Chocolate Smoothie...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

I found this smoothie recipe floating around on Facebook one day and thought
it sounded interesting and healthy.  I made it yesterday for breakfast and it was DELICIOUS.

There is one surprising ingredient I really was NOT sure of adding, but 
it worked out perfectly and added more protein, which is always good for me.

Chocolate Smoothie...

The surprise ingredient is COTTAGE CHEESE...


1 scoop protein powder, chocolate flavored
1 Tbs. cocoa powder, I used unsweetened
1 packet hot coco mix.  I used a sugar free/diet brand
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup cottage cheese.  Again, I used a low fat version.

Put all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
You may need to add more milk to thin out the smoothie.

DELICIOUS and pretty good for you...

Enjoy your day!


  1. A chocolate smoothie for breakfast...yum! The addition of cottage cheese is interesting, but I like that it adds protein and I'm sure it gets nice and smooth in the blender. Have a great day Lois!

  3. Hmmmm....I'm not a chocolate fan, but my Dudette is. I wonder how she'd like the smoothie. I bet she would. And there's the extra protein benefit. I'm definitely trying it.

  4. That looks really good to me - pinning it. sandie

  5. That does look good and I was surprised by the cottage cheese also.

  6. Now that is a new twist. Never heard of using cottage cheese, but it would add even more protein to that shake. I'll check it out!

  7. Love cottage cheese in shakes and in pancake or waffle batter. Boosts protein!
