I’m kind of on a mini cottage cheese kick!

I first started loving cottage cheese during my Body For Life days. For the perfect protein plus carb combo, which is what the program is all about, Bill Phillips would have you mix yogurt with some cottage cheese and have it for a snack.

I fell in love! And I even enjoy the texture of cottage cheese.

However, for this treat, I’m calling Orange Creamsicle Cottage Cheese Jello protein bowl, I wanted to blend it and make it smooth!

So, I mixed up this sweet bowl by blending the cottage cheese with yogurt and adding some sugar free orange flavored jello mix!

YUM!! I need some graham crackers to dip in it, but all I had was these DELICIOUS mini stroop waffles. But also, I’m totally content eating it with a spoon!

The ingredients in the protein cottage cheese orange creamsicle bowl

  • Fat free cottage cheese– The fat free cottage cheese I’ve been getting is only 10 calories less than the lowfat cottage cheese. It’s also harder to find. Not every store carries it. So, you can certainly use low fat cottage cheese, but if you want to save a few calories, go for the fat free version.
  • Non fat plain Greek yogurt. I use this a lot, and it’s what I had in my fridge. But, you could also use vanilla Greek yogurt. If I had the vanilla, I would skip the stevia.
  • Sugar free Orange jello mix– don’t over use this! I only used a teaspoon. The first time I tried this, I used a tablespoon, and it was too much. The orange tasted more like orange candy, and not smooth and vanilla-like a creamsicle.
  • A pinch of powdered stevia. I have little tiny packets of stevia that I like to add to oatmeal. (you can see it here). It’s lasted me a long time, and I like having it for little treats like this cottage cheese bowl.
  • Low fat milk, just to get the mix to blend in a blender. I doubled the recipe just to make it easier to blend in a small blender to get it smooth. It would not blend with half a recipe, there just wasn’t enough food to push around the blades.

So, if you are going to make this, share it or save half for later- or of course, take the full 270 calories for the whole bowl and you’ll even get 50 grams of protein! WOAH!! Plus it’s zero WeightWatchers Personal Points!

Notes

𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: I doubled the recipe just to make it easier to blend in a small blender to get it smooth. It would not blend with half a recipe, there just wasn’t enough food to push around the blades.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE!
USE ANY FLAVOR JELLO MIX AND JUST COTTAGE CHEESE!  IT WILL ALSO TURN OUT TERRIFIC!

  1. I use fat free cottage cheese, whatever jello powder, Chobani zero sugar flavored vanilla or whatever matches the jello powder. I dont even use the tablespoon of milk and stevia is not needed. This is great for people with high cholesterol and are watching their blood sugars. Its my go to dessert.

  2. 5 stars
    I loved this. Ate it with apples as a treat. I didn’t even add the sugar substitute and it tasted great. Will definitely make this again.

    1. YUM!! This is definitely one of my favorite recipes on the blog. I just did it again yesterday with some lemon flavored crystal light as the flavoring, and then blueberries on top! SO GOOD!

  3. 5 stars
    I loved this and so did everyone that I made try it. I used a food processor because I thought it would be easier.

    I made mine with 2 cups cottage cheese, 2-5.3 oz cups of cherry flavored Greek yogurt (oikos triple zero), and 3/4 teaspoon SF cherry jello powder. I didn’t need the stevia due to the yogurt being sweetened or the milk because I used the food processor and I like this kind of stuff thick. I didn’t need as much jello powder since the yogurt was flavored.

    This can be made with as many flavors of jello powder you can find and the texture or consistency you like.

    Thanks for the new snack idea!

    1. this sounds absolutely delicious and I like the idea of using the different flavor of the Greek yogurts and then adding the additional Greek yogurt to make it to the right amount. Has anyone tried freezing him to make a little bites in mini muffin tins?
