I had some cottage cheese I needed to use up so this smoothie was invented. You may use fresh fruit for this but you may need to add some ice cubes to make it thick. Note: It is not intended to be a sweet smoothie, so if it is not sweet enough feel free to add additional sugar or honey.
- 1⁄2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1⁄2 cup cantaloupe (cubes)
- 1⁄2 banana (frozen)
- 6 frozen strawberries
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Blend all ingredients till smooth.
This was so creamy that it tasted like the ultimate decadent smoothie, but it wasn't: it was super-healthy! We're not really into anything being really sweet so, with the natural flavours of the fruits starring, for us this was a taste sensation, and a recipe I'll make again and again for breakfasts-on-the-run and take-to-work lunches. My only additions were a drop of vanilla and a small sprinkling of cinnamon. The only change I'll make when preparing it ahead is to not freeze the banana as it may well make the smoothie too watery. I may also add some wheat germ and some seeds and nuts. Even more nutrition and I love the textural variety they provide. Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous recipe, MsSally.

Oh my goodness, this is a wonderful afternoon treat Sally. What I like about it is the fact that has so many "good for you" ingredients. I was intriqued with the addition of cottage cheese and in fact this is the 2nd recipe for smoothies I"ve tried with this addition. It makes for a nice thick smoothie and compliments the fruits well. I opted for frozen raspberries instead of strawberries. And after tasting I also decided to add one packet of Splenda. Because as you stated it isn't a sweet smoothie and I just wanted a touch of sweetness. Perfect.! Other than that, I used all the posted ingredients listed. A great recipe and one I"m glad I tagged.~ Made for 123Hits!
GREAT SMOOTHIE, & most definitely a keeper of a recipe! Was intrigued with the use of cottage cheese here (for me it's usually vanilla yogurt), but it combined very well with the OJ & other fruits & juices! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
