Strawberry Whipped Cottage Cheese Mousse

Cottage cheese has gotten a makeover from when our grandparents ate it with pears or pineapple on top. (Remember that?) Growing up in the 1980s, cottage cheese had a bad rep. I think because it was associated with "diet" food.
If you are like me - or most people- the texture of cottage cheese was just never appealing. But my, how things have changed. Cottage cheese is certainly having its moment right now. Thanks to social media,whipped cottage cheese is all the rage.
Its just as it sounds, cottage cheese that's been blended or whipped to a light, fluffy consistency- similar to yogurt. It has a delightful mouthfeel, with a perfect blend of creamy, tangy, and a little salty.
It's also pretty versatile and works well with a ton of ingredients, like fresh fruit and nuts, just to name a few. The possibilities for customising a humble pot of blended cottage cheese into your new favourite high-protein dessert are almost endless.
Because cottage cheese is relatively low in carbohydrates, many who are on the keto diet or another low-carb eating plan are including it in their diets.
Cottage cheese is really good for you. Not only is it full of protein and packed with nutrients, but it is low in calories. About 80% of the protein in cottage cheese is casein, which is slowly absorbed by your body, and is ideally consumed before sleep for muscle synthesis.
That makes cottage cheese the ideal evening snack.This cottage cheese mousse has 28 grams of protein, healthy fats and fibre as well as added vitamins and antioxidants, depending on what fruits and nuts you use as toppings.
To harness the true power of cottage cheese, you need to whip it. This goes especially for people - who believe they don’t like cottage cheese and I think the issue is related to texture. But when you give cottage cheese a trip through the food processor or blender, the textural conundrum goes away. All you’re left with is a creamy, airy mousse like treat.
Do you want a healthy, balanced sweet treat that still feels indulgent? Or are you looking for a way to add more protein to your everyday diet? Do you love the taste of cottage cheese, but not the texture?Then this quick and easy whipped cottage cheese dessert is definitely for you!
You will be delighted when you see it just takes minutes to make this rich,  silky, smooth, strawberry mousse that will instantly make your list of favourites.
You could eat this for breakfast, as a snack or a healthy treat or dessert. I can’t wait to try another flavor though it would be hard to beat strawberry in my opinion. Enjoy!
