Low Carb Shake
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup egg substitute -- like "Eggbeaters"
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp whey protein isolate
whey soy, egg, whatevers at hand
2 tbsp splenda
or 6 Equal tablets crushed
1 cup crushed ice
or about 7 ice cubes
This is about *the* most popular shake recipe I've seen online. Caroline
says, "It's rich and creamy and yummy and sweet and satisfying, and easier to
make than Atkins ice cream. I promise you won't taste any of the individual
ingredients. It can serve as an occasional meal replacement.
Cover and blend on low speed for a few seconds, then on high speed for about 30 seconds.
When done it should be thick and smooth.
You can add a touch more water if it's too thick to blend.
**Variations: (each addition adds more carbs, so count them up!)
Coffee (***my absolute favorite***) : add a half tablespoon of decaf or your favorite instant decaf. You can also substitute strong cold brewed decaf for the water. Strawberry: add 1/4 cup fresh ripe strawberries.
Chocolate: add 1 tablespoon plain unsweetened cocoa.
Out of protein powder? It still tastes great but knocks the protein content down to only 14 grams.
