Dessert Protein Shakes!

I have a sweet tooth and a desire to increase my protein, so what better way than to make my protein shakes dessert like! Thanks to Dashing Dish, I found a few more fabulous recipes to use and share with you all!! Enjoy!

  • Base for Shake:
    1/2 cupCottage Cheese (or 1 Cup Reduced Fat Greek Yogurt)1
    1 scoopProtein powder (something that has around 100 calories per scoop - I love Designer Whey™ Protein Powder)
    1-4 pktsStevia or low calorie sweetener of choice
    5-10Ice cubes (depending on how thick you like it, use less for a thinner consistency)
    1/2-1 cupWater (alter this according to desired consistency)
    Optional1/2 tsp xanthan gum (you can get this from most grocery stores in the gluten free section! Just a pinch of it makes your shake so thick and creamy)
    Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake (added to the base for shake)
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs peanut flour OR 1 tbs regular peanut butter
Servings: 1
Calories: 260 (add 40 calories if using regular peanut butter)
