Blueberry kiwi smoothie is a fast and easy snack to make.
Blueberry and kiwi provide ample vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, while low fat or cottage cheese provides us with slow-digesting protein for the prolonged feeling of fullness.

In a shaker or any suitable pot, put blueberries - they can be frozen or fresh ones. Fresh is, of course, better, but frozen blueberries are available all year long ...
Peel off 1-2 medium-sized kiwis and put them into the shaker.
Add some cottage or low-fat cheese. Cottage or low-fat cheese are a good source of casein protein - a very slowly digesting form of protein. Not to mention the abundance of calcium in such cheeses ...
Add some water and using a hand blender, mix everything. Beware of blueberry stains - they are hard to clean. Whenever I make such smoothies, I wear a black shirt - if I can't clean them, at least nobody can see them :o)
Smoothie is over.
During summer put the shaker into the fridge for 30-40 minutes and it will be like ice-cream.
Depending on the amount of water, you can make a smoothie that can be eaten with a spoon or drunk directly from the shaker.

Various shakes and smoothies are great snacks that can be made very quickly - that is why I like them. And if you look at the content in the above table, we have combined excellent sources of vitamins, minerals, fibers, antioxidants, etc. with a great source of lean, slow-digesting casein protein.
