Time for another little treat. If you are tired of meat and want a change, then you can substitute cottage cheese for your protein. The following recipe is a good tasty dessert for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Cheesy Mock Cinnamon Apple Pie

Cheesy Mock Cinnamon Apple Pie


1 Apple (core it and weigh it to calculate your fruit calories)

1/2 cup (113 grams) Cottage Cheese (calculate your calories)


Sweetener to taste (In this example, I use 3-4 packets of Truvia)

Chop up your apple into fine little pieces and cook in the microwave for 1-1/2 minutes until soft. Sprinkle with a liberal amount of cinnamon. Add your sweetener. I use between 3-4 packets of Truvia. Remember: the cottage cheese is not sweet. Adjust the amount of sweetener to your taste. Stir cinnamon and sweetener into the apple bits and allow to sit for a minute or two.  A small amount of sweet juice will form at the bottle of the bowl. Combine with cottage cheese.

This dessert will equal your protein and fruit for one meal. Please be sure to calculate your calories.

Cottage Cheese:

I love Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese. It seems to be the most pure of the brands.

Here is the breakdown for one serving:

4% milkfat- 113 grams (1/2 cup)- 110 calories, 5 grams of fat

2% milkfat- 113 grams (1/2 cup)- 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat

Servings: 1

HCG Exchange: 1 protein, 1 fruit
