Cabbage Blueberry Smoothie


    It might be blue, but there is definitely nothing sad about this smoothie. Tasters will be none the wiser that it includes the most unlikely of ingredients: cabbage. Compare brands of cottage cheese to spot the ones with the least amount of sodium. Greek yogurt can serve as a protein-rich stand-in for cottage cheese if desired.
