Submitted by my sister, Kathleen, who was looking for a late night snack that wouldn't ruin her day's diet. She says: "This is a FANTASTIC snack I made up by adapting several other recipes. It's SO SO SO good and I can't even explain it. It's like mousse with little bits of nirvana in it." Nutritional breakdown: About 160 calories 16g carbs, 16g protein, 3g fat
1 packet Sugar Free Jello - Your favourite flavour 2 cups low- or no-fat cottage cheese 1 serving of vanilla protein powder 1 can or about 2 servings of fresh fruit 1. Blend cottage cheese and protein powder together in the blender. While it blends, boil one cup of water and If your fruit is canned, drain and run under water to rinse off excess sugars. Divide the fruit between 4 containers (I use the glad throwaway containers - they are just the right size). 2. When water boils add it to jello and dissolve. Slowly add the jello to cottage cheese/protein powder mixture and let the blender run for about a minute. 3. Pour the cottage cheese mixture evenly between the 4 containers. 4. Chill for 4 or more hours. Add a dollop of Redi-whip to the top and enjoy (or real whipped cream, come on - it's only 20 calories, 2g fat, less than 1 carb).
