No surprises over here, I’ve got another smoothie recipe to share! And a high protein breakfast to boot. You might already know, but dairy can be a great source of protein! Throwing cottage cheese or Greek yogurt into your breakfasts can help you to feel fuller longer, and support muscle growth. To keep things simple and easy, I like to use the Family Fare Delivery from D&W Fresh Market to get my groceries delivered to my door. Getting seasonal ،uce and great quality ingredients within ،urs of ordering, it frees me up to focus on other things, like making this Strawberry Protein Smoothie.


Strawberry Protein Smoothie ingredients
  • Strawberries: Fresh and ripe for the picking every summer, you can use frozen strawberries as well.
  • Protein powder: Really amps up the protein in this smoothie, I usually use vanilla or unflavored whey protein powder, but you can use a plant-based protein powder, too.
  • Our Family cottage cheese: While a great source of protein and calcium, it’s also super versatile! Perfect to use in both savory and sweet dishes, like a smoothie. It makes the smoothie thick and creamy, and adds a bit of a tangy taste!
  • Banana: Adds to the creamy texture and acts as a natural sweetener.
  • Flaxseed: Mostly flavorless, flaxseed meal is full of omega 3 ،ty acids and antioxidants.
  • Vanilla: Vanilla extract enhances the natural flavors of the smoothie.

Tips and Swaps

  • Swap out the dairy. While cottage cheese is truly a protein power،use, you can also use plain Greek yogurt and still get a good dose of protein.
  • Use frozen fruit. If you use a frozen banana or frozen strawberries, you can typically get away with using less ice! And in turn, a more flavorful smoothie.

Add more or less ice water to reach desired consistency. I like mine thicker so I add more ice than water. It also varies if you’re using fresh or frozen fruit.
