I've been wanting to start a blog for a long time, but never made it a priority. I just made a delicious smoothie that needed to be shared with the world. So, what better reason to start?

I can't guarantee that i will remember to update this thing, although it is certainly my goal. I've had blogs in the past (I'm looking at you, LiveJournal), but they have always kind of fizzled out. I hope to be consistent, but no promises. 

I also can't really say what I am going to write about, because I have no idea. food, fitness, soccer, cupcakes, crude humor... these are a few of my favorite things. I can tell you that there will likely be too many pictures of my cat, but I will try to reign it in. 

Well! Now that I have convinced you of all the reasons not to read, how about that smoothie? 

Peach Cake Smoothie (serves one, or maybe two if you are a normal person)
  • 6-8 frozen peach slices
  • 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 scoop Muscle Milk Cake Batter protein powder (optional)
  • 1 packet sweetener (I used Stevia in the Raw)
  • Drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup
  • Ice (4-6 cubes, depending on preference)
 This made enough for one giant cup. Obviously not everyone will have Cake Batter protein powder on hand, but I'm sure it will be just as delicious without. 

The credit for using cottage cheese in smoothies goes to the Dashing Dish. I was highly skeptical (and I actually like cottage cheese), but you cannot taste it at all. It just gives it an amazing consistency. Tofu may also work. 

The nutrition info worked out to about 290 calories, 3.7 g fat, and almost 25 g protein. Not bad, eh?

If you make it, let me know what you think! 

Start a blog? .. Let's do this!
