A New Super Smoothie

Today’s blog post seems like an excellent time to share a smoothie recipe I recently tried and enjoyed. I try to make a smoothie most days of the week, usually as a snack, and this typically involves tossing together bunch of ingredients in a blender that sound delicious. Rarely do I follow recipes regarding my smoothies, or cooking in general, because I consider myself an artist in the kitchen. On this occasion I surfed the web and found myself on the Blendtec website where I found a recipe calling for:

  • 6oz Water 
  • ½ Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 ½ Cups Kale
  • 1 Cup Pineapple
  • ¾ Cup Mango
  • 1 Cup Ice
  • 1 Tbsp. Sweetener of Choice (Agave Nectar, Honey, etc.)

Besides the taste, the best part of this recipe is its simplicity. You merely add the ingredients to a blender in the order listed and blend until you reach your desired thickness. One thing to note is that the portions listed crank out two 14oz. servings. The ease of this recipe means that in about 5 minutes you can be out the door with a smoothie that delicious and nutritious.
