Candy Cane Shake

This is an even better way to say “Merry Christmas” than the Kardashian Christmas card – but than again, what isn’t? If you’re looking for a dessert that’s essentially the holidays in a glass, you’ve come to the right place. Oh, and it’s a little healthy, too! Recipe and image via Dashing Dish.


1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese

1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder

2-5 peppermint extract

2-3 packets Stevia

1 tbsp Sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix (dry)

5-10 ice cubes – depending on how thick you like it

4-6 oz cold water

A few drops red food coloring for candy cane swirl!
