A Recipe I Love!

I don't usually have much to blog about, but I figured I should get something new on here for 2010. :) So in the spirit of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd post a recipe that I love! I've been making this for years as a nice healthy snack/dessert - it's filling, chocolately, and full of protein! What more can you ask for?

So here it is:

Chocolate Cottage Pudding

Ingredients
2 cups (16 oz container) fat free cottage cheese
2 cups skim milk
1 (six-serving) package chocolate instant pudding mix, fat free, sugar free

Directions
Mix cottage cheese, milk, and pudding mix in blender until smooth. It takes some work to get all the chunks out, but if you just keep stirring & blending, it will get there. Refrigerate until it's set (which doesn't take long). Makes 8 half-cup servings.

This is slightly thicker and tangier than regular instant pudding, almost like a cheesecake flavor. In fact, this would probably make a good pie filling or trifle layer! Half a cup makes a great snack or dessert - a full cup serving will really fill you up!

And since I like this because it's healthy, here are the nutrition stats for a half-cup serving:
Amount Per Serving:
Calories: 61
Total Fat: 0.3 g

Sodium: 40 mg

Hope you enjoy!
