So we survived Hurricane Sandy!!! Yay!
Not that I had any doubts. But still, I’m grateful my house wasn’t damaged, my electricity stayed on. I’m at home today as the mayor has asked us not to drive until crews get the roads clear.
So I thought this would be the PERFECT opportunity to share this neat recipe I’ve been making. I can’t claim to be the inventor of this but I honestly can’t remember where I saw this before. Anyhoo…whoever invented it, wherever you are, thank you!
Nik’s Banana Peanut Butter Protein “Minute Pudding”
(Makes 2-4 servings, depending on your surgery age)
1/2 c. cottage cheese
1 scoop Chike Banana Magic protein powder (or banana protein of your liking)
2 tbsp PB2 (powdered peanuts, 85% less calories than peanut butter!)
2-3 tbsp milk (the better your blender, the less milk you need)
No-calorie sweetener, to taste
Put everything in your blender and mix for a full two minutes (kind of like the Triple X Method for blending shakes).
Transfer into appropriate amount of cups. Refrigerate unused portions immediately. Or share. Either way!
I won’t lie. The cottage cheese taste does not magically disappear in this. But it sort of reads like cheesecake. Which, to me, is a good thing. Don’t use too much sweetener though. I’ve been there, done that. Not a pretty scenario. If you feel so inclined, top with sugar or fat-free whipped cream and enjoy!
While I don’t give full nutritional stats, I can tell you that each of MY servings (for me it’s 2 servings) of this stuff have about 23g of protein. Can’t be that with a stick!
