Alright ya’ll. I have a good one for you today. Yesterday I made the best smoothie ever. It tasted like a thick, creamy milkshake. It was so good, I made it again today. And I want another one right now…..but…..it’s past 8:00 pm.
I force myself to stop drinking liquids at 8:00 pm. If I don’t, I am up all night going to the bathroom. No lie. Even when I don’t drink anything past 8, I still get up once in the middle of the night. Sad times over here.
Was there ice cream in this aforementioned smoothie/milkshake/hybrid you ask? No… This smoothie is a super healthy snack and can easily be turned into a meal on the go with the addition of protein powder.
So I didn’t have a glass massive enough to fit all that smoothie in, and I hate doing dishes so I figured why not solve both problems by drinking it directly from the blender!? Roommate got a kick out of this one. I told her my blog is called CollegeGirlCooking for a reason.
Strawberry Milkshake Amazingness
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup cottage cheese (SERIOUSLY! You will love this I promise!)
3 tsp sugar or stevia or whatever sweetener your heart desires
enough milk of choice to reach desired consistency. I probably used about a cup of 2%. I never measure the liquid I add to smoothies. I just add a little, then keep adding more until is it justtttt rightttt.
Put everything in the blender. Blend. Voila. Super protein packed delicious milkshake-esque smoothie. The cottage cheese makes the smoothie super creamy and more like a milkshake rather than a smoothie. Like I said, you can add a scoop or two of protein powder and make this smoothie into a meal on the go.
Also, random thought, but some cocoa powder could also be a super great add in. Chocolate covered strawberry milkshake? I might just have to try that out tomorrow.
I’m going to relax the rest of this Wednesday evening. I totally need and deserve it after a day of super hard-core studying. I hope you all can have a restful evening as well.
