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.
