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!
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.
I served this over sliced bananas for a simple dessert (platanos con crema) and it was wonderful. I can't wait to try this on more things! Thank you for posting Mama! Made for Bev Tag.
