One of my goals for 2016 is to make healthier choices. Now, while I might never fully give up my morning cup of java, starting the day right with a protein-packed smoothie is always a delicious option and this Cinna-Pear Smoothie has been my morning obsession.
Smoothies, to me, always seemed to be the same thing – ice, a bit of almond milk, some protein powder and some fruit (and/or veggies). I am more of a fruit gal and always have fresh fruit on hand – toss everything in the blender, blitz and it is breakfast on-the-go as I am racing to the 9to9. Another ingredient I have on hand for those days when I want to add a bit more protein to the menu is Friendship Dairies cottage cheese – the original superfood – that is high in protein. I use their 1% small curd cottage cheese that packs a whopping 15 grams of protein per serving and is a great source of long lasting energy like in these Chocolate Cherry Almond Bowls. Cottage cheese has glammed up my friends!…
