I ordered raw and grass-fed cottage cheese from a local farm and it’s the best cottage cheese I’ve ever had. I used most of it to make a lasagna (I use it in place of ricotta because it has a higher protein content). But I still had a ton leftover. I thought it would be interesting to make a protein packed, high fiber pudding with it. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I ended up loving it. It’s a bit thinner than regular pudding (if you’d like thicker, add less liquid to the chia seeds).

I don’t eat a ton of dessert, but it’s awesome to know that when I do, it’s super healthy.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Soak the chia seeds in either coconut milk or water until they gel. Either is fine, coconut milk will be creamier.
  2. Once the chia seeds absorb the liquid, add everything to a high powered blender. I use a Vitamix. Blend everything until completely smooth.

  1. How many servings does this make? Just one? I’m looking for something I can make on Sunday and take to work throughout the week. Does this store well?

      I’d say you could do 3 servings per the recipe, and it’d last fine for that many days.

  2. I made this recipe with low expectations. I don’t like cottage cheese or most recipes that claim to be a healthy alternative to an unhealthy food, but this turned out awesome!!! I had to comment becuase I am blown away by how good it is. I’m eating it right now with a bunch of bananas and strawberries cut up on top. Thank you for sharing!
