Steps

  • Roasting strawberries in this smoothie brings out their amazing natural flavor in this creamy, protein packed smoothie what a great way to start the day!I discovered a new way to add protein to my smoothies... cottage cheese! This is a great discovery for me because I'm not a fan of the tang of yogurt in my smoothies. Cottage cheese makes it creamy with no tang, and has more protein than yogurt so it's perfect! I also love adding chia seeds to my smoothies which is an excellent source of fiber and omega-3's which is available at Target.I'm sooo excited to review my new Vitamix blender for the first time. Wow, what power this blender has. And guess what it's now available at Target! And Target is giving one away to a lucky winner!!
