Mornings around my home tend to be quite chaotic. So often it is easy to want to flock to the drive through to grab my morning coffee, smoothie and muffin. However, it isn’t always the best option for my wallet or waistline.
For this reason on busy mornings, I tend to find myself preparing smoothies that are high in protein and fiber. My favourite way to add protein to a smoothie is using Nordica Cottage Cheese.
Nordica Cottage Cheese goes with all of your favourites, from fruit to pasta. It is low in fat and has many healthy benefits, including calcium, Vitamin D and protein.
One would never think it would taste great in a smoothie, but oh boy does it ever! If you haven’t tried a smoothie infused with cottage cheese, you must! The outcome is like a delicious liquefied cheesecake in a glass.
