Gingerbread Protein Shake


-1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese

-1/4 cup vanilla or plain protein powder

-1/2 tsp cinnamon

-1/4 tsp ground ginger (or to taste)

-1/2 tsp butter extract (or vanilla extract)

-1/2 – 1 cup Water (Alter this according to desired consistency)

-5-10 ice cubes (Depending on how thick you like it, use less for a thinner consistency)

-2-4 Stevia packets (or sweetener of choice to taste)

-Optional: 1 tbs low sugar maple syrup or maple extract, 1/2 tsp xanthan gum 3, 1/2 tsp butter extract

Notes: Cottage cheese is what makes the ‘MILKSHAKE’ consistency! If you are sensitive to dairy, you can use non-GMO tofu to get the same consistency!
