Emily’s Cottage Cheese Fruit Dip

So many of you have asked for this recipe, I thought I would put it in thcottage cheesee newsletter. This is what we served at Family Day in the fruit parfaits. It is such a simple way to have a healthy, protein filled yummy snack, and great for kids who don’t like the tangy taste that plain Greek yogurt gives the other fruit dip recipes we have done before. Apple season is just getting started! What a great way to eat healthy and stay on track. Love you!! Em

12 oz low-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop of Vanilla UMP Protein Powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Handful of chopped nuts (optional)

In a Nutra Bullet or similar blender, blend cottage cheese until it is smooth and creamy. Add UMP and vanilla. Continue to pulse until smooth and everything is blended, alternately, you can stir in the protein powder by hand as well. Stir in the chopped nuts. Serve chilled with fruit.
