As I’ve mentioned, Saturday morning is my favorite morning to experiment with breakfast! With gestational diabetes, most of my favorite breakfasts are a no-go, and I’ve been trying to get more protein into all of my meals lately. When my husband suggested we try to blend cottage cheese, I was extremely skeptical. But I’ve got to tell you, this “milkshake” we made is DELICIOUS! I have to admit, we have a really nice blender so it blender smooth and creamy. Yum! And it worked for my morning blood sugar read. Win-win! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons dark chocolate syrup
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/8 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups ice
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! You can sub lower fat cottage cheese or milk, if desired. You could also use almond milk or other nut butters instead of peanut butter.
- This recipe yields roughly 4 cups of milk shake, which serves (atleast) 2!
