Make An Easy Better For The Whole Family Dessert
When I think of sweets, I immediately think cake or ice cream! I know, so bad! However, there are times when I just crave fresh fruits. Cold sliced fruits – yum! One of my favorites is honeydew. Some of you may think it’s boring but I love it and I love it cold. Honeydew makes a great smoothie as well, try it with some mint-yum! I like to serve fruits during brunch or as a dessert after supper. Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t always the case. Of course we do cakes, chocolates, and ice cream too! We do however save that for the weekends.
So I opened the fridge one afternoon while preparing brunch and I totally forgot about this cottage cheese that I had bought a few days back. At first, I thought I’ll mix the cottage cheese (plain) with some honey and that’s it! Which you can do as well by the way. I always like to think how I can make our meals better and healthier without sacrificing all the good flavors, so I looked in the pantry and saw our bag of chia seeds.
Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke. Those are only a few benefits and I could go on and on about the endless benefits of it, but I’ll save that for another blog.
Here’s my simple concoction that’s sweet and better for the whole family.
COTTAGE CHEESE AND HONEYDEW SWEET DELIGHT
- 4 tbsp Smooth Cottage Cheese
- 2 tsp Chia Seeds
- 1 tbsp Buckwheat Honey (any honey will work)
- Honeydew (as much as you want)
I start with my handy dandy small mason jars. I think they’re just so cute!
Mix all together. I like to sort of spread it around the jar rather than the cottage cheese just being at the bottom. Remember, cottage cheese is thick (almost like a paste consistency) so it’s easy to spread out. When it’s spread out, you can taste and have all the ingredients in every scoop if that makes sense.
Add the sliced honeydew. Make sure they are cut small enough so you can enjoy a teaspoonful of it when you dig in.
