Roasted strawberries in this protein packed smoothie brings out their amazing natural flavor, made with creamy cottage cheese and added chia seeds – what a great way to start the day!
Roasted Strawberry Protein Smoothie
I am always looking to get more protein in for breakfast after my workouts! I love healthy protein smoothies, like this to start off my day. This skips protein powder and uses cottage cheese which is naturally high in protein. More cottage cheese recipes you make like, this savory cottage cheese bowl, this cottage cheese frittata, and these cottage cheese waffles!
I discovered a new way to add protein to my smoothies… cottage cheese! This is a great discovery for me because I’m not a fan of the tang of yogurt in my smoothies. Cottage cheese makes it creamy with no tang, and has more protein than yogurt so it’s perfect! I also love adding chia seeds to my smoothies which is an excellent source of fiber and omega-3’s.
Roasted Strawberry Protein Smoothie
- 1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
- 1/2 tablespoon raw sugar
- 1/3 cup reduced fat cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup fat free milk
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 6 to 8 drops liquid stevia, optional
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- In a medium bowl, combine strawberries and sugar.
- Pour the strawberries on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Place in the oven and roast for 12 to 15 minutes until the strawberries start to release their juices but are still firm.
- Carefully pour the roasted strawberries and their juice into a blender along with cottage cheese, milk, ice and chia and blend until smooth.

My favorite smoothie recipe is similar to a favorite sandwich of mine—
PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA SMOOTHIE
1 frozen ripe banana cut into pieces
3/4 cup milk
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
2 tablespoons PB2, peanut butter powder
1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt
Any amounts can vary with your taste.
I absolutely love Gina’s PB&J recipe. YUM!
3/4 cup frozen blueberries, put your blueberries in the freezer!
3/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, I used Almond Breeze
1 tbsp peanut butter
5 to 6 drops liquid stevia or sweetener of your choice, NuNaturals Vanilla
1/4 cup ice
I have been playing with matcha lately. Matcha, spinach, oat milk, bananas, ice. No exact amounts, just throw and go. Now reading the chia seeds maybe I will add that! Thanks for the opportunity!
This is yummy and creamy.
It was ok
I’ve been trying to add more protein to my diet too, but I’ve never thought to try cottage cheese. Can’t wait to try this idea!
My favorite smoothie recipe:
– 1/2c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-2T nonfat Greek Yogurt
-1/4 English cucumber
-2 stalks celery
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
-1/8t cayenne pepper
-1/2c fresh spinach
-1/2c frozen mango cubes
-top with 1t chia seeds (optional)
I knew there was a reason I just bought strawberries and cottage cheese. My favorite smoothie recipe is a pear and oatmeal smoothie with yogurt. But I also regularly make your recipe for peanut butter and jelly smoothie.
As I am a newbie to smoothies, I don’t have a favorite recipe. If I win the blender, that would certainly give me the incentive to do smoothies.
My go to smoothie
2 cups of frozen mixed berries
1 cup oat bran powder
2cups fresh baby spinach (optional).
1 large piece of ginger- scrubbed but not peeled
1/2 orange -cut in half-scrubbed and seeds removed, unpeeled!!!
4 Tbs. chia seeds
2 cups oat milk- unsweeetened or any nut milk
This is sweet enough for me but you can add honey or stevia if you want more sweetness.
You may need to thin it with water.
This makes about 4 smooothies.
I will try adding cottage cheese after reading today’s post. I enjoyed reading everyone’s recipes!
I would love to have a vitamix blender. Thank you for the opportunity!!
So amazing! Love the roasted strawberries!
My go-to smoothie has spinach, frozen pineapple and mango and coconut water. It’s from the Ninja blender recipe book.
I love that this has fat free milk in it. I always seem to have that in the fridge because I can pick it up from the corner store, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to make a smoothie and I don’t have another milk alternative
My favorite is spinach, kiwi, pineapple :frozen riced cauliflower, mixed berries and chia
I love smoothies in the morning. I’ve been using protein powder, greens (such as spinach), frozen fruit and almond milk as my go to. But looking to mix things up. I love skinnytaste.com and I am so grateful for you!!!
Thanks Tammy! 🙂
