Apple Pie Protein Shake

Fresh apple comes together with honey, spices and vanilla in this protein- and fiber-packed shake that is reminiscent of apple pie a la[ mode. Cottage cheese isn't a typical smoothie ingredient, but it works really well by adding just the right amount creaminess and texture without overdoing it on fat and calories.]
