The Honey Walnut Superfood Smoothie

I always loved a good smoothie, and I was recently inspired to try Friendship Dairies cottage cheese in one of my nutrition packed smoothies. I love cottage cheese, especially with mix-ins, but for some reason never thought to make a cottage cheese smoothie. Well, glad I did, because they are delicious, and as we all now know, it’s the #originalsuperfood!

If you love the texture and taste of Friendship Dairies cottage cheese, you’ll especially appreciate this. It’s versatile and tastes great with so many things, and now enjoying it for my morning smoothie makes it an awesome, energy-boosting way to start the day! I used the Superfood Generator to create my perfect, antioxidant-filled, stay-young-and-beautiful smoothie dream:

I added two tablespoons of honey, two tablespoons of walnuts, and about one tablespoon of raw sunflower seeds to 1/2 a cup of Friendship Dairies 1% cottage cheese and 1/2 a cup of pineapple juice for a protein-packed, vitamine C- vitamin E, and Omega-3 fatty acid-rich smoothie.


(yep, it looks good just like that too- you just want to stir it together and spoon it up!)

I also added some nutmeg and cinnamon for manganese and even more incredible flavor, and the result was seriously the nectar of the Gods… the most amazing smoothie to start the day! It’s a lovely light tan color that drinks easily, so I was able to enjoy it with a cute straw.

Friendship Dairies cottage cheese Superfood Smoothies are high in protein, and with the mix-ins, you can add in other vitamins and minerals you need, or a tasty flavor you love. It’s incredible how good cottage cheese and honey taste together, and the nutty yumminess of the walnuts makes it so much tastier than any smoothie I’ve tried before. I can’t imagine making a smoothie without the Original Superfood again.
