Tiramisu Smoothie (LowCarb, S, FP)


Tiramisu Smoothie (Sugar Free, Low Carb, S)
  •  2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream (S) OR 2 tablespoons half and half (FP)
  • 1/3 cup low fat cottage cheese (I use Daisy Brand 2% for low fat and low carb option)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract **
  • 1/4 tsp rum extract **
  • 1/4 tsp. orange extract** 
  • 2 tablespoons Gentle Sweet  or 4 teaspoons Truvia or Pyure  (or more, make this taste like a dessert to you)
  • 1 tiny pinch of salt (when chocolate and stevia are involved I always use salt)
  • 1/4 cup strong brewed and cooled coffee (I make it stronger  than usual or just add in some instant espresso or good quality instant to get a stronger flavor) 
  • OR just add 1 tsp espresso powder instead of the coffee for a quick fix 1/2 scoop (2 tablespoons)  Pristine Whey Protein or on plan plain protein powder (I love THM's)  

Optional 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum 8-12 ice cubes (I don't like icy--just very cold)



**Good quality flavorings are essential to this recipe.  I used Kroger brand rum flavoring, organic vanilla extract, and Central Market orange extract.
