Chocolate Coconut Protein Shake

As I’ve mentioned several other times on my protein shakes, add a splash of a flavored extract to your Bariatric Protein Shakes can make allllll the difference in your survival through a pre and post-surgical diet. You can do this!!! And extracts will help.

For this Chocolate Protein Shake, we’ll add a bit of coconut extract to give you an “Mounds” experience. You can add almond extract for “Almond Joy” because sometimes you feel link a nut… ;)

I used Quest Chocolate Protein Powder for my shake and it came out so perfectly creamy. I also used 1/4 cup of cottage cheese…which might freak you out…but makes the texture just perfect. If you can’t handle the cottage cheese, replace it with plain Greek yogurt. It may have a tiny bit of a tang with the yogurt but will still give you the wonderful creamy texture.

For nutrition info, read notes below the recipe.
