"This tastes surprisingly like real sour cream. Try it on potatoes, Mexican dishes-whenever you want a creamy, piquant sensation."
Serving Size: 1 (345 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"Imade this by following the recipe exactly. I will make it again, but less lemon. It was way too lemony for my taste. Also, I used 1% cottage cheese. It could stand to be thicker. Next time I will use 2% cottage cheese. Thanks for a good idea."
"What a great find. I made this to use in a quick bread that I wanted to lighten in the fat department. This did the job beautifully and it tastes good enough to plop on your baked potato. I really loved the lemon kiss this has. I used vinegar soured skim milk for the buttermilk ask for. 1% cottage cheese and half fat mayo. This is a keeper for sure!"
"It's even better tasting than sour cream. And very easy to do. I used light mayonnaise and for the buttermilk I used milk and vinegar. This is thicker than fat-free sour cream. I really liked it. I used it in burgers but I'll have to find more recipes to use it. It would be great with nachos. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Potluck tag game"
"I made this last night to use in my menu of recipes today. Calorie savings per cup ( less than half = 233 vs. 492) and fat per cup ( less than 1/4 = 9.8g vs 48.2g). I made Recipe #90323, Recipe #276144, and will make my evening snack Recipe #154308 and still have a bit left over. I made as posted, leaving out the lemon zest and it was perfect! Thanks for sharing Sharon. Made for When It's Hot Tag Game."
"I made this last night, and it is wonderful. The lemon gives it such a fresh taste. I will definately make this often. Since I live out in the country, I don't make special trips to the store for things I am missing. I almost always have the ingredients for this in my fridge, so now when I run out sour cream, I can make my own!!!"
"This was great Sharon! Thanks for sharing!!! I used 4% cottage cheese as that's what we always buy because it seems to have more flavor and be softer and creamier. When I taste tested (licked the spatula from scraping out the blender) I could taste a hint of the lemon juice and feel the graininess of the zest, but when I served it on baked potatoes we couldn't tell it from the 'real McCoy'. DH didn't even realize I'd made it until I specifically asked, "Well? Do you like the sour cream?" and his response was..."Did you [i]make[/i] this?!" I will be trying this in lots of recipes that call for sour cream in the future as we almost always have cottage cheese in the fridge, but I usually have to plan ahead to have sour cream on hand otherwise it seems to go to waste."
