Berry Fluff

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups small curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 packages of sugar-free berry flavored gelatin (I used 1 Simply Delish Black Cherry and an off-brand cherry I had on hand. You will need about 1oz total.)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar substitute
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries

Instructions:

Add cottage cheese to a mixing bowl, and slowly shake in gelatin powder, mixing constantly to avoid gelatin lumps. Gently stir in frozen blueberries. In a separate mixing bowl, beat heavy whipping cream and sugar substitute. A powdered sweetener works best. Beat with whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the cottage cheese mixture. Berry Fluff can be served immediately but is best chilled for a few hours.

Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

  • 2 (14.11 oz) packages Organic Shirataki Penne with Oat Fiber
  • 1 can (14 oz) chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1 can (6 oz) sliced olives
  • 1/4 cup wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp onion
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup grated parmesan

Instructions:

Rinse Shirataki noodles in water, and let drain in colander. If not already pre-cut, chop canned artichoke hearts and slice olives. Toss together noodles, artichoke hearts, and olives. Mix vinegar, oil, and spices and pour over salad. Gently stir in grated parmesan cheese. Let the pasta salad sit in a refrigerator at least a couple hours before serving, though it tastes best if it sits over night. The noodles soak in the flavors and get softer with more time. If desired, drizzle a little more oil over the noodles before serving.
