This sauce is so delicious....thick and creamy with a satisfying flavor, but is best eaten immediately. So have everthing else prepared, then puree the sauce just before serving. Offer it at the table in a small pitcher to pour over fruit, pudding, cake , or anything else that strikes your fancy. This will keep, well covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days. From the Moosewood Restaraunt Low-Fat Favorites Cookbook.
- 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 1 cup nonfat yogurt or 1 cup low-fat yogurt
- 1⁄3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Whirl all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- Serve chilled.
Update July 2011:
Ive now made this again blending the cottage cheese thoroughly and serving it over some berry compote. It looked absolutely company worthy and had the same awesome taste. Its a keeper for sure!
Original review May 2009:
This is absolutely wonderful! The taste is incredibly yummy with the vanilla adding a really nice touch to the cottage cheese and it also comes together so quickly and easily. I used this as a topping for crumbled cake bits and microwaved the whole mixture for 2 minutes. It was so good!
I dont have a blender and I dont mind the chunks from the cottage cheese, so I simply stirred everything together, but when making this for guests, Id use a hand-held blender for getting a more sauce-like texture.
Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous recipe with us, Sharon! I am sure to make this again!

This was delicious. I just left the food processor running while I did something else for a bit and it came out quite smooth if not "silky". I used it on a dessert of hot cooked apples and it was really wonderful and would compliment so very many things. I can see myself keeping this on hand nonstop in the summer for fresh berries, fruit salad dressing and etc. DH put some on his French Toast this morning in place of syrup and he loved it. Don't make more than you'll use in a day or two at the very most. While it was nice this morning it was better last night on the apples.
This was excellent and I whipped it up in a flash! I followed the recipe to a T, including using pure maple syrup. It was a wonderful topping to fresh strawberries! Thanks for a great and very refreshing topping!
