Okay, so you all probably know there are some great recipes to be found on Pinterest.
I found the Green Smoothie recipe here.
And while I did find them to be yummy, they are made with spinach and fruit, specifically bananas, which are a no no on the BFC.
So I decided to get a little creative and mix them up a bit. The protein shake works for my diet but I really liked the idea of adding spinach for a veggie punch. And if you've ever had a green smoothie, you know that the spinach only lends its green color. It is pretty flavorless.
The cottage cheese seemed a little weird, but hey, she says it works. I also didn't have any protein powder, or at least none that was 100 calorie per serving as recommended so I used light muscle milk, which caused me to leave out the water all together.
So my version, all for less than 300 calories:
1/2 cup cottage cheese
8 oz light chocolate muscle milk
1 packet Truvia
10 ice cubes
1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
Handful of spinach
= total yumminess
No, not quite a peanut butter cup, but some chocolately peanutty goodness just the same. I didn't take a picture because if you take spinach, cottage cheese, chocolate and peanut butter and blend it all together, well, you can imagine the color it creates. I felt so full after drinking it, I don't know when I'll be ready for dinner.
