A surprising and refreshing snack so good even someone that doesn’t care for cottage cheese (me and my kids) enjoy it! Oh! And it is EASY!
This refreshing treat has only two ingredients and sweetener of your choice. I use an inexpensive food processor to whip it up in a jiffy.
I got this recipe from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. They are incredible and amazing! I would never have thought of combining these ingredients but it works.
Put 1/2 cup cottage cheese (use whatever percentage you desire – those on THM will want to use low fat).
Add 1/2 cup frozen strawberries. (You can use whatever frozen fruit you desire, although if you use all blueberries, it will be a bit carby and thus a THM E. We tried using peaches and it was a bit chalky, so we added strawberries and saved it. We also have tried frozen mixed fruit successfully for an E as well.)
Next add your sweetener of choice. I went with a doonk of pure stevia extract and half a tablespoon of sukrin: 1. I actually prefer the taste using all sukrin:1 or even xylitol but I have to watch how much I use in a day or I get intestinal discomfort.
Blend until smooth. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl once and finish blending.
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese (I used low-fat Daisy brand)
- 1/2 cup frozen fruit (I used strawberries)
- 1/32 (one doonk) pure stevia extract
- 1/2 tablespoon Sukrin:1
- Place all ingredients into the food processor and blend. Use whatever sweetener you prefer and in whatever amounts you like.)
Until next time, God bless,
