I’ve never been one of those people that can stomach typical off the shelf protein shake mixes. Too…chemical tasting for me!
I’ve tried a LOT of homemade protein shakes, but I needed one that was low carb, low sugar AND I wanted it to taste creamy.
Long story short, I found out that by adding a little cottage cheese to your protein shakes it changes the texture and the taste. It literally transforms drab into an almost Frosty like texture.
This shake is so weird. And so good. And so healthy. The cool thing is you can modify the ingredients to make your own taste buds happy! It tastes like a decadent fudge dessert….I mean, well, IT IS a decadent dessert shake!! Enjoy!
Creamy Chocolate Protein Shake
- 1/2 Cup Almond Milk (I like unsweetened vanilla)
- 1/2 Cup Crushed Ice
- 2 1/2 teaspoon high quality chocolate baking powder
- 2 Tablespoons Cottage Cheese
- 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
- 1 Scoop Collagen Powder, unflavored
- 2 to 4 Teaspoons of Sweetner*
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Start with the milk, crushed ice. Blend, blend, and blend some more. Then add the remaining ingredients.
Blend until smooth and creamy. The texture should be creamy and velvety!
