AN INFLUENCER has divided opinions with her healthy dessert recipe – and some people are gagging at the thought.
Gracie Norton created “cookie dough” with cottage cheese.
Cookie dough is normally intended to be baked into individual cookies before eating, but there are edible versions made to be eaten as is.
Gracie’s concoction fits into the latter category due to the main ingredient being curdled milk.
“We’re gonna start with eight ounces – or about half a container – of cottage cheese,” she instructed in a TikTok video making the dessert.
“About a teaspoon of vanilla and two tablespoons of pure maple syrup.
“We’re gonna blend this together and then add the rest of the ingredients.”
Gracie scooped the blended cheese mixture into a dish before mixing it with a “scoop of protein powder and cup of almond flour”.
“The consistency is looking pretty good,” she said. “Now we just need to add our chocolate chips.
“And the recipe didn’t call for peanut butter… but I have to add just a little bit. Or a lot a bit.”
The influencer described the texture of her concoction as “just like cookie dough”.
And surprisingly, she said it tasted “incredible”.
She urged people to try the healthy dessert, but not everyone was convinced it would taste nice.
When questioned on whether it tastes cheesy, Gracie responded that she “doesn’t think so”.
“Everyone’s taste buds are different though,” she warned.
Some viewers said they couldn’t even think about cottage cheese without wanting to gag.
“No, the thought of cottage cheese,” one penned with green-faced emojis. “I can’t.”
Others who have tried the recipe said it was “disgusting” and a waste of time.
“I tried this,” one critic penned. “It’s gross.
“And it’s not because of the cottage cheese, it’s the grittiness of the flour.
“It does NOT taste like cookie dough.”
“Ya’ll, don’t be bamboozled,” another warned. “It’s not good.
“I made it, ate one quarter and threw the rest away.”
