Number of Servings: 1


    1/2 cup 2% Cottage Cheese
    1 scoop protein powder (I used ON vanilla whey)
    1/2 tsp Mint Extract
    2-3 packets of Splenda or stevia (sugar is fine too)
    5-10 Ice cubes (I got perfect consistency with 9)
    4 oz. skim milk
    1/4 cup frozen spinach to make it green
    (I promise you won't taste it, and that handful of spinach has a ton of vitamins in it)
    1-2 tbsp Sugar Free Instant Pistachio Pudding Mix
    whipped cream and a cherry to top :)


Could easily be enough for two people here and get the calories even lower. I used it as a big post workout treat. Happy St. Patrick's day!


Combine everything except whipped cream and the cherry and put in a blender.

pulse/chop settings work best for breaking up the ice and getting that milkshake consistency

Add the whipped cream and cherry to top. Do it. The presentation is lovely and don't whine about 5% of the ingredients being of the "cheat" variety haha

Serving Size: Makes a 16 oz shake, so there is plenty here to share if you wish
