Adding cottage cheese to a smoothie gives it a rich, thick texture like a milkshake - without compromising the nutrition!
We prefer to use pre-prepped beets, found in your grocer's produce fridges (usually right next to the fresh herb boxes) so there is no cleanup and less bitter flavor from the beets.
If using raw beets, chop them to prevent your blender from getting stuck.

Say goodbye to classic smoothies, this one is coming in with a BANG!
A tantalizing blend of raspberries, beets, and lemon juice - plus cottage cheese - the key to the CREAMIEST tasting smoothies EVER! I swear it's not weird! Honey, flax, collagen, and milk of choice round out this vibrant and delicious smoothie!
- ½ cup steam cooked or raw beets, diced if using raw
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- ¼ cup cottage cheese
- ½ cup milk of choice
- ½ ounce lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons ground flax meal, optional
- 1 scoop collagen powder, optional
- 1 scoop hemp fiber powder
- 1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar, optional
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until fully combined and smooth, about 1 minute.
- Scrape down the sides if needed halfway through.
- Pour into a glass and serve with a straw.
- Steam cooked beats will blend quicker and easier, however raw can definitely be used, just be sure to dice them before adding to the blender.
- ¼ to ⅓ cup beet juice may also be used instead.
- Using frozen raspberries helps to thicken the smoothie without watering it down.
- Cottage cheese does not add any flavor to the smoothie, but it’s packed with protein and makes this smoothie slightly creamy. Greek yogurt could be used instead, but I prefer cottage cheese.
- You can use any kind of milk in this recipe, dairy, nut, oat, soy, etc.
- Honey may be substituted for maple syrup, agave, or left out.
- You can really add any “extras” you want to this smoothie, just avoid heavily flavored additions like protein powder.
- Apple cider vinegar gives this smoothie a nice zing and can take it to “juice bar” level, and it really tastes delicious - think pickled beets/raspberry vinaigrette - it’s different, but really good!
- A banana may be added to this smoothie for thickness and sweetness.
- 2 tablespoons of oatmeal may be added for thickness.
