Avocado and Cottage Cheese Snack

Snack Attack: Creamy Cottage Cheese Avocado

I'm always looking for quick and easy snacks that taste good. After telling you about my salty avocado snack idea, Sugar user The New Black made this snack suggestion. Since I love avocados ever so much, this sounded really delish.

  1. Cut an avocado in half. Use the side without the pit, and save the other half for later since the pit can help keep the green flesh from browning.
  2. Fill the hole with two ounces of lowfat cottage cheese (I like Breakstone's).
  3. Use a spoon to scoop bites right out of the avocado peel. You don't even need to bother with dirtying a dish.

This easy snack contains:

Serving Size 1/2 avocado + 2 oz. lowfat cottage cheese
Calories 212
Total Fat 15.9 g
Saturated Fat 2.8 g
Cholesterol 5 mg
Sodium 236 mg
Carbs 8.5 g
Fiber 6.7 g
Protein 9.8 g
Potassium 541.6 mg
Calcium 51.1 mg

I know it seems like a lot of fat, but remember, it's the healthy fat your body needs. It's very low in saturated fat, which is the unhealthy fat. So snack away!
