Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Shake

Here's the Dish

If a thick, creamy, peanut butter and jelly milkshake sounds delicious to you, then hold on to your seat! This PB&J version of my ‘Dashing Dish Protein Shake‘ is going to rock your world! Eat it with a spoon or sip it with a straw.  Now you can have your peanut butter and jelly in a rich & creamy protein packed ‘milkshake’!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 5-10 minutes.


Put all the base ingredients in the blender and blend away until desired consistency is reached!


1/2 cupCottage cheese 1
1 Scoop protein powder (I used vanilla) 2
1 tbs Low sugar or no sugar added strawberry jelly or jam
2 tbs Peanut flour or PB2 (or peanut butter)
Pinch Salt
3-5 Stevia packets (or sweetener of choice to taste)
1/2 cup-1 cupWater (Alter this according to desired consistency)
5-10 Ice cubes (Depending on how thick you like it, use less for a thinner consistency)
Optional: 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (you can get this from most grocery stores in the gluten free section! Just a pinch of it makes your shake so thick and creamy)
Optional: A few drops of maple or peanut butter extract

1 Cottage cheese may sound strange, but TRUST me… this is what makes the ‘MILKSHAKE’ consistency! But, you may also use Greek yogurt in place of the cottage cheese. Also, if you are sensitive to dairy, you can use tofu to get a similar consistency.

2 In all of my shakes I use DESIGNER WHEY 100% Premium Whey Protein Powder! It tastes awesome, is affordable, and is 100% natural!

Katie's Tip!

This shake is a great meal replacement on a busy morning, or as a post workout snack!

Good morning!
This sounds so good but I can’t have milk products. Do you have any replacement suggestion for the cottage cheese that will still be “milk shakey”? Thanks!

i use frozen bananas in most of my smoothies. the taste isn’t very strong, but it gives the shake an amazing creamy consistency!

I would recommend frozen banana (1/2) in place of the cottage cheese or Greek yogurt!

I put cottage cheese in my green smoothie and everyone at work thinks I’m crazy!! But you’re right it makes it so think and creamy!! I’ve never tried PB2 but have heard lots about it! Might just have to give it a go!

Made this one last week. It tasted amazing! I used PB2. Is it the same as peanut butter flour? Thanks and have a great week!

I make pudding with lactous free milk. Since my youngest daughter is intolerant to dairy and seems to hate tofu. Could I use that in place of dairy in all shakes?

Could you use straight peanut butter extract instead of the Peanut Flour? I don’t have the peanut flour, but oddly enough have the extract.

Oh my goodness! This is my favorite protein shake of all. I made this for some friends and they loved it even more than me! Thanks for all the great recipes!

this shake is amazing! i didn’t have jelly on hand, so i just used peanut butter, ice, water, cottage cheese, and the Designer Whey Vanilla Protein mix. The peanut butter drowns out the protein powder so well, i feel i’m eating a treat!!

but i have a question; is it okay to weightlift in the morning, and then have this for lunch in the afternoon? thanks!

When you add peanut flour is that prepared with water or just the powder?

This is a great protein shake! Delicious! I added chocolate protein powder as I ran out of vanilla and added maple extract! I look forward to working out so I can have these delicious shakes after :)

I waited a week to get my peanut flour and xanthan gum to make this, but it was worth the wait! So creamy and yummy and filling. It tasted like dessert! I’ve also never had cottage cheese before, so I’m sold on it. Thank you!!!
