My Favorite Protein (Milk) Shake

As some of you may know, I spent my high school years and college summers working at Emerald City Smoothie. My experience there drives me to put together the best tasting smoothies that are actually healthy. The past couple of years I have drank my fair share of green smoothies, so I thought it might be time to focus on another drink I could blend together after a work out.

I really liked the style of shakes that Dashing Dish puts together, but her use of stevia didn't enthuse me. However, I did learn about the use of cottage cheese (weird, right?) and peanut butter flour. So, here is a recipe I put together making use of similar ingredients from Dashing Dish.

- 1/2 cup cottage cheese (this gives it a milk shake consistency)
- 8 ice cubes
- 1 scoop Designer Whey Chocolate Protein
- 2 tsp. Raw Organic Honey (this was what I used versus the stevia she uses)
- 1 tbsp. PB2 Peanut Flour
- 1 tsp. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 tsp. less that Dashing Dish version)

Satisfying, yummy, healthy protein! Would you try cottage cheese in your smoothie?
