Cream Cheese Substitute

Submitted by: DEAR.OH

Introduction

My daughter gave me this idea. I use it instead of margarine on my toast in the morning. You can also use it as a cream cheese replacement in recipes. It's not as creamy as cream cheese but it works just as well and has more protein and much less fat. I'm even going to try using it as a fat replacement in regular recipes to see if it works there too. My daughter gave me this idea. I use it instead of margarine on my toast in the morning.

    I've used this for ages -- its GREAT!! Also, if you need a more firm consistency, you can let the cottage cheese drain some through cheese cloth or a coffee filter before processing. Mmmmm. - 5/15/08

  • I was paying a lot of $$ for "farm style" cottage cheese, which is a lovely smooth block of creamy cheese. If I knew it was this simple to make I would have made it myself! Thanks! - 3/15/13
