Cottage Cheese Cream & Pear Compote
Servings: 4
Prep time: 15

This Cottage Cheese Cream & Pear Compote is a low in fat and high in protein snack, and to my mind it makes a surprisingly light and delicious alternative to whipped cream. It is particularly good with fruit compote as suggested here. Give it a try.

Preparation

1. Prepare the pear compote as explained here.

2. Blend the cottage cheese and yogurt together until smooth.

3. Divide the cottage cheese mixture evenly and top with the pear compote and toasted almonds. Serve.


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup toasted sliced almonds
  • ¾-pounds medium ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into ¾-inch dice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 prunes, quartered, pits removed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 whole clove

Ann's Tips and Tricks

If you are using this cream as a topping, try adding a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup as you blend to make this even more kid friendly.
