Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Today was one of those days that I just wanted something different for lunch.  I liked what came out, so here's the recipe.

2/3 cup 2 % cottage cheese
1/3 cup 1 % milk
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (Thanks Dad for picking with us!  We're still enjoying the tastes of August!)
1 tablespoon maple syrup (The darker the better)

Drop it all in the blender until smooth.  Put in your favorite mug and enjoy.

Here's the approximate nutrition facts. I typed the ingredients into the nutrition calculator over at SparkPeople. It pasted a bit funky... but the info's still there.
