I've gotten really into having smoothies for breakfast lately. They taste great and it helps me get in some great nutrients to start my day. This one contains a couple ingredients that will make you think "What??!!" Trust me on this one. The cottage cheese adds lots of protein and gives the smoothie a creamy texture. Spinach adds lots of vitamin A and you can't even taste it (really, I promise!). ___________________________________________ Recipezaar does not have light soy milk in their nutrition database and therefore, the nutrition data is incorrect. When I make this smoothie with Silk's light plain soy milk it has: 372 Calories, 6g Fat, 60g Carbs, 7g Fiber, 24g Protein, 1,082mg Potassium, 42% RDA Calcium, 25% RDA Magnesium, 44% RDA Vitamin A, 63% RDA Vitamin B-12, 33% RDA Vitamin B-6, 92% RDA Vitamin C, 30% RDA Vitamin D

This was great! I had regular milk instead of soy, and my berries were blueberries and blackberries, but other than that, all good! My little girl loved it too and since she's a picky eater, it was nice to get a little protein in her. Made for PAC Spring 2014
- 1 cup low-fat soymilk, unflavored (add 1/2 cup more for a thinner consistency)
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 1⁄2 cup 2% fat cottage cheese
- 1⁄2 cup baby spinach leaves
- 1 cup blueberries, frozen and unsweetened
- 1⁄2 medium banana, frozen
Directions See How It's Made
- Add all ingredients to blender in the order listed (always start with liquids first when making smoothies).
- Start the blender at a low speed to get the frozen fruits chopped then increase to high speed and let blend for 2 minutes. If you have a blender like mine that only has pulse and on settings, start by pulsing a few times then turn on for 2 mintues.
- Serve and enjoy!
