  1. Finally got around to making this and I’m glad I did. Used chocolate protein powder. So much rich and chocolaty goodness. Wow! The whole family loved this! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I’ve been dying to try out my new Vitamix, and made this recipe before work today! AMAZING! I’m currently in my second trimester, and craving protein rich snacks and foods that are healthy. Thank you Liz!!

  3. I LOVE cottage cheese. Normally when I eat it I cover it tons of pepper and diced tomatoes. It’s my favorite snack and to be honest I’ll happily eat it for breakfast too..haha. I think ti’s a great idea to incorporate it into a smoothie. I want this tomorrow!
