Nordica Power Smoothie

NLF_Smoothie

This delicious and nutritious protein packed smoothie is creamy and filling thanks to the addition of Nordica Cottage Cheese! I had never tried cottage cheese added to my smoothies but I was amazed at the results and the wonderful creaminess and silkiness it added to my daily smoothie. Even better is that Nordica offers a Lactose Free option which is perfect for me as I have a lactose intolerance. I also really enjoy eating this cottage cheese spread thick on my favourite multigrain toast – so good anytime!

Nordica Cottage Cheese goes with all of your favourites, from smoothies and toast, to fruit and pasta. It is low in fat and has many healthy benefits, including calcium, Vitamin D and protein. Nordica Cottage Cheese is also gluten and nut free, certified Kosher, and available in Fat Free, 1%, 2%, 4% and Lactose Free. It is also available in On-the-Go containers in Plain 1%, Summer Berry & Peach which make great additions to lunch bags!
