I was introduced to this stuff by my mom at my baby shower last summer. Don't be fooled by the texture. You really wont notice it and it's delicious...with crackers, potato chips, and probably anything else you normally dip in ranch. I'd imagine it's not all that bad for you either.
Cottagae Cheese Ranch Dip
- 1 32 oz low fat cottage cheese
- 1 8 oz Neufchatel cheese (or cream cheese, I just normally go the "healthy" route because I can't taste a difference)
- 1 packet ranch seasoning
Soften the Neufchatel cheese and then cream it so it'll blend with the other ingredients better. Add in the cottage cheese and the ranch seasoning, mix it all together. (I used a hand mixer to see if it would break up the cottage cheese chunks and it didn't, but my mom mixes it by hand.)
So easy, right? According to MyFitnessPal 1/4 of cup of this dip comes out to about 64 calories. It's almost twice as much if you use cream cheese.
