6 Ingredients You Need for this Smoothie

  • Frozen blueberries: we recommend either using frozen blueberries or freezing your own before making this smoothie because it helps to give the smoothie a thick, cold texture instead of being runny. Check out our tutorial for freezing berries!
  • Frozen banana: same thing here! Frozen banana > fresh nanner to ensure a thick, creamy texture. We also have a banana freezing tutorial!
  • Chia seeds: any kind of chia seeds work. The most common chia seeds you can find are black and white chia seeds. We’ve used both! Chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition and are packed with fiber and healthy fats. 
  • Vanilla protein powder: any vanilla protein powder will work. Check out some of our favorites below.
  • Almond milk: any kind of milk works! We like to use unsweetened almond milk, but feel free to use oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk, cows milk.
  • Cottage cheese: if you’re new around here, you may not know how much we LOVE blending cottage cheese for an added protein boost. It’s super creamy and delish in such a wide variety of dishes. Everything from our cottage cheese ice cream to our chocolate mousse cups and even a cottage cheese alfredo.

High-Speed Blender Recommendations

High-speed blender is crucial to blending the cottage cheese into a creamy cheesecake consistency for this smoothie. A Vitamix or the Beast are our two favorite blender brands. Just be sure you have a high-powered blender that will easily cream the ingredients together.

What Kind of Cottage Cheese Should I Use?

We recommend using full-fat cottage cheese (2% or 4%) for this recipe for a few reasons:

  1. Texture: full-fat cottage cheese has less water/moisture, making the texture thicker and more like a milkshake.
  2. Taste: full-fat cottage cheese will give this a true cheesecake taste.

Our Top Tip for Smoothies

We’ve been making smoothies for decades, and there are two rules we always follow:

We highly recommend using frozen fruit over fresh fruit! Fresh fruit tends to emit more liquid than frozen fruit, making your smoothie more watery.

We also HIGHLY recommend avoiding ice, if possible. Ice also tends to produce a more water-y smoothie, plus, if you can achieve that thick and chilled texture by using nutrient-dense ingredients instead of ice, why wouldn’t you!?

Keep a stash of frozen fruit in you freezer at all times or freeze extra berries or fruit that you have at home for DIY frozen fruit.

You only need to freeze your fruit for 30-60 minutes for it to be smoothie ready, so no need to worry if you’re just popping your fruit into the freezer now! You’ll be off and running with a delicious smoothie in no time 😀
