I’ve been really into smoothies lately. Quick, easy, and portable! We are always on the go so smoothies work out great. Plus, my oldest loves to help make them!
This smoothie is one I made about 1714 times over the past few months. Its a full meal. It’s filling, and it’s a huge portion. With summer ending the fresh peaches may not be the best but you could always sub frozen ones, or swap them out for another fruit. This recipe even works fine without including them at all….I’ve been in zombie no sleep mode many times and just randomly left out key ingredients. It’s surprising I don’t forget my kids in stores.
You’ll also see there’s a good amount of protein but no protein powder. I prefer recipes like this because when I use high protein foods instead of powder I get more volume for my macros. Also, protein powder makes my stomach feel blahhh sometimes so I use it really sparingly.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
- 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
- 150g fresh peaches
- 80g frozen raspberries
- 30g avocado
- liquid stevia (or packets) to taste
- 6-8 ice cubes
*this recipe is easily customizable if you want less carbs, or more fat…you can sub fattier cottage cheese which is typically lower in carbs, or put in less peaches or leave them out altogether (still just as good)
