I had no idea what to call this. The name sounds so complicated, and sort of disgusting…and boy, does this stuff ever look disgusting after it’s all mixed together! But it’s one of my favorite snacks of all time. It’s made of 5 simple ingredients and can be quickly tossed together (or you can put it together ahead of time and enjoy it later on the go, so long as you have a way to keep it cold). Full of protein, flavored with peanut butter, chocolate, and strawberry…total win.
You can play around with this to make it suit your needs. Don’t like cottage cheese? Use Greek yogurt instead (which I’m not a fan of personally, but hey, go for it). And I’ll let you know, if you kind of mash the cottage cheese with a fork as you mix everything together, the texture might not be such a big deal for those of you who don’t like it. This can be made without any special ingredients, if you want. I don’t know if you call sweetener a special ingredient, but if you don’t mind dark chocolate, even that could be left out. Not a fan of chocolate, strawberry, and peanut butter? Leave the chocolate out and have straight PB&J, or leave the peanut butter out and have chocolate-covered strawberry. But you should totally give all three a try together. It’ll blow your mind.
This is an S snack or dessert for Trim Healthy Mamas (find out more about the plan here). If you omit the peanut butter (or use defatted peanut flour in its place) and use low-fat cottage cheese, this would be a Fuel Pull (which means no significant sources of carbs or fats).
