It's "Not Your Typical Smoothie" Week over at Williams-Sonoma and they've asked us to contribute a recipe that uses a surprisingly different secret ingredient.
We immediately thought of this Kiwi Avocado smoothie that uses cottage cheese as a source of all-natural protein. Laurel says it's her current go-to smoothie after a hard workout because it provides that essential protein boost (13 grams!) necessary in an athlete's 30 minute refueling window.
What I really like about this smoothie is the consistency - it is creamy and mousse-like. This is a nice change from some of the more traditional icy cold smoothies, especially on these cold December days.
ps - I'm currently not blending any smoothies because my blender fell off the counter, cracked and then went down the trash chute. I'd gladly accept any of these blenders as a Christmas gift. Thanks!!
