Smoothies are great. Perfect for breakfast or after workouts, this protein packed Apple Cottage Cheese Smoothie is one of my favourites.
I don’t know about you, but I happen to LOVE smoothies. For me they are awesome for breakfast since I am not really a breakfast person. If I can blend something up and take it with me to my computer that is perfect. I love the fact you can pack so much nutrition into a drink.
Let’s face it most people are interested in nutrition. I know we ALL love the desserts, spectacular dinners, cheese, wine, bread. You know the list goes on and on…after all we are “foodies”. At some point along the way we really have to make sure we are getting proper nutrition, and what better way than from wholesome food.
This smoothie is packed with just that….nutrition in a glass. How awesome is that!! Who says healthy can’t be tasty?
One of the things I love making for lunch is a little creation of cottage cheese, apples, coconut and cranberries. I just layer it in a bowl and dig in. I thought why not make this into a smoothie, so I created this wonderful Apple Cottage Cheese Smoothie.
Nutrition is not difficult, and there are so many wonderful foods that help you stay on track. This smoothie is packed with some awesome ingredients.
We all know the goodness in apples. Filled with fibre, vitamins and antioxidants they are a powerhouse on their own. Cottage cheese contains protein, calcium and loads of vitamins and minerals. Hemp hearts speak for themselves with all the goodness they bring packed with protein and omegas.
Throw in some cranberries, shredded coconut and sweeten with natural agave nectar, you have yourself a highly nutritious and delicious smoothie.
Looking for a simple way to get more nutrition into your day…this Apple Cottage Cheese Smoothie is it. Healthy and yummy!
