Brownie Batter Shake (and shh, it's healthy!)

Do I even need an intro for this, with a title like that?
And pictures like this, even from my crappy iPhone camera:
Yeah, I think not.
This is super chocolatey while not being overly sweet (you could obviously change that pretty readily if you just added some stevia or sugar) and truly does taste like brownie batter in liquified form. And it's low-fat, full of vitamins and minerals from the almond milk and pumpkin, and has lots of protein (gotta have that in our shakes!) Give it a try and you'll slurp it right up!
So thick, it's basically ice cream!

1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
6 ice cubes, or more to desired consistency
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
1-2 stevia packets (optional)
1/4 tsp xantham gum (optional)

Topping: 37 calorie brownie (!)

You know the drill…blend it all up and slurp!
With the protein powder, it's all about 300 calories, 20 grams protein!
