Maple, pumpkin, nuts, caramel–these are the flavors that I love year round. However, it is fall so I’m indulging in them even more now. Tonight I made a rich, butter pecan shake that was so good that I had to grab my computer and immediately share it. If you like this one, you might also like my Turtle Cheesecake Shake or Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake.
Butter Pecan Shake – THM S
2 tbsp chopped pecans
1/2 cup Daisy lowfat cottage cheese
1/2-2 cups of ice (depending on how much ice you like)
1 cup unsweetened original almond milk
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla pure extract
1/8 tsp maple extract
1/8 tsp butter extract
1 doonk of stevia if needed or to taste
Blend cottage cheese and whipping cream first to get a very thick and rich base. Then add remaining ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. If you like it with a little more ice, blend for a shorter period of time. Finely chop a few extra pecans for a garnish if you’d like. Enjoy, and Happy fall y’all!
