Mint Raspberry Smoothie

When you live in Los Angeles, you spend a lot of time talking about the traffic. This SNL skit of The Californians hits a little too close to home (it’s also hilarious, so I highly recommend you watch it.) While I'm not really one to experience road rage – which I accredit to the fact that I don’t spend too much time driving – being late can make me feel anxious. And the 405 freeway aka. the 405 parking lot, has the ability to make me late. That’s why I like to give myself extra cushion time when I have a morning commute.

In the past, an egg sandwich, overnight oats, or peanut butter toast were my typical on-the-go breakfasts, but more recently, I’ve been packing this Mint Raspberry Smoothie. It's not only super satisfying, it also feels like I’m spoiling myself on the mornings I make it. I love the sweet flavor from the raspberries, the hint of mint, and the creamy, thick texture.

Here’s the recipe:

Mint Raspberry Smoothie

1 cup soy milk
½ cup heaping scoop of reduced fat cottage cheese 
1 cup frozen raspberries
3 mint leaves
2 teaspoons maple syrup
