Vegetarian Protein Smoothie

Today, we have a very unique smoothie recipe. We know what your initial reaction will be, you will think we are crazy, but you will need to make it and try it before you judge us!
So, today we made a vegetarian protein smoothie, with no protein powder, and the protein source is…paneer! Crazy, right?

Vegetarian Protein Smoothie

If you have never heard of paneer before, it’s a cooking cheese, often used in Indian recipes. It’s like Indian cottage cheese. It’s a none melting soft-ish cheese, that blends well and provides creaminess and protein to your smoothies.
Paneer doesn’t have a strong taste/flavor, which is perfect, because once blended with your other ingredients, you really cannot tell there was paneer added.

Say No To Protein Powders!

Not all protein powders are good for you. Some contain heavy metals and other stuff that your body is better off without.
Paneer contains quite a lot of protein, making it ideal for the protein source of your smoothie.

If you are a little bit unsure about the paneer in the smoothie, then you can substitute it for regular cream cheese, yogurt, etc, but we dare you to try it!
