Cheesecake smoothie

Cottage cheese may not exactly be new to you. But using it to power a smoothie puts a completely fresh and delicious spin on this retro food. It also makes for a perfect snack. “It's a fantastic source of protein,” says Salge Blake. A half-cup serving has 85 calories, 11 grams of protein and 115 mg of bone-building calcium — around 10 percent of your daily need. 


Blend 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries and 1/2 frozen banana.
