Ingredients for Your Keto Cottage (or Cream) Cheese Pudding
Cottage Cheese Pudding (2 servings)
You will need:
- Dry cottage cheese (large grain) — 100 grams
- Thick sour cream — 80 grams
- Eggs (size 1) — 2 pieces
- Erythritol — 20-25 grams
- Almond flour — 15 grams
- A pinch of vanilla extract or powder
- Butter for greasing the molds
You can replace sour cream with a mix of cream cheese and cream (50 and 30 grams respectively).
Simple Steps to Make Your Keto Cream Cheese Pudding
If you have silicone molds, you don't need to grease them. If you're using ceramic ones, grease the bottom so the pudding doesn't stick.
Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour the mix into the molds and microwave at 1000 watts for 1.5 — 2 minutes.
After microwaving, let the puddings cool down a bit. Use a thin knife to take the pudding out of the mold and flip it onto a plate. Add a bit of sour cream on top and enjoy!
The total estimated time for preparing this keto cottage cheese pudding is approximately 15 minutes.
Variations for Your Keto Cottage Cheese Pudding
Want your pudding to be the star of your keto menu? Here are some tips to get it just right.
- Add 15 grams of melted chocolate or a couple tablespoons of cocoa to the mix.
- Instead of erythritol, use a pinch of salt, herbs, and dried garlic.
P.S.: If you'd like, you can bake the pudding in the oven at 150-160 degrees Celsius using a water bath. Aim for the pudding to be almost completely firm — this should take about 20-30 minutes.
Don't worry if you don't have almond flour, the recipe will still work.
