Pretty ‘n’ Pink

I really don’t consider myself an extreme girly-girl, though Ryan may disagree with this statement entirely. I do love clothes, shopping, weddings and babies. However,  I’m not a huge fan of doing my hair or putting on make-up and can be found lounging in my Victoria’s Secret Pink sweats with my hair in a ponytail (or a nice high bun that Ryan likes to call my “poof“) most of the time.

One thing that I do share with typical girly-girls is my love for the color pink. Last night I made a delicious snack to bring to work today that resulted in the most brilliantly colored pink puff of tastiness.

After reading rave reviews of this concoction hailed by the women of Oxygen, I decided to try the recipe known as “Pink Fluff.”

To begin, simply prepare a packet of sugar-free jello, but only use one cup of hot water to stir into the packet. Do not pour in the other cup of cold water like the directions on the box indicate.

Put the jello in the fridge for an hour or two until it has set and become firm, then top the Jello with one cup of cottage cheese and blend baby, blend!

What a beautiful puff of pink fluff!

I topped mine with freshly sliced strawberries, almonds and walnuts.

The consistency was like a hardened mousse. It was definitely creamy, light and fluffy. For you cottage cheese haters, this is a fantastic way to use the curds because you would never know cottage cheese was in this bad boy.

This recipe was so simple and so tasty. I cannot wait to try it with sugar-free lemon jello. I think it might taste like lemon meringue pie. Drool…

Question: Do you consider yourself a girly-girl? Why or why not?

  3. I can’t wait to be able to eat cottage cheese again and try that!!

    I’m the same way, I really look like a slob most of the time LOL! If you can look good without makeup go for it right?

  4. Julie, do you blend with a simple spoon or in the blender to take away the cottage cheese chunks? Thansk!!
