 2/16/10
