I guess I am no fun. I was just reading the “Favorite Comfort Food Thread” and everyone wanted an alternative to the fatty food. I thought we could post out healthy recipes on here and people could take a couple and try them.
My husband and I are doing South Beach so here is my recipe (BTW it is husband approved. So ladies don’t tell your hubby that this is healthy and he will never know:thumbsup:)
Sugar Free, Fat Free (or Fat Reduced), Full Flavor Cheesecake
South Beach Diet Approved Phase I
1 package of FF or Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
1 cup of cottage cheese
2/3 cup of hot water
1 package (4 serving size) sugar free jello (any flavor… my hubby’s favorite is orange, mine is lime)
1.5 cups of sugar free cool whip + 1.5 SF cool whip as a topping
Splenda to taste
Mix the jello with hot water. Set aside.
Mix cheese and cottage cheese together. Add the jello and hot water. Add the 1.5 cups of cool whip and splenda to taste. Put in pie form or I like to pour into cupcake forms (better for portion control). Refrigerate. Spread the rest of cool whip on top.
I am going to try this recipe with ricotta and see if I like it better. I promise this is delicious and only about 70 cal with a good amount of protein.
