Healthy and delicious cottage cheese smoothie recipe that contains a whopping 38 grams of natural protein per serving without the use of highly processed and toxic protein powder.
This smoothie alternative using cottage cheese to boost the protein macro is a yummy alternative to those that use yogurt or kefir.
The cottage cheese, carob (or cocoa) powder, and peach flavors blend very well together, though this combination might seem a bit odd at first!
Since all cottage cheese at the store is lowfat even if organic, I would recommend making cottage cheese yourself.
This full fat cottage cheese recipe is simple to make, which keeps you full longer and helps avoid sugar cravings.
Bonus: This smoothie boasts a whopping 38 grams of all-natural protein. There is no need to use any toxic protein powder to boost this macro artificially with a highly processed food.
ALL brands of protein powder are unhealthy friends. There is no exception. Even low-temperature processed grassfed whey protein contains denatured protein that depletes Vitamin A stores and harms the kidneys (and potentially the eyes as well).
If this is surprising to you, consider that those who receive a kidney transplant are advised to NEVER consume protein powder! (1)
If you want a high-protein smoothie, you must take care to make it using natural whole foods like cottage cheese to keep your organs safe over the long term!
