Blood Orange and Vanilla Whipped Cottage Cheese Parfait (Sugar-free)
I've been loving cottage cheese lately because it's such a great high protein snack, and this blood orange and whipped cottage cheese parfait does not disappoint. Added bonus -- it's sugar free!
1.5 cups cottage cheese (my favorite brand is Muuna)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons monkfruit powdered sweetener
2 blood oranges
1. In a high speed blender, combine 1 cup of cottage cheese with vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons monkfruit sweetener and puree until smooth. Remove sweetened cottage cheese mixture from blender and set aside.
2. Add remaining 0.5 cup of cottage cheese to blender, along the pulp of one blood orange (peel removed) and 1 tablespoon monkfruit sweetener. Puree until smooth.
3. Peel and slice remaining blood orange. Place blood orange slices along the sides of parfait glass so that they will be visible on the outside of the glass.
4. Layer vanilla cottage cheese mixture and blood orange cottage cheese mixture. Best enjoyed chilled!
