Peach Pie Protein Shake
Rich and creamy Peach Pie Protein Shake recipe packed full of protein and tastes like a slice of peach pie in a glass!
How is that recipe title for a tongue twister?! Say that 10 times fast! I was SO excited to spend some time this month creating a fun recipe using Friendship Dairies cottage cheese for two reasons: 1. It’s National Dairy Month, and 2. Friendship Dairies is a somewhat local company for me (only a two hour drive from Rochester)! There is nothing better than fresh fruit in the summer and I love picking up some juicy peaches at the farmer’s market on the weekends here in Rochester. I decided to combine some fresh peaches with cottage cheese to create the ultimate protein shake. The combination might sound weird, but you just have to trust me on this one (just this once). The cottage cheese really gives it that creamy consistency!
I picked up this cottage cheese at Wegmans one day and it honestly tasted better than any cottage cheese I have ever had. Friendship Dairies cottage cheese is known as the Original Superfood and is high in protein (1% milkfat has 15g per serving and 2% has 14g). It is a good source of sustainable energy at any time of the day! They have held the title of a “superfood original” since 1917. This cottage cheese is so versatile and you can mix it up with just about anything for a healthy treat (as I did in this Peach Pie Protein Shake). Hello protein and hello vitamin C!
Fun fact: Friendship Dairies website has a newly launched Superfood Generator that is really awesome. It is an inspirational online tool that helps people discover the endless delicious possibilities of cottage cheese mix-ins, and their nutritional benefits. Visit here and follow the instructions to create your very own personalized Superfood recipe – it’s really fun to do! You pick all of your add-ins and then the generator tells you how much protein is in your creation via your Super Summary. While there, be sure to check out all the incredibly tasty and easy recipe ideas.
This Peach Pie Protein Shake is a treat for your taste buds any time of the day! I had it as an afternoon beverage, but it would be perfect for an after-workout recovery drink, a healthy breakfast (as a meal replacement), or a mid-day snack. Check the consistency of the shake before pouring into serving glasses. If you find it not to be your desired thickness, then add more milk or ice cubes to dilute it. Enjoy this shake and happy dairy month to all!
- ½ cup Friendship Dairies low-fat cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder (optional)
- ¾ cup fresh or frozen peaches
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons of sugar (or sweetener of choice)
- 1 cup milk
- 5-10 ice cubes (use more for thicker shake)
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until it has reached a smooth and creamy consistency. Garnish with a slice of peach, if desired. Pour into glass(es) and serve.

Cottage cheese in a shake? My mind is blown! Fantastic recipe Ashley! Since I had a sipof a Chick Fil A Peach shake, I’ve had such a yearning for them – but this would be so much healthier and with all that protein – a definite crave buster! YUM!
Thank you, Shashi!
I have all of these ingredients (minus the peaches, but I have tinned peaches – I´m so going to make this! .-)
You will LOVE it!
A peach smoothie pie, I would love that. Actually, I used to eat cottage cheese with peaches on top all the time. Really delicious!
It’s a great combo!
Dear Ashley, This sounds absolutely delicious! I have not had cottage cheese in a while and now I am in the mood for some. Great smoothie shake! xo, Catherine
Thanks, Catherine! It’s so good!
My husband eats cottage cheese with a spoon! This sounds like a great way for me to incorporate more cottage cheese into my diet. If it tastes like peach pie, I’m in! 🙂
It does!! Especially with the spices! Thanks, Eva!
Where in Arizona can I find this cottage cheese? I’ve never seen it here.
Suzanne, I looked it up and these are the states it can be found in:
District of Colombia
Sorry about that! 🙁
Ashley, this looks absolutely fresh, light and incredible for breakfast. If I had peaches in my kitchen right now, you know where I’d be – making this!
Oh thank you so much, Kristi!
This is brilliant! Sounds delicious too!
So light and refreshing and PEACHY!
We’re starting to get decent peaches, so this recipe is so timely. Love the idea of a peach pie shake, and with extra protein? Score!
I’ve been having a smoothie every morning since the warm weather hit! Love this flavor idea – sounds so good!
This looks perfect! I have been working out more recently and trying to get my pre and post workout protein drinks. This sounds delicious and would be a nice switch from my normal and bland drink. It is nice when you can give your body what it needs and at the same time actually enjoy it!
I totally agree! This doesn’t taste healthy at all!
I looooove cottage cheese, this is perfect!
This is pure genius! What a great way to add protein to a shake and I love everything peaches these days!
What a great idea to make a shake with cottage cheese
I love that you added cottage cheese to this shake! Sounds wonderful!
I’m loving the sound of this 🙂
We eat so much cottage cheese around here, it’s ridiculous, but I haven’t really tried incorporating it into recipes like this. Such a great way to get some protein into a fruity smoothie!
I cannot believe this has cottage cheese in it! It looks like such a decadent treat.
I’m so looking forward to peach season next month!!
Wow! I’m so excited to try this recipe. I love cottage cheese but I never thought to put it in a shake!
I’m not a huge cottage cheese fan but I’d love to try this one from Friendship Dairies! I love adding it to my smoothies for extra protein. 🙂 And this peach pie shake looks awesome!
This shake looks amazing Ashley – and I love the idea of putting cottage cheese in a shake! Genius!
This looks so great Ashley! Can I tell you I hate cottage cheese and still wanna make this? You win.
This is such a great idea! Classic cottage cheese and peaches are awesome, why not in a shake too? Pinned.
I’ve never thought to put cottage cheese in a smoothie or shake, but it makes complete sense! What a great way to add a hit of protein into a delicious looking peach shake.
I would never have thought to add cottage cheese to a smoothie, but it makes perfect sense!
This looks like the perfect dessert or breakfast!! Love the peach pie flavor!
I am craving peaches, your shake looks delicious! Nettie

Hi I was wondering if you could use no fat Greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese for the person who couldn’t find it in Arizona ?
It’s definitely worth a try! It should work fine. -Ashley
