Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

I was wondering what to make with the left over yoghurt (from my tandoori chicken – ended up buying 1 litre, as it was the smallest quantity available), some cream, and strawberries; all which were lying in my fridge.

After googling some recipes yesterday, I came across a strawbery cheesecake smoothie. I’ve adapted it abit. The original recipe required vanilla ice cream, but I opted to use yoghurt. The cottage cheese that I used was fat free, so in essence, its actually a delicious, healthy drink – if the cream is eliminated.

I was very happy with the results:

smoothieWhat went in:

  • 8 strawberries
  • 250ml plain greek yoghurt
  • plain cottage cheese (cream, low fat)
  • 25ml single cream (optional)
  • sugar to taste

Dump everything into magmix, and blend until smooth. Drink immediately.

Fruit Smoothie

I felt like eating fruit yesterday and opted for a smoothie instead. I love the M&B ones and decided to give it a go.. but not exactly the same – this one isnt 99% fat free

What I used:

2 banana’s sliced
8 strawberry
100ml-120ml low fat milk (I cant bear drinking fat free)
250ml yoghurt
sugar to taste

In a blender, liquidize the bananas and strawberrys. I chopped the strawberrys before popping it in. Then add the yoghurt. I used 2 x vanilla flavours and 1 banana flavour (100g). Blend until smooth. Add sugar to taste. Lastly add milk and give it another blend.

I got this from the Eat In magazine. Of course any fruit can be used, based on your liking. The recipe did say ‘fat free milk’ but I dont do fat free
