These creamsicles are all grown up! Imagine the nostalgic taste you loved as a child, blended to creamy perfection with all of the protein you need for an extra energy punch.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Darigold whipping cream

  • ¼ cup sugar (optional)
  • ¼ cup coconut shavings (optional)
  • 1 mandarin orange peeled and sectioned (optional)

Instructions

Whip cream in a medium-size bowl until peaks form and whipped cream stays separated when a spatula is drawn through the middle; set aside. Place cottage cheese, gelatin and sugar in a blender and process until smooth. Fold cheese mixture into whipped cream. Pour into serving bowl and refrigerate until set (about 35 minutes).
