I’ve been thinking about cheesecake lately. I decided to try a version made from cottage cheese. (Click here to view the No Bake version of Cottage Cheesecake).

Strawberry Topping:
125 grams of strawberries (40 calories)
1 Tbl. splenda
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Cut strawberries into small chunks. 

Strawberries and Splenda in Saucepan

Combine strawberries and sweetener in saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Hot Strawberry Sauce

Strawberries and sweetener will start to melt and form a sauce. Cook for approximately 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and let cool in refrigerator until cheesecake is ready.

Cottage Cheesecake Ingredients:

113 grams (1/2 cup) cottage cheese (Daisy 4%=110 calories; 2%=90 calories)
3 Tbl. splenda
1 Tbl. lemon juice
1 egg white (16 calories)

Blended Cottage Cheese

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.

Pour cheese mixture into the ramekin and bake for approximately 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until knife comes out clean.

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!

If using Daisy 4% cottage cheese- 166 calories

This breaks protocol a little bit because of the use of an egg white.
