If you’ve been following the Trim Healthy Mama plan for long you know a favorite Fuel Pull treat is Cottage Berry Whip. I’ve mixed my scrumptious Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce with cottage cheese for this super simple Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese! A delicious snack or dessert perfect for summer strawberries and rhubarb.
If you’ve been visiting Oh Sweet Mercy regularly, you’ve probably noticed an abundance of recipes with rhubarb and strawberries.
It’s that time of year, what can I say? Rhubarb isn’t around forever so I have to take advantage of it while it’s here.
And, good strawberries aren’t either. You can, of course, get strawberries all year long at the grocery store. But, there’s just nothing like a freshly picked, locally-grown strawberry.
Sweet, juicy, and a bit of tanginess…I love them so much!
So, here’s how to whip a bit of summer into your cottage berry whip…
How To Make Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese.
As long as you have my Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce on hand, this tasty low carb, low fat treat whips up in under 5 minutes!
If you’re thinking of chopping up some rhubarb and adding that with strawberries, please don’t do that!
Rhubarb is T.A.R.T. it needs a lot of help to taste good in a sweet treat like a berry whipped cottage cheese.
Raw rhubarb also has a harsh, tannic feeling when you eat it. The thought of pureeing raw rhubarb with cottage cheese sets my teeth on edge!
It only takes half an hour (or less) to make a batch of my sauce. Pop some in the freezer for several minutes to cool it down quickly and it’ll be chilled for making this strawberry rhubarb whipped cottage cheese recipe.
But, for making a big batch to have on hand for a few days a food processor is perfect.
How To Include This Fuel Pull Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese In Your THM Meal Plan.
Since this recipe is a FP (Fuel Pull), it’s low in both fat and carbs. Fuel Pulls generally can be eaten with any THM meal type.
This recipe is made with dairy, however, and is not Deep S friendly.
While I like mine made with just cottage cheese, Low Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce, and a splash of vanilla, feel free to add more sweetener if you like.
Depending on how sweet you make your Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce you may find you also don’t need any additional sweetener. Or, you may.
Finally, each tablespoon of the sauce has 0.7g of net carbs. If you’re including this as part of a THM Fuel Pull meal, keep that in mind if you want additional sauce to keep your whole meal within FP guidelines.
Some THM Meal Inspiration For You…
Here’s an example of a tasty THM Fuel Pull meal with this delicious whipped cottage cheese for dessert:
- Large leafy green salad with bell pepper strips, broccoli, cauliflower, and a couple cherry tomatoes cut in quarters.
- 3 to 4 tablespoons Creamy Cajun Ranch Dressing.
- A Refreshing Cucumber Strawberry Smoothie to drink (it’s a very light smoothie).
- 1/2 cup Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese for dessert.
TIP: You could add an additional tablespoon or 2 of protein powder to the smoothie, but remember that in a Fuel Pull meal we need to keep our protein on the lower side so around 20 to 25 grams.
You can also enjoy this after an E meal for dessert:
- Small portion of lean baked fish with lemon wedges
- Herbed Quinoa
- Steamed green beans
- 1/2 cup Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese
Fuel Pull desserts work for regular THM S meals, too. It would be delicious as part of your breakfast:
- 1 egg fried in healthy fat
- Sauteed non-starchy veggies (zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms, a few onions, fresh garlic).
- 1/2 cup Strawberry Rhubarb Whipped Cottage Cheese.
As you can see, this easy and delicious THM FP treat is very versatile! Make a big batch to have on hand for quick snacks and easy desserts.
