This protein shake tastes like blueberry cheesecake, packs 30 grams of protein and doesn’t contain protein powder. The source of the protein comes from low fat cottage cheese, and once blended with almond milk, frozen blueberries, sweetener and vanilla, tastes just like a milkshake. The tang from the cottage cheese mimicks the tang in cream cheese which gives cheesecake that signature taste. I love the brand Good Culture for this protein shake recipe. Be sure to grab the 2% fat container and not the 4% or whole.


My favorite sugar substitute is Truvia. I get the big box of the packets at Costco. The recipe calls for a tablespoon of sugar substitute and that comes out to six of the packets. Truvia packets are the only sugar substitute that agrees with my digestive system. You can use whatever you like. You may need to use less than what the recipe calls for based on taste.


It’s best to use frozen blueberries for this recipe. When frozen, the blueberries double as soft ice pellets which make the texture and temperature of the shake perfect. If you have fresh blueberries, put them in the freezer after washing. Avoid adding ice as that will make the shake icy and not creamy. The creaminess of the shake is divine. I get the big bag of frozen organic blueberries from Costco for cheap.


Grab this small blender from amazon. It is the perfect size for this shake and barely takes up any room. Sometimes its hard to make a single serving protein shake in a big blender because there’s not enough ingredients in the cavity. I use this same small blender for making my light alfredo sauce and my light cajun shrimp pasta sauce. Be sure to grab it!
