Peaches and Cream Smoothie

This smoothie has it all – sweet peaches, a hint of vanilla, and LOTS of protein. The secret ingredient? Well it isn’t cream.  This delicious smoothie packs an extra nutritious punch thanks to the Kalona cottage cheese. Not only does it bump up the protein in the Peaches and Cream Smoothie, but it also gives it a rich, silky texture.

Paul introduced me to Kalona cottage cheese shortly after we started dating, and my mind was blown. I’d had cottage cheese before and frankly I could take it or leave it. But Kalona cottage cheese was a completely different experience.

How Cottage Cheese is Made

This Peaches & Cream Smoothie has it all – sweet peaches, vanilla, and LOTS protein. It packs an extra nutritious punch thanks to Kalona cottage cheese. | www.grownupdish.comKalona starts with organic milk from grass-fed cows on sustainable family farms.  Once the milk is HTST pasteurized, enzymes are added to start the curd-making process.  Over four to five hours, the curds continue to form inside the cheese vat.

Upon completion, the whey is removed and transported to a nearby processing facility where it is dried and converted to protein powder for use in other products. Then, the curds are cut, cooled, and moved to a new vat where the cottage cheese dressing is added.

The cottage cheese dressing is a blend of nonfat milk, cream, and Celtic Sea Salt ®, an unprocessed whole salt that is hand-harvested on the Brittany coast of France.  These salt farmers, in fact, have much in common with the dairy farmers who produce Kalona’s milk: they provide food in its most natural state by using traditional farming methods that sustain the region’s environmental integrity.

Why Grass-Fed Dairy is Best

Grass-fed isn’t just a term reserved for steaks and burgers! Milk from cows fed a diet of 100% grass or dried forage (hay) is what makes Kalona Supernatural dairy products so special. Not only does grass impart subtle flavors to the milk, it also increases the omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) content. Conjugated linoleic acids are a healthy omega-6 fat with anti-inflammatory effects and thus something you want MORE of in your diet.
