taste this tuesday: protein shake from katie + dashing dish

I love absolutely LOVE protein shakes! In fact, I love them so much that I have this shake (or some variation of it) everyday for my breakfast! Shakes make a great breakfast because they take minutes to whip up and they are easy to eat on the run! (Yes...I said eat! I eat my shakes with a spoon because I make them really thick! Mmm!) I also love protein shakes for breakfast because they a refreshing way to start the day and they always keep me satisfied until lunch!

You may have noticed that I use cottage cheese in my shakes.  I know this sounds strange, but I am telling you, you do not taste the cottage cheese! In fact, it gives the shake a slightly salty taste, which when paired with the sweetness of the Stevia and saltiness of the peanut butter, it creates a sweet and salty heaven! Cottage cheese is also great because it makes the consistency really thick, so I feel like I’m having a milkshake! 

These shakes are all natural, (as long as you choose maple extract over the pudding and use a natural sweeter) and they are packed with protein and nutrients from the protein powder, so you can feel good about eating something that is also delicious! There are also many ways you could vary this recipe to put your own ‘spin’ on it, such as adding flax seeds for a healthy fat source!

I like to make my shakes ‘extra’ tasty by putting a few toppings on them!  For toppings, I like to use a 1/2 of a Chewy Protein Granola Bar crumbled on top, or even 1/4 cup cereal, like Peanut Butter Pows from Whole Foods! Protein shakes can be an easy and healthy breakfast that is ready in minutes.  I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t enjoy a creamy milkshake. :)
Get this fabulous, healthy recipe from this lady.
