I think this version of my cottage cheesecake is a little easier than the first version. This version adds 5 calories for the knox gelatin. The baked version adds 16 calories for an egg white. You have to bake the other version also, but you can decide for yourself what works for you!

Strawberry Topping:

125 grams of strawberries (40 calories)

1 Tbl. of Splenda (or 1 pkt of Truvia)

1/4 tsp. vanilla

Cut strawberries into small chunks.

Blend cottage cheese until creamy.  Add sweetener and lemon juice and mix well. Whip egg white into stiff peaks. Fold into cottage cheese mixture.  Line a small ramekin with foil strips, so you can pull it out and place it on a plate for the strawberry sauce.

Set aside and allow to cool before removing from ramekin.

(As you can see from the picture above, I did NOT let my cheesecake cool before pulling it out of the ramekin. Once I poured the strawberry sauce on, it started to lose its shape.)

Once your cottage cheesecake has cooled, lift out of ramekin by foil. Unwrap and place onto a plate. Top with cooled strawberry sauce. Enjoy!
