I wanted to pop in quickly to share a recipe with you all! I just whipped this up and plan to have it as dessert later, but I did sneak a taste and all I can say is: cheesecake!

Protein Cheesecake Pudding

Behold: an underexposed photo of Protein Cheesecake in an 7-year-old Ikea bowl

  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese (I used President’s Choice Blue Menu 1% fat)
  • 5 tbsp extra light/low fat cream cheese (I used 97% fat free Philadelphia)
  • 3/4 packet of sugar free raspberry jello mix (use any kind of Jello you want. You can also use chocolate or vanilla fat free pudding mix, but adjust the calories accordingly)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional, but if not, use a little less cottage cheese)

In a magic bullet/blender/food processor (it’s a complicated recipe, guys) mix ingredients together until cottage cheese isn’t curd-y anymore. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking (add the rest of the jello mix if you like it really tangy) Chill until ready to eat. Optiona (or not, if you’re me)l: top with shredded coconut and slivered almonds.

Makes 2 servings.
