Chunky Monkey Protein “Milk Shake”

IMG_5702
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!
