    Hi Dana,
    You can buy xanthan gum at most grocery stories in the baking isle. If you can’t find it at your regular grocery store, try looking at a natural foods market.

    As far as protein powder we HIGHLY recommend Trutein (http://www.truscience.com/). You can use coupon code SUPERSIS10 to get 10% off your order.

    Where can you get the Xantan gum? Does it matter which protein powder you use? Is there one that is better? Soy or regular?

    Xanthan gum makes the shake thick and creamy. It really doesn’t taste the same without it! You could just up the protein powder to a full scoop and omit the cottage cheese 🙂

    why do you need Xanthan gum?? what does it do – can you leave out the cottage cheese?? if you are dairy free?? would you need the Xanthan gum still

    Recipes are easier to follow when you use universal measurements. Your recipe calls for half a “scoop” of protein powder. That’s not so helpful. I have 2 kinds of protein at home. One came with a small scooper, and the other one came with a scooper that more than doubles the size of the small scooper. How much to use? And of which one? ??

    How large is your scoop?
