I came across a recipe the other day for a milkshake similar to the smoothie recipe that I am going to share here. It is winter and still cold even here in the south, so I don’t care to drink too many milkshakes! I tried this recipe this morning making it thinner like a smoothie. It was the perfect mid-morning snack since I ate an early breakfast today and needed something to hold me over until lunch.
1/2 c. low fat cottage cheese (or plain Greek yogurt)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp. sweetener (Might need more if using Greek yogurt)
3/4 c. almond milk
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. peanut butter flour
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. caramel flavoring
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth! Adjust the taste to your liking by adding more peanut flour, cocoa powder, or caramel flavoring.
If you prefer your drink thicker like a milkshake, add about 7-10 ice cubes to the mix and blend well.
