Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Smoothie for breakfast or snack. Weight Watcher smart points too

I’ve been inundating myself with fresh strawberries since we are lucky enough to get Florida Strawberries at the store in January.  I know I have told you time and time again about my morning issues.  Once the alarm clock goes off, I fumble my way down the stairs to get breakfast for my daughter and coffee for me.  Sorry Lucy Doggy, I have to turn my espresso machine on before I let you outside or feed you.  I have my priorities.  I have to know exactly what I am making my little one for breakfast.  I’ve been known to accidentally grab leftover dinner out of the fridge instead of her breakfast.  Oh, morning woes.

Love waking up to this delicious smoothie with high protein

As for my breakfast, it isn’t going to happen at least for an hour. By then I’ve savored every last drop of my cappuccino and gotten a lot of work done. I am also starving. Yup, I go from not being the least hungry to being so hungry I could eat a chunk of my desk. So it has to be quick. It also has to be loaded with protein. That is what makes a Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Smoothie perfect. I not only use protein powder, but my absolutely, positively favorite smoothie ingredient, cottage cheese. Cottage cheese makes a smoothie thick and creamy without any ice. No ice in my smoothie, please.
So quick and easy. Love the additional protein

Whip up this delicious and healthy smoothie for breakfast or a snack. If you are not lucky enough to get fresh strawberries this time of year, you can use frozen strawberries.  Bottoms Up!

Had this for breakfast today. It was so good
