Roasted Strawberry Protein Smoothie

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.
