Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake

10 Dec

I drink a lot of delicious protein shakes, but none of them are really original enough to call my own recipe. This one I had for a snack yesterday I think qualifies.

Okay, so it doesn’t look the best but….

It was so good! Here’s what I threw in the blender:

1/2 cup cottage cheese (I know it sounds gross but it’s a must!)

1/2 water

5-6 ice cubes

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

2 drops peppermint extract

sweetener optional** I don’t use it!

Be careful with the extract- a little goes a long way!

Most of my protein shakes I’ve adapted from Dashing Dish and they have all ended up being delicious!

My go-to favorite is chocolate peanut butter banana!  If the shake has more than 250-300 calories I generally have it as a meal replacement. If the shake has less than 250 I have it as a snack. The protein powder I uses has 100 calories per scoop. It’s called Designer Whey.

What are you favorite protein shakes? Protein powders?

 

This would be a perfect snack to have after the full body rep-based workout I completed today:

Burpees do not exist in the Iphone’s mind…..

The plank to push’s were brutal. Hate those!!! MC stands for mountain climbers by the way. If you don’t know what any of the moves are, feel free to just Google them. Just remember- I’m not a fitness expert- I just do what works for me!

Have a good rest of your Monday!

    hahaha i love how iphone does not recognize certain things. burpees, i’ve never noticed that one. i like how it autocorrects certain things like iphone to iPhone or youtube to YouTube! i love total body workouts like that one b/c they never get old. you’re too busy counting to 50 (in this case :-P) and then you get to switch moves! variety is key for me!
    i don’t really drink protein shakes but that one with the sprinkles on top is SO cute!
