PB&J Pie Parfait...A Guest Post from Sensual Appeal Blog


I am excited to share a recipe from a healthy living blogger that I adore, Kammie over at Sensual Appeal Blog!  Kammie is a young college student living in the city of Chicago. She has fallen in love with healthy living and loves recreating sinful recipes into simple, guilt-free treats. A sweet tooth should not be tamed, it should be satisfied healthfully! She enjoys blogging about food, fitness, and other healthy living tips. Check out her blog at www.SensualAppealBlog.com 

PB & J Pie Parfait
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
  • 5 drops chocolate stevia
  • 2 Tbsp PB2
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Erewhon Raisin Bran cereal
  • 2 Tbsp jam (no sugar added)*
Take the cottage cheese, stevia, pb2, and cinnamon in a bowl and mix together until combined. Put the mix in a food processor (or blender, but I prefer a food processor – it gets much more fluffy this way) and process until the mixture becomes fluffy. This is the making of whipped cottage cheese. In a cup or bowl, begin layering – a bit of the cereal/granola followed by whipped cottage cheese topped with jam and granola. Continue if layering like this if you’re making a bigger batch or simply want more layers. You can also omit the layering and just put the yogurt on bottom, topped with granola and jam, like in a photo I posted on Twitter when I first made this.
note: you can use any flavor of jam for this, but I recommend using ‘no sugar added’ variety. I got mine from the Amish country, but I’m sure you can find some at your local health stores. Make sure it’s the ‘no sugar added’ variety, where the only sugar comes naturally from the fruit (Beware of artificial sweeteners! Read the labels!).
