Cake Batter Protein Shake

I found this recipe on Pinterest (original recipe here) and wasn't expecting much when I first saw it but my curiosity was peaked at the use of cottage cheese and sugar-free jello so I gave it a shot.

Calories: 187  |  Protein: 35  |  Carbs: 5   |  Fat: 2
  Serving size: 1 shake
You'll need:
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
3-5 drops butter or almond extract
1 tbsp. vanilla sugar free instant Jell-O pudding mix
3-5 packets sweetener (I used Splenda)
1/2 cup - 1 cup water (alter for desired consistency)
5-10 ice cubes (also alter for consistency - use less for thinner shake)
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum (I used guar gum and works just as well)
Sprinkles for topping
Then you'll:
Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into glass, add sprinkles and serve.
Happy Blending!
