Add right into your blender 3/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, 1 serving of instant sugar free fat free pistachio pudding, 10 pistachios, and 1 cup of ice.

Did you know that both cocoa powder and flaxseed meal are great cheap sources of fiber?

Blend everything together until you have your chocolate pistachio protein shake!

Don’t like the taste cottage cheese? Don’t worry! Cottage cheese has practically no taste at all when combined with other ingredients and is packed with casein protein.

Pour your shake into your favorite glass and optionally top it with a crushed up graham cracker or anything else you want. Let us know what you top your chocolate pistachio protein shake with in the comments below!

Make sure to use peppermint extract and not mint extract as mint is more of a spearmint flavor.
