Simple snacks

Some of you might be grossed out at the thought of this combination, but my mom used to make it all the time (well, she used the regular, sugar loaded jello) and it's always been a tasty treat for me. 

  • 1 package (4 serving size) any flavor gelatin.  (I used sugar free raspberry Jello)
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup canned fruit, drained.  (I used mandarin oranges)
Prepare Jello as directed and let set in the refrigerator for about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes (you want it to just start to set).  Add cottage cheese and fruit and stir until combined.  Place back in the fridge until firm (about 2-3 hours).

Turns out, this is also a figure friendly snack!  1 serving (about 1/2 cup) has only 85 calories, 2 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbs (because I used the sugar free jello) and 7 grams of protein.

Sorry Candice, no picture, I'm lazy tonight :)

  3. Just curious-- the Jello is sugar -free but doesn't the canned fruit have a lot of high-fructose corn syrup?

  4. Good question Rach, I just went and checked. Nope! Just mandarin oranges, water, sugar and citric acid. If I can't get fruit in it's own juice, I get light syrup and drain it anyway.
