Pumpkin Cheesecake Whip

Its Pumpkin Time!

Its fall! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pumpkin! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, really anything pumpkin says fall to me. After starting THM I was worried I wouldn’t be able to enjoy my favorite treats, but I am finding that there is a way to THM just about any recipe!

I don’t know how many of you have found and enjoyed the Cottage Whips in the THM recipe books? My husband was sold on them the first time I made one. His favorite so far is the chocolate peanut butter, but we have tried lemon and key lime. I found the lemon and key lime harder to get the sweetness and flavor right in, but they were still enjoyable.

Well since its fall I decided its time to make a pumpkin cheesecake version. This may well become one of my favorites and I could probably eat it year round, but then pumpkin wouldn’t be special to fall. So I will have to restrain myself.

My first cottage whips were made in my blender, but I found that after I had blended them until they were silky smooth, that it was very hard to get the cottage whip out of the blender while trying to navigate around the blades. I bought the food processor unit that fits on my blender and WOW, it’s so much easier to navigate my rubber scrapper around the inside of the food processor since I can pull the blade out first. Here’s my suggestion: if you are going to do the THM diet, invest in a food processor, it will make your life easier.

The cottage whips in the THM cookbook are a single serving and you only use one cup of 1% cottage cheese and are labeled a FP. My 2% cottage cheese has 2.5 grams of fat per ½ cup serving, so my gut would tell me this still falls into FP land, but I am leaving it up to you to decide for yourself. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Whip (4 - ½ Cup Servings)

  • 2 tablespoons 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese

  • 16 oz. 1% or 2% (LOWFAT) Cottage Cheese

  • ½ Cup Pure Canned Pumpkin

  • 2 TSP Pumpkin Pie Spice (more or less to taste)

  • 2 TSP Cinnamon (more or less to taste)

  • 5-6 TBS Sweetener of Choice (or until you like the flavor) (Gentle Sweet)

  • 1 TSP Pure Vanilla

Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth, sweetening to taste.
