Apple Pie Smoothie

Yummy breakfast smoothie packed with protein and fiber!

1/2 cup cottage cheese*
1 medium granny smith apple** (about 100-150 grams after core removed)
1 medium carrot (about 50 grams)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (about 15 grams) I use BodyLogix Natural Vanilla Bean

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of cloves
pinch of cardamom
(all spices can be adjusted to taste)

Water,ice, milk(dairy or otherwise), juice or heavy cream to thin to your preference

* you can sub plain Greek or regular yogurt if you like
** granny smith is a great choice for a good tart flavor, you can change up the variety of apple of course, just choose one with a nice flavor, Pink Lady would be awesome, Braeburns, Fujis....

Combine all ingredients in a high powdered blender and blend until smooth

Thin to your liking , I like mine a tad on the thick side so I used 1 TB of heavy cream to add a little fat, you can use whatever you like!
