Hello and happy Wednesday! I hope you are enjoying it. It is so warm here in NY and I am loving every second of it.
When I was writing my post about my pumpkin favorites I decided I wanted to share an awesome healthy, low carb, diabetic friendly pumpkin treat with you – so I chose my pumpkin cottage cheese.
I started making this a couple of years ago but I really perfected it this year thanks to the Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup! This is so yummy and satisfying, I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I do. ?
