I used to make protein shakes with protein powder. But did you know you can use cottage cheese instead?
It gives it that ultimate, creamy 'milkhake'effect and a delicious, full flavor. The one below is my favorite. Perfect as a quick breakfast or a pre-workout.
200 g - 7 oz Cottage cheese (4 % milk fat)
250 ml - 8.5 fl oz Milk *of choice
200 - 250 g - 7 -8.8 oz Strawberries (fresh or frozen)
Optional: zero kcal sweetener to taste
*This depends on your macros and your preference, you can use (unsweetened) almond milk, soy milk or cow's milk for example.

1. Combine the ingredients in a blender or use an immersion blender. Mix everything well.
2 . Add zero calorie sweetener (optional), extra water and/or ice cubes to taste.
If you make this ahead and store it in the fridge, stir it well before you drink it.
You can also add extra fruit, like a banana.
