This recipe is also low carb, low fat, sugar free, and a Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Pull!
If you are a Trim Healthy Mama, you may be wondering how a Peanut Butter Milkshake can be a Fuel Pull! The reason . . . one of my favorite secret weapons! (Ok, nothing so dramatic as that, but it is a product that I love!)
Peanut powder is one of my favorite products! The first peanut powder I ever tried was the Trim Healthy Mama Peanut Flour.
It is De-Fatted, which means 1/4 cup of this peanut flour only has 4 grams of fat, as opposed to regular peanut butter’s 32 grams per 1/4 cup!
Now don’t get me wrong – I’m the girl who loves to eat peanut butter with a spoon, straight out of the jar! Anyone else with me?
While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, it can be a calorie bomb, for sure! So we have Peanut Flour to the rescue!
For Trim Healthy Mamas, peanut flour means we can now have peanut butter flavor in our E and FP meals and snacks – awesome!
One idea I love is adding this peanut flour to plain greek yogurt and using it as a dip for apple slices! You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and apple!

I love to have this for breakfast, but really, it is good anytime! With the added collagen, this falls at about 37 grams of protein per serving, so it can easily be a breakfast or light lunch. (If you are unfamiliar with collagen, this article about collagen is a great read!)
Unfortunately, when I created this recipe I was out of the THM Peanut Flour (sniff, sniff), so I had to use the JIF Peanut Powder which can be found at most Wal-Marts.
It is good, but not as good as the THM brand. And while we are on that topic, I have found that Trim Healthy Mama’s products as a whole are much superior to any other brand.
I believe that is because they search high and low for suppliers/growers who meet their stringent standards. All that hard work comes through in taste! (And no, I was not paid to say that, just my own opinion!)
This Peanut Butter Milkshake Recipe is a Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mamas! (That simply means it is low in both carbs and sugar.)
However, if you are feeling the need for a bit more fat, you could use a heaping Tablespoon of natural (no sugar added) peanut butter in place of the peanut flour.
You could also add a Tablespoon or two of heavy whipping cream to really up the creamy factor.
But I love to have this as written and enjoy it as a Fuel Pull. Honestly, all the peanut butter flavor is there and the cottage cheese makes it seem rich and creamy. I don’t miss the full fat peanut butter or cream.
If you look at the nutritional information below, you will see that it lists 6 grams of fat, which is barely over the suggested 5 grams for an E or a FP.
However, unsweetened almond milk and low fat cottage cheese are both considered FP foods so long as you don’t go crazy with them.
The sisters themselves have mentioned at various times that those numbers are only meant as a guideline, not a hard and fast rule.
That being said, if you want this to remain a FP, then do not add any more fat with this recipe. (Or if you want an S, go ahead and add some natural peanut butter, as mentioned above!)
I often get a lot of questions about other peanut butter flour/powder products. The most common question is related to PB2.
Unfortunately, most PB2 contains sugar, so it is not the best choice. (I can’t say ALL of them do, but I believe all the types I have seen do contain sugar.)
I know people will ask, “Can you taste the cottage cheese?” I don’t think you can.
The cottage cheese is what makes it creamy, and I think it lends a light cheese-cakey flavor. I used to detest cottage cheese with a passion, but now I put it in nearly everything!
The collagen is optional, but I like to add it to bump up the protein content. You could also use your favorite protein powder in place of the collagen. (I bet this would be amazing with the THM Chocolate Pristine Whey Protein Powder!)

Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend until combined!
Please note that this milkshake, as written, is a FP, but if you add more fat or pair it with fat, it will push it over into S mode.
If you want an S milkshake, feel free to add 1 Tablespoon of sugar free natural peanut butter!
