Berries and cottage cheese come together perfectly in this easy and healthy, no sugar added Cottage Cheese Parfait.
Cottage cheese is a wonderful ingredient to use for creamy desserts. It’s extremely versatile. Just throw it in the blender with other flavorful ingredients, puree until smooth, and there ya have it…a great base for delicious dessert like this Cottage Cheese Parfait.
This recipe is super simple. Just toss some low fat cottage cheese into a blender or food processor, add a little cinnamon, some vanilla extract, and liquid stevia to taste (I used 8 drops total). Blend until smooth and chill until you are ready to use it.
When you are ready to enjoy this easy treat, divide the creamy cottage cheese mixture into two small bowls and top with your favorite berry…or other fruit for that matter! For my Cottage Cheese Parfait, I chose to use blackberries. I find the sweet and tart nature of the nutrient rich blackberries perfectly complements the creamy slightly sweet cottage cheese layer. Blackberries are also a great nutrient rich option, packed with Vitamin C.
Another great thing about this dessert is that it lasts. The cottage cheese base stores well in the refrigerator for a few days. You can easily whip together a few batches and have a healthy dessert ready for you anytime you want! Just keep the berries on the side until you are ready to eat it.
Although this sugar-free dessert is delightful as is, it would be quite delicious if you wanted to add a little something extra to it…like almonds! If you do add almonds to your parfait, make sure they are toasted and not salted.
Either way, I’m sure you will enjoy this easy Sugar-free Cottage Cheese Parfait with berries.
