Chocolate-Covered Cherry Smoothie

See Smoothie Basics for details on ingredients / methods.

This green smoothie uses cottage cheese for protein. Thanks to the banana, it is still sweet enough without adding sweetener.

1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
2 teaspoons unsweetened Dutch cocoa powder, such as Droste
60 g baby spinach (about 2 cups)
1.5 oz. peeled and frozen banana slices (slightly less than half a banana)
140 g frozen cherries without added sugar (about 1 cup)

Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Version 2: 16 oz.
0.75 cup unsweetened almond-coconut coconut milk
3 oz. fat-free cottage cheese

1.2 oz. peeled and frozen banana slices (less than half a banana)
