I discovered this recipe at Hemlock Inn, a wonderful country inn in the Smoky Mountains, and liked it so much that I decided to tweak it to make it healthy as well as delicious. It takes a bit of time to arrange the layers of fruit, but my family agrees that it’s worth the effort. Enjoy!
Using the steel knife of a food processor or a blender, process until smooth:
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1 cup sugar
Add and blend until smooth:
2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
Layer in a 9x13 pyrex pan:
2 cups GrapeNuts or similar cereal (I use store brands.)
3 bananas, thinly sliced (about ¼ inch thick) (Assuming that you use medium-sized bananas, the slices should cover the crust.)
½ of the topping (I’ve found that it works best to spoon it over the fruit.)
1 pint of blueberries, rinsed and drained (You should have a single layer of berries.)
Cover and chill thoroughly before serving.
Makes 12 servings.
