Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake

I scream.
You scream.
We all scream for ICE CREAM (for breakfast).

Who wants ice cream for breakfast? EVERYONE.

I have solved the world’s problem…AND it has over 30 grams of protein!

Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake
-1 cup almond milk
-1/2 cup cottage cheese (I use lowfat)
-handful of spinach (optional–but get in your greens, people!!)
-1 scoop chocolate protein powder
-1T cocoa powder
-1/2t mint extract
-1/2t vanilla extract
-6 ice cubes
-1/2t guar gum (opt-thickening)
-7 dark chocolate chips + 3 for topping

1.Put milk, cottage cheese,spinach, protein, cocoa, mint, and vanilla in the blender. Turn on high.
2. Blend until spinach is fully chopped.
3. Add in guar gum and ice. Blend until ice is chopped.
4. Blend some more. (I blend like crazy..it adds fluffiness.)
5. Throw in 7 dark chocolate chips. Blend until they are broken down.
6. Pour into a glass & freeze to chill.
7. Top with 3 more chips (trust me).

*deliciousness…

As you can see, you will lose the chocolate chips…
