Wash strawberries and spinach very well, rinse, and dry.
Slice tops off strawberries and cut in half.

Add a berry and kiwi garnish to dress up your smoothie.

My husband and I are going to add this to our smoothie list!
I love smoothies, but have never -to my knowledge at least- have tried them with cottage cheese. I’m going to have to try this!!

Sounds so wonderful! Can’t wait to try this refreshing looking smoothie. Tweeted!
This looks so intriguing. I have smoothies all the time, but I’ve never thought to use cottage cheese (which I love). Pinned this for trying very soon!
That looks super tasty! I bet the cottage cheese made it yummier. I can’t wait to try this.

I am always looking for new smoothie recipes to try. This looks so delicious and good for you. I will have to try this one on the weekend.
Spinach makes a smoothie taste so good — you never really taste it when mixed with other fruits.

Mmm. I’d love to start my day with this smoothie. I should really get in the habit of picking up more fresh fruit and greens.
Yum this sounds like a wonderful recipe. It looks super delicious too. I love the colour!
Jesica H says
My husband makes really good smoothies but they are always super tart. I bet the spinach and cottage cheese really help!

I typically use Greek yogurt in my smoothies but have used cottage cheese and found it to be wonderful. Anything that can sneak more vegetables into my kids is great with me!
I’m holding on to this recipe! Just reserved 10lbs of Strawberries for February so I will need all kinds of ideas!
I have to be honest here it doesn’t sound good to me, but I’m always willing to try something because more often than not I am surprised.
This sound healthy and yummy so just right for me. I stumbled this smoothie recipe.
I love hiding spinach in my smoothies! I can’t even really taste it in there!
