Everyone’s familiar with the classic diner combo of cottage cheese and pineapple (or peaches).  Whether you’re a fan of cottage cheese on its own (or with fruit) or not, here’s a new way to use this   with this lighter creamy white dip recipe. We pureed reduced-fat cottage cheese with white beans to make a satisfying, low-calorie dip. Enjoy it as a healthy snack or serve it for game day. Enjoy!

Lighter Creamy White Bean Dip

2/3 cup reduced-fat 2-percent cottage cheese
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
One 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons good quality olive oil
Pinch smoked or sweet paprika
Chopped chives, for garnish

Combine the cottage cheese, vinegar, thyme, beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a food processor. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Chill 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with the paprika and garnish with chives.
