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.
- 1 cup raw and grass-fed cottage cheese (preferably raw)
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- 1.5 cup coconut milk or water
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- Soak the chia seeds in either coconut milk or water until they gel. Either is fine, coconut milk will be creamier.
- Once the chia seeds absorb the liquid, add everything to a high powered blender. I use a Vitamix. Blend everything until completely smooth.
