Blender Compatability For The Recipe

While I found most blenders I own worked with this cottage cheese smoothie recipe, 3 blenders didn’t quite work.

See the list below:

Blender Model: Suitability:
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh X
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender X
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender X
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

One of the main reasons why these 3 blenders didn’t work, is because of the lack of liquid needed in this recipe.

If you prefer your smoothies thinner, you can add more liquid.

If that is the case, all the listed blenders can work with this smoothie.

Keto Cottage Cheese Smoothie Benefits

Even though this drink is keto-friendly, it’s high in protein and many other nutrients.

Some of the main benefits of this keto cottage cheese shake include:

  • It’s High in Protein: The smoothie contains high amounts of protein, thanks to the cottage cheese and chia seeds.
  • Rich in Healthy Fats: The avocado in the smoothie contributes healthy monounsaturated fats, which are good for heart health and can help with satiety.
  • It’s Keto-Friendly: The smoothie is low carb, and low in sugar, making it suitable for individuals following a keto diet or a low sugar diet.
  • Good Source of Vitamins and MineralsThe smoothie is rich in vitamins such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A, as well as minerals like iron and calcium.
  • High in Fiber: Both avocado and spinach provide dietary fiber, which is beneficial for digestive health and can aid in maintaining a healthy gut.
  • Antioxidant-Rich: Strawberries and spinach contain antioxidants, which help combat oxidative stress and promote overall health.

Even though this keto berry cottage cheese smoothie does contain a bit of sugar, it’s all-natural sugars from the fruit and veggies used. 

The total amount of sugar per serving is only 5g!

Tasty Smoothie Variations

Some tasty variations of this smoothie that I tested include:

1. Lower The Carbs

If you are a very strict keto, 14g of carbs can be too much for you.

If that is the case, do the following:

  1. Do not use any strawberries.
  2. Use water instead of almond milk.

Removing the strawberries will make the smoothie almost completely sugar-free.

If you like a bit of sweetness, you can use keto-friendly sweeteners, such as liquid stevia drops, or monkfruit sweetener. 

#2. Don’t Like Avocados?

The perfect keto alternative to avocado in this smoothie is tofu.

Use 1/2 cup of silken tofu. This will help not only with thickening the smoothie but also boost the protein content even more.

#3. Don’t Have Chia Seeds?

I always have a bag of chia seeds at home, but I understand not many people do.

If that is the case, you can substitute the chia seeds for a tablespoon of unsweetened nut butter.

#4. Like Smoothie Bowls?

You can make a cottage cheese smoothie bowl from this recipe, and add your favorite smoothie bowl toppings. Keto-friendly, of course!

Once the smoothie is blended, pour the smoothie onto your favorite bowl, and add your desired toppings. Yummy!
