Strawberry Coconut Pudding
¾ cup low-fat cottage cheese
¼ cup coconut milk or crème of coconut
½ cup frozen strawberries
¼ tsp splenda
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. This recipe is between a pudding and a shake. To thicken, add a scoop of protein powder. To thin, add a little water at a time until desired consistency is reached. Serves 1 large or 2 small
Personal notes: I really like to throw this in the freezer for about half an hour. It gives it almost a sorbet feel to it. Don’t let the cottage cheese throw you off; this is an absolutely delicious recipe. I’ve had my students try it, my neighbors try it, and several other people try it (many who swore they hated cottage cheese) and absolutely loved it.
This is nice served on top of fresh chopped fruit, such as apple, banana, pears, or berries or along with a serving of wholesome Fruit Crumble. This simple recipe makes a great bedtime snack and can be paired with Poached Pears, Homemade Granola, or the Wholesome Fruit Crumble.
I will include this evening the recipes for Poached Pears, Homemade Granola, and Wholesome Fruit Crumble.
