So a friend recently gave me a Vita Mix. A! Vita! Mix!  I know! It's pretty awesome and I'm having fun blending all the things. Today I was craving something chocolatey so I tried something I've been meaning to try--pudding made with cottage cheese in the Vita Mix! It turned out even better than I hoped! The Vita Mix made it all thick and perfectly creamy. And cottage cheese is the perfect vehicle to taste like cheesecake with a much lower calorie count that cream cheese (and a nice hit of protein!)



Easy (healthy) Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding

2 cups Cottage Cheese
1 (small) package dry pudding mix (I used sugar free chocolate fudge)*
2-4 T liquid of choice (almond milk, milk, cream)
Toppings of choice (crushed nuts, whipped cream, sprinkles, etc)

Blend Cottage Cheese in Vita Mix until smooth and creamy. Add 2-4 T of liquid if needed. Add pudding mix and blend quickly as it will start to get even thicker. Move to container with lid so you can refrigerate. Serve topped with nuts/sprinkles/whipped cream or nothing at all, it's delicious and has a nice hit of protein.

I used 4% cottage cheese and 2 T of heavy whipping cream and my nutrition stats came out to:

per half cup serving:
146 calories, 11 g protein, 14 g carbs, 9 g fat

Of course, if you used 1% cottage cheese and almond milk the fat and cals would be much lower!

*If you don't have any boxed mix or prefer not to use them, I think adding cocoa powder and sweetener of choice would work well too. Since the cottage cheese is thick, you don't need whatever thickeners are in the powder like you would when adding the mix to milk.

That's how it tastes too! My mom even wanted to know if there would be some left for her, and she usually passes on my "creations." Cheesy

I like this.  Does it have the same texture as regular pudding?

Oh man - that does look good, and normally I hate cottage cheese!  If you can get it creamy and tasting like pudding, I am in!

Yeah if you didn't know I really don't think you'd say "cottage cheese", I really think you'd just guess a cheesecake flavor!
