Treat yourself to our decadent Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie! This colorful, flavorful drink is perfect for a sweet tooth satisfaction, after-dinner dessert, or a special occasion breakfast. We love that this smoothie features Daisy Cottage Cheese, because this dairy option is low in calories and rich in protein–all of which combine to create the perfect creamy texture that Daisy Cottage Cheese is known for. Daisy Cottage Cheese is also rich in calcium, a mineral that has long been known for its role in bone structure and function. According to a study from the American Journal of Epidemiology, an intake of low-fat dairy foods was associated with a lower risk of endometriosis, a painful disorder affecting a woman’s uterine lining (1). This study showed that those women who consumed more than three servings of low fat dairy were less likely to be diagnosed with endometriosis (1). So the next time you want a sweet, but healthful, treat, look no further than this delicious smoothie! Enjoy!
