It's super easy to throw some fruit, whether frozen or fresh into a blender, add a little milk, some protein powder and off you go, right? Well, NOT always! Some concoctions just come out wrong! Here's one of my favorites for a recovery shake right after a hard workout at the gym!
6 ounces of 1% Organic Milk (may substitute Unsweetened Almond Milk)
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1/2 of a small banana or 1/3 of a large banana
5 medium-sized strawberries, washed and tops removed
2/3 - 1 cup of ice cubes (depending on your preference for shake thickness)
Blend together using a blender and enjoy!
Makes 1 Serving
(These will depend on your brand of protein powder, and cottage cheese - please keep that in mind)

He & She Tip - If you like the taste of cinnamon and chocolate or cinnamon and cayenne pepper together, you can add 1/4 teaspoon to rev up your metabolism!
Hope you enjoy it!
