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.

  1. 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: 
    The “Unmargarita”
    – 1/2c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
    -2T nonfat Greek Yogurt
    -1/4 English cucumber
    -2 stalks celery
    -1oz avocado
    -1/2 lime
    -1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
    -1/8t cayenne pepper
    -1/2c fresh spinach
    -1/2c frozen mango cubes
    -1/2c ice
    -top with 1t chia seeds (optional)

  2. 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.  

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

    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

  7. 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!!!

  8. It sounds amazing and I love most of Gina’s recipes Unfortunately in my opinion, this one did not live up. It was fine but not great. It was not a strong strawberry flavor and the cottage cheese taste was more prevalent than I thought it would be.
    For ease of use, I’d rather throw some protein powder and fruit straight into the blender.

  9. My favorite smoothie is spinach smoothie….it has a handful of spinach 1cup of almond milk 1/2cup of pineapple 1/2 banana 1 Tb raw honey and a scoop of collagen protein so good☺

  10. Super simple, but so delicious 

    1 cup frozen fruit (typically blend of strawberries, mango, pineapple)
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
    1 teaspoon of chia seeds
    Handful of baby spinach 
    ~3/4 scoop vanilla protein powder (love my 7.99 can from TRader Joes — 100 cals, 20 G protein, 2 g sugar per scoop)

    My dairy free smoothie- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup cold green tea, 1/2 banana, 3-5 good size frozen strawberries, 1 scoop pea protein powder, 1large kale leaf ( I buy a bunch, wash and freeze in ziplock bag) pea protein makes a thick shake, I’m totally hooked on!

  12. Hi!

    Just a question about the "1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries" part: does that mean "one and a half cups", or "one to one-half cup"?!

    Thanks!

  13. My favorite smoothie recipes is :
    3 Bananas – frozen
    Pineapple chunks (as much or little as you want)
    Pineapple juice – cold

    Ingredients:
    3 ounces of cold water
    2 ounces of frozen pineapple
    2 ounces of frozen banana
    3 ounces of frozen strawberries
    2 ounces of spinach
    2 ounces of pineapple orange juice (15 calories per ounce)
    2 Sun Crystal packets
    Directions:

    In your blender or in my case the Magic Bullet add all of your ingredients then blend. It may take a while because the fruits are frozen. Once everything is moving free your smoothie should be ready.
    Obviously you can switch out anything you want a
