Jamie says: I’ve found a new favorite snack- or is it a dessert? I can’t decide. It’s cottage cheese with m&m’s. Part of me wants to put it in the snack category because cottage cheese is a healthy food. Cottage cheese has vitamin D and calcium, fiber, and protein. But, chocolate is dessert to me. I’ve decided I am going to think of it as a healthy dessert.
Regardless of its category, my recipe is so simple and so amazing. It only has two ingredients! One 4 oz container of Breakstone’s LiveActive 2% Milkfat Lowfat Cottage Cheese with Dark Chocolate m&m’s. (Hint: don’t mix the m&m’s too much or they lose their color).
It is fabulous! I love the sweet and salty combo.
Nutrition note: If adding some m&m’s gets you to eat a milk group food, I belive it’s worth the tradeoff of adding a sweet treat, because calcium is very important for bone health.
