Green Smoothie

Spring, where are you?!?!?!

Yesterday we were supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow. Instead, we received more than 5.

At times, spring seems to be on its way, but then winter has to rear its ugly head again, just to remind us that it’s still here for awhile.

So I pretend. I make a bright green smoothie for breakfast – it says spring more than winter, don’t you think? If I can’t look outside to see green, at least I can look in my glass.

Green Smoothie

3/4 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup water (if using Greek yogurt)
6-8 small strawberries
3 handfuls baby spinach
2-3 ice cubes
sweetener of choice

Combine cottage cheese, yogurt, water, strawberries, and spinach in a blender; blend until smooth. Sweeten to taste with whatever sweetener you like. With blender running, drop in ice cubes one at a time through the opening in the top, replacing the cap immediately after dropping in each cube to break it up a bit.

Enjoy.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! And it’s protein-fruit-veggie-packed. What else could I ask for?

I make green smoothies all the time, however, I’ve never thought of throwing cottage cheese in it. Great choice for protein! I’ll be trying it!

Cottage cheese is so versatile – I’ve even used it in cheesecake before! Because it’s blended, no one is the wiser. :)
