Yes you can still enjoy the wonderful mouth feel of those cream dishes while watching your waist! This works like a charm!
- 8 ounces low fat cottage cheese
- 1⁄4 cup skim milk or 1⁄4 cup 2% low-fat milk or 1⁄4 cup whole milk, all work well
- Add all to a blender.
- Blend on cream or liquefy until smooth.
- Use in place of cream in a recipe.
I tried this recipe solely because I was out of cream, not because of the low calories. But after tasting how great it is, I think I will definitely be making and using this substitute more often in order to help reduce calories. It worked perfectly in my favorite ranch dressing. Thanks!
Do you think you could use this in coffee or tea as a cream substitute? Has anyone tried this?
This is simply AWESOME!!!! I served it with rhubarb compote today and it was just perfect. It is nice and thick just like real cream and tastes great, too. I will surely try this on many other things (like berries, cobblers, pies, etc.)as well and I would also luv to use it for baking. This is a real winner, mama's kitchen! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! Made and reviewed for Bevy Tag May 09.
