Cottage Cheese Faux "Rice" Pudding

This recipe is from Parents Magazine. It's a healthier alternative to classic rice pudding, packed with a punch of protein and calcium.

Yield: 1 large or 2 small servings
Prep: 5 minutes plus chilling 15 minutes

1 cup low fat small curd cottage cheese
1 tsp instant vanilla pudding mix
3 tbs milk
2 tsp raisins
pinch of cinnamon

In a medium bowl combine cottage cheese and pudding mix. Add milk and stir. Add raisins and cinnamon, stir again until all ingredients are evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Tips & Tricks:
This can be served as either dessert, after school snack, or as a healthy breakfast! A much better alternative to sugared cereals or processed snacks.
