Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Shake

I've been enjoying this protein shake for breakfast and as an awesome post-workout snack almost every day for the last 2 months.  Its easy to make, portable, and keeps me full for hours.  I admit that when I first saw shake recipes using cottage cheese, I was skeptical.  Now, I'm a huge fan!  It creates a thick, creamy texture that's more like a milk shake than a smoothie. 

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Designer Whey)
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup 2% cottage cheese
1 tbsp PB2
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 ice cubes

Add contents to blender and blend until smooth.  Sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired.
