  • 10 mins Cook time 30 mins Total time 40 mins Author: Taylor Serves: 1 Ingredients ½ Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese ½ Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (about 3 Tbsp) * ¼ tsp Pure stevia (or sweetener of choice, to taste) 2 Tbsp Natural almond butter ** 1 Tbsp Unsweetened coconut flakes Instructions In a small food processor (I use my Magic Bullet) combine the cottage cheese, protein powder, sweetener of choice and 1 Tbsp of almond butter. I find it works best to layer them in that order, starting with the cottage cheese and ending with the almond butter. Blend until everything is completely mixed and the cottage cheese has gone nice and smooth. It is quite thick, so it may get stuck in the food processor, and you may have to stop and scrape the sides down multiple times until it’s creamy. Scoop out into a small bowl and place into the freezer for 30 minutes – 1 hour to let it get nice and firm***. While the “cheesecake” chills spread the coconut flakes onto a small baking tray and toast them in a 400 degree oven until they turn a light golden brown, about 1 -2 mins They burn quickly, so keep a close eye on them! Top with additional 1 Tbsp of almond butter (if using) and toasted coconut flakes and DEVOUR. Notes * I prefer to use casein protein powder over whey, as it is thicker, but whey will be just as yummy!** You can use only 1 Tbsp if you want to make this even lighter, but it’s much better with 2!*** You can also eat it immediately, I just think the texture is closer to cheesecake once it chills and firms up. 3.2.2641
