SWEET: Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup skim or almond milk
1 tbs sugar-free instant butterscotch (or vanilla) dry pudding mix
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3-6 packets stevia, or to taste (or sweetener of choice to taste)
light whip cream
Place everything in a blender, and blend until smooth.
Serve immediately or cover and place in the refrigerator until chilled — at least one hour.
Top with light whip cream and/or crushed gingersnap cookies if desired!
Both of these dips taste amazing with pretzel chips.
