Fresh Start Strawberry Smoothie
A green smoothie that supports your health and tastes like a milkshake? Yes, please! This is my very favorite green smoothie recipe, and I love it for cleaning up after a rough patch with my diet. :) I liked starting out with pink layered smoothies, and then working my way into the all green after I associated these with the yummy pink strawberry milkshake taste.
  • 1 - 1½ cups frozen sliced (unsweetened) strawberries, or whole frozen berries
  • ½ cup low fat cottage cheese, I love the 2% Daisy brand
  • 3 cup almond milk, divided if you want a striped smoothie
  • 1 full dropper hazelnut stevia, or sweetener to taste with hazelnut flavoring
  • 1-2 cups rinsed fresh baby spinach leaves
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 10 ice cubes, optional if you use fresh berries
  1. If you want a green smoothie, add all ingredients to the blender, and blend until smooth.
  2. Adjust sweetness to taste, and enjoy
  3. If you want a striped smoothie, add berries, cottage cheese, sweetener and flavorings, and 1½ cups of almond milk.
  4. Blend until smooth, and pour ⅓ cup into the bottom of each glass. Pour off about half of the remaining pink smoothie into another glass to layer in later.
  5. Add spinach and additional almond milk to remaining smoothie, and reblend until smooth and green.
  6. Spoon in on top of the pink layer, adding additional pink stripes spooned in from your reserved pink smoothie.
  7. Enjoy!
This recipe works on the Trim Healthy Mama plan as a FP. It makes 2 large servings. You may also freeze leftovers and enjoy smoothie pops later!
