Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders (other than whey protein) in this recipe. If you try a whey/casein blend, you may need to add a little milk to keep it from getting too thick. See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.

Neufchâtel cheese is marketed as “1/3 less fat than cream cheese” and can be found in most supermarkets (in the US, at least).
