    Fat free cottage cheese has only 2 per 1 cup. That is nothing. Ricotta has around 5. If you mix both with protein it won't really matter. Plus it is whey protein in both cheeses

    not sure if this is possible unless extreme processing/microfiltering techniques are used. its pretty low carb to begin with so i doubt any manufacturer will adopt this concept. looks like we just gotta take the lactose with it

    Mine says 5 carbs for every 12 grams of protein.Coburn Farms brand and another brand, its a pink container, forget the name of it, dont have it here in front of me. When you are on a calorie restricted diet all this matters. Casein protein is the best protein before bed , as its one of the slowest digesting proteins . Fact When cutting Calorie counting is important, Ill keep eating Cottege cheese before bed due to the fact its slow digesting and imo tasty. Cinn mixed is good. cinn improves insulin function

    Cinnamon
    Ginger

    Do they even make fat-free ricotta? I've looked several times for it at the local grocery store, and have come up empty-handed every time

    Last night I took one cup of cottage cheese (I use small curd), 3/4 scoop of vanilla whey, some vanilla extract and cinnamon. I did actually enjoy the taste, but I just can't get over the texture so I just may stick to keeping cottage cheese for the home-made shakes.

    What kinda cottage cheese shakes do you make? I've had terrible success with making shakes with cottage cheese, they always come out tasting terrible.

    I've never actually made a shake with cottage cheese as the main protein source. I usually just use the regular ingredients for a homemade shake (skim milk, cocoa or frozen fruit, maybe some oatmeal, maybe some egg whites or whey, maybe some extra fiber), then just add half a cup of cottage cheese (or more). It blends in well and you can't taste it. Just another cheap casein protein source that's more dense than milk.

    i use the same base and add whatever im in the mood for. my base is usually:

    1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
    1/2 cup nonfat greek style yogurt (high protein, low carb)
    1-1.5 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (3g fat, 1g carb per cup)
    1/2-1 cup water
    1/4 tsp xanthan gum for thickness and s smooth consistency
    enough ice cubes to make it resemble a smoothie

    from this, ill add whatever. banana, peanut butter, strawberries, unsweetend cocoa, honey, or whatever im in the mood for. lastly, i own most varieties of BSL and true protein premium flavor packs. since these smoothies contain a lot of protein already, i just use the flavoring instead of the protein powder. although, adding 1 scoop of sustain peanut butter fudge protein makes this my favorite treat.

    • 2.5-3 cups of 2% milk
    • 1 scoop of vanilla whey
    • 1 cup of cottage cheese (small curd)
    • 3.5-4 tblsp of peanut butter (smooth)
    • 10-15 frozen blueberries
    • 1 cup of vanilla bean ice cream
    • BLEND


    The only thing that changes is sometimes I will use frozen strawberries, and every now and again I throw in a banana. But usually I get a liquid taste of a mix between a Reese's/Twix.

    I buy mine at Giant Eagle in OH, but they do have it in Va, and Maryland. Look hard for it and also ask the dairy guys... They may be able to order it for you. Good Luck

    The chives really helped make it edible
