Saturday was my daughter E’s fifth birthday party. I can hardly believe I’ve been a mom for FIVE years, more if you count the 9 months of “morning” sickness that preceded her arrival. We did a Frozen themed birthday party for her and it was so much fun. I love having people over and I love working with a theme, especially one that involves hanging snowflakes all over my house. I’ll share more about the party later, but I have to tell you about our visit from Elsa! We hired a company to send out a Princess Elsa and the kids loved it! She sang for them, played a game, read them a book, made balloon animals, and did face painting. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.

I had so much fun watching E soak in the day, surrounded by friends, family, and great food. Hearing her say, “This is the best birthday EVER!” made all the time and energy I spent planning the party all worth it. A hundred times over. She’s such a sweetie. She’s smart, sassy, and has the biggest heart. The way she cares for others inspires me to be a better person. I’m so blessed to be her momma.

They both devoured these smoothies and didn’t even have any idea that they contained cottage cheese. They were enamored by a couple of their favorite fruits paired with sweet, sweet honey. Who wouldn’t love that?

  1. E is seriously the cutest smoothie model EVER! And Hapyp belated birthday to her!
    I LOVELOVELOVE that you used cottage cheese in here. I eat it a lot and it’s so under rated, I think. pinning!

  2. Guess what: I’d rather eat cottage cheese vs. yogurt any day of the week. LOVE this recipe! And E’s sweet smile [N’s too]. Happy belated birthday sweet girl!

  3. OMG those kids are adorable, cuties!! 🙂 Cottage cheese in a smoothie is definitely news to me, but I can see how it adds a creamy texture, and I love the health benefits!

  4. Aaw they seriously have the most adorable smile:) Happy belated birthday to E! I am a such a big fan of cottage cheese and love that you used it in these smoothies! Such a great idea!

  5. Such cute kids! Hiding cottage cheese in smoothies is such a good idea for getting in an extra protein boost!

  6. Your babies are adorable and that party sounds like a blast! I’ve never seen a smoothie made with cottage cheese. If the kids and your husband didn’t know it was there, maybe it is the new yogurt!

  10. sounds good

  11. I’m going to try cottage cheese in my next smoothie!

  12. Oh I like this idea! Can people taste the cottage cheese? Do you drink this before you exercise? (I’m a runner)

    • I couldn’t taste the cottage cheese at all and Ben didn’t know it was in there! And he kept drinking it even after he found out. 😉 Not sure about drinking it before running…I’m definitely not a running expert. I think it would be a great post-workout drink though because of all the protein in it.
