High Protein Cheesecake Smoothie

High Protein Cheesecake Smoothie ~ This smoothie is full of protein from the whey protein powder, cottage cheese & vanilla soy milk.  This was such a great way to start my morning!  Add some of your favorite fruit & you've got a fruited cheesecake flavor.  Hello, Breakfast! 

This morning, I had a craving for a piece of cheesecake ~ but, I don't usually have that hanging around the house... and besides, it was time for breakfast ~ not dessert.  So, I rummaged around the fridge & pantry and came up with a version that satisfied both my need for breakfast & my sweet tooth.  I'm calling it my ~ High Protein Cheesecake Smoothie.

You could easily add some of your favorite fresh/frozen fruits to change up the flavor & turn this into, say ~ a Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie.  Some other Cheesecake Fruit Smoothie flavors that come to mind ~ Strawberry, Blueberry, Pineapple or Peach.  Cheesecake for breakfast, anyone?   :)
