Sweeter than Serenity: Bring on the Sprinkles

Bring on the Sprinkles

It's no secret that if you love what you're eating, you're probably going to stick with your diet (or not-diet if you truly enjoy what you're eating!). I love playing around with recipes in order to find foods that I love that also don't break the calorie bank! My latest adventure in recipe tweaking was a Cake Batter Protein Shake. I found a recipe for this, but I tweaked some things to make it healthier!

Cake Batter Protein Shake
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey Vanilla)
3 packets of Stevia/Splenda
1 teaspoon imitation vanilla extract
2 drops imitation almond extract
1/2 cup water
5-10 ice cubes
Sprinkles (optional)

Directions: Combine all ingredients except for the sprinkles in a blender and blend until smooth. Top with sprinkles.

If you aren't into using protein powder but use other powders, like Shakeology or meal replacement powders, this recipe will work for those as well!

God Bless!
