Cheesecake Extravaganza!

>> Sunday, December 27, 2009


The holidays are in full swing, and if your house is anything like ours, it's full of all sorts of well meaning, edible gifts from family and friends - chocolate, squares, cake... the list goes on! I've put most of ours in the freezer, but it is admittedly tough to ignore their existence. So, when the holiday goodies are calling your name, try this delectable diversion as a very tasty, very satisfying, but very healthy alternative.

You won't believe this until you try it. Trust me on this! Cottage cheese and a blender... it's a miracle! These treats are high in protein, which leaves you feeling full much longer than a sugary Christmas cookie.

Note: even better than a blender is a Magic Bullet - it is the perfect size to make these recipes, and you can store the cups you blend in directly in the fridge or freezer. We got ours at Canadian Tire for about $40.

Thank you to Cara's Cravings for the inspiration!
