Dec 29, 2008Fabulous Ricotta Fluff Stuff
1 large container of ricotta cheese
1 box SF jello instant cheesecake pudding
dollop or two of sour cream (to taste)
A little bit of milk to lighten it up (about a cup-add last and gradually)
Mix it all up and enjoy however you want it. I love it with strawberries! It's a great fruit dip or just eating straight out of the bowl.
Variation for fluff: Do whatever flavor of pudding you like and add a little milk to get the texture you like.
Warning: Walmart's ricotta is very grainy in texture and never mixes to anything smooth and creamy. Tasty, but strange.
Fabulous Trail Mix
1 jar peanuts
1 jar sunflower kernels
1/2 bag raisins or "berries and cherries"
1/2 small bag chocolate chips.
1 small bag macadamia pieces
1 small bag pecan halves
To this, I might add other nuts depending on what's on sale (walnuts, cashews, more pecans). I've also varied the fruit, too, so play around. Try to keep the proportions the same. It's so easy to load up the sweet stuff, but it's the nuts that are so valuable here. The balance makes the perfect sweet and salty snack and my daily breakfast. If proportions are kept, it's about 32g of protein for 8 oz.
Fabulous Custard -- full of protein, easy on new post-ops ~delicious!
3 cups milk
3/4 cup splenda
4-5 eggs (depending on size)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
handful of coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 375'. Beat eggs, nutmeg and vanilla together in baking dish. On the stove, bring the milk and splenda just to a boil, then stir together to the eggs. Bake for 25 min
NOTE: when the milk is coming near to a boil, you'll get a little foam on the top. Remove this foam before stirring into the eggs, or it will get a weird texture on top.
