Vanilla & Berries Delight

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition, Recipes

As many of you know I used to eat cottage cheese like it was my job, often twice per day. I had a recipe that I ate nearly every single day, and I loved it. Now that I have cut back on my dairy consumption, and no longer really eat cottage cheese, this delicious meal was no longer an option.

So I have decided to do something about it. I have created a non-cottage cheese smoothie version, which I personally think is absolutely delicious. If you love vanilla and you love berries, you will absolutely love this smoothie.

Vanilla & Berries Delight

  • 6-8oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein
  • 1/2 cup wild frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp milled flax seed
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • ice cubes as desired

Now if you are a guy who needs a few more calories than this provides, then I would add in 6oz vanilla Greek yogurt, and maybe bump the flax to 2 tbsp and the walnuts to 1/4 cup, or you can just do any one of those things, depending on your needs. You could also add in some old-fashioned oats or quinoa flakes if you needed to bump up the carbs.

If you are a woman, or anyone looking to keep calories lower, you could keep it as is since it is only about 360 calories, or you could cut walnuts down to 1 tbsp and berries down to 1/4 cup each if you really needed to.

The point is, do not be afraid to make changes or experiment based on your needs and desires. Enjoy!

    Thanks for putting up these recipes. I enjoy your blog.

    Do you have any recommendations for affordable rice protein powder that doesn’t taste like dust? I got some vanilla rice protein powder from Whole Foods, and I use lots of fruit, but I keep feeling like I’m drinking a chalk shake. Sun Warrior rice protein powder gets good reviews, but is expensive.

    this is crap. what is “vanilla protein”. ive never heard of such a product. is there protein in vanilla? i dont think so. this is a recipe for fatness.

    Scott,

    I use the same protein powder from Whole Foods and I have found the chocolate protein powder to be much more palatable than the vanilla version. I agree with you in that their vanilla protein powder tastes and looks disgusting when blended.

    Brian,

    Any recommendations on protein powders? Or at least protein types. Been using a great whey/casein blend for a while, but looking to get away from it as per the dairy issue.

    I just made this shake and it tastes amazing. I used the Vitamin Shoppe Vanilla protein. It tastes great. I normally hate Vanilla protein and live off Chocolate but I dont think chocolate would waste good in this recipe.
