Dessert….yum! It’s even better when you know that you are eating something that isn’t going to cause a spike in your blood sugar level or to pack on the pounds.
This recipe is just something I’ve played around with and am love with it. So easy and it so does not taste like ‘diet’ dessert.
This is firmly in the S category as it is loaded with good healthy fats.
My kids love these as well….when, I’m willing to share.
(I apologize for the picture….it does not do the dessert justice….it tastes way better than it looks)
Yup, I do! And you know what? It’s so good! It adds a tartness that makes it just like cheesecake. Trust me! (Plus, it’s a great source of protein for a dessert)
All you need to do is mix up the cottage cheese, PB, cocoa powder add a bit of vanilla and stevia to taste. How easy is that?
Once everything is mixed, roll the mixture into bites size pieces and put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes. (Less if you are impatient)
If you are a THM mama that is a fan of Skinny chocolate, go ahead and make a batch and keep it melted…then dip these guys into it once they are firm and stick them back in the freezer for a bit before eating them.
So, now you have this yummy truffle with a nice chocolate coating. Make sure you make them after the kids go to bed, trust me!
