Fruity Ricotta Smoothie Recipe is a great mid-morning or afternoon snack that it weighs in at only 136 calories, takes almost no time to make and is delightfully rich, creamy, and satisfying.
We have all heard about eating six small meals in a day with two snacks included in this recommendation.
So, if you’re like me and have to be on the go, what breakfast or healthy snack option will act as a “pick-me-up” for the middle of the day blahs?
I’ll go for a smoothie recipe anytime.
How to Make Fruity Ricotta Smoothie Recipe
My basic recipe uses only three required three ingredients, although you can certainly add more ingredients.
For example, you could add protein powder, wheat germ, and fruit like apples, pears, berries, etc.
And, if you want an even leaner version, you can exchange whole milk ricotta with skim milk ricotta.
One word of caution, though, is that by choosing this option, you might find a difference in the texture. My preference is to use only whole milk ricotta, which has always provided the best results.

I usually blend all of my smoothies with a Breville blender. It just makes sense when I need the extra power to crush ice.
Breville Control Blender – You’ll find this blender in most of my blending tasks because it is my “workhorse” to make smoothies (and soups) smooth and delicious. Works super with iced drinks and cocktails.
Mommy’s Time Out Wine Glass– Even moms need to take a break from a hard day’s work, homeschooling, blogging, washing/drying/folding clothes–you get the idea. So why not celebrate the fact that you are taking care of yourself by drinking your next smoothie in style?
