Protein Shake Recipe Contest!

May 9th, 2012 - Giveaways


In honor of Dashing Dish’s Two Year Anniversary, I am holding a Official Dashing Dish Protein Shake Recipe Contest!  As you all know, I love my protein shakes! I’ve spent a lot of time making all kinds of variations of them and would love to hear your ideas for shake recipes! So, I thought, why not hold a recipe contest?

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been two years since I launched Dashing Dish! You guys have truly made this site what it is today! I’m so thankful for you guys and which is why I want you to be involved in some DD recipe creations, and give away one of my favorite blenders of all time!

Prizes: The winner will receive a Ninja Professional Blender and Publication of the winning recipe on Dashing Dish!  Runner up will receive their choice of a Dashing Dish Meal Plan.

How to enter: Using my shake base and submit the entry form located below:

Base for shake:

  • 1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese (or 1 Cup Reduced Fat Greek Yogurt, or Tofu)
  • 1 Scoop Protein powder
  • 1-4 Packets Stevia or low calorie sweetener of choice
  • 5-10 Ice cubes (alter according to desired consistency)
  • 1/2-1 Cup Water (alter according to desired consistency)
Rules: The recipe must contain the ingredients in the Dashing Dish Protein Shake Base listed above (it doesn’t need to be the same amount of each ingredient listed, but all of the ingredients must be there), and it must be different than a shake that has already been published on Dashing Dish!  Also, this contest is limited to two entries per person. 
Also very important: do not publish your idea in the comments below, only forms that have been submitted will be looked at.

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, be creative, and most importantly, have fun!

The contest will be closed on June 1st and I will announce the winner/runner up a week or two after that with a blog post.  The winner/runner up will also be notified by email. Thanks for looking and God bless!

Update: The contest is now over! Stay tuned for the winner in the next few days!

Oh my gosh, I am so excited about this. Protein shakes are my favorite. Totally going to brainstorm up some recipes. Question – do we have to use stevia or some sort of sweetener? I like to make my shakes without sugar and would hate to have to add it in just for the contest (but I will if I have to).

Nope, you can leave the sweetener out! :)
