Read the below details VERY carefully as we want to make sure your entry counts! If you have questions, please leave them in the comments of this post.

Recipe of the Month: Blueberry cheesecake protein smoothie

Whether you just worked out or are looking for a delicious breakfast smoothie to make, we just know you’re going to absolutely love this blueberry cheesecake protein smoothie recipe of ours. It packs a whopping 19g of protein per serving thanks to our good friends cottage cheese and protein powder. It’s truly our favorite smoothie of the moment.

All About Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Smoothie

INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED

  • 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.
