TBH, sometimes packaged protein powders can turn a berry bliss recipe into a chalky concoction that ends up being poured down the drain after one sip. These four high-protein smoothies are a different story. They use one genius ingredient that gives you the richness and creaminess you want from your meal-in-a-cup without changing the flavor: cottage cheese. If you think this classic snack is only meant to be enjoyed with a spoon out of a bowl, you’re in for quite the treat.

Note: To make your smoothie like the pro you are, add all the ingredients to a blender and blend on high until smooth.
