I bought Bethenny Frankel’s new book, Naturally Thin, on Tuesday night after getting home from my cruise. On Wednesday I ended up trying (and modifying, of course – who follows recipes?) three of her ideas. I changed this one so much that I think I can call it my own:
Maggie’s Faux Choco-Banana Cheesecake
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 2/3 cup lowfat cottage cheese (can use up to 1 cup depending on how much you want)
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- splash of extract (I used vanilla, but anything would work)
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon stevia (or 2 teaspoons other sweetener – sugar, honey, etc.)
- 1 square of chocolate, crushed up (I used Ghirardelli’s 60%); or 1 tablespoon of crushed up chocolate chips
Put everything in a mini food-processor and blend. Serve chilled.
This is perfect for dessert or a snack at any time. It really satisfies a sweet tooth but it’s not heavy! It’s crap-free and wonderful.
What’s your favorite flavor of cheesecake? I think mine is this one 🙂
