Butter Pecan Shake – THM S

butter-pecan-shake-2

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

2-3 tsp of super sweet blend, or 4-5 tsp gentle sweet blend

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!
