Reds-yet another way

I'm working on getting more protein into my diet-so I thought if I could combine my reds with protein it would be just perfect. The other day I tried

1 serving non fat greek yogurt

1/4 c applesauce

1 scoop reds.

It was tastey-almost like a smoothie!

A new way to try Miracle Reds

This week I was traveling, but made sure to bring my Miracle Reds with me. Though I didn't have my usual apple juice and water bottle to shake and go with. I stopped into a store and picked up some cottage cheese. I'd been a little short on protein the whole trip and thought-why not just add the reds to my cottage cheese. It was pretty good. A little sweet, but that had to do with the ratio of reds to cottage cheese. I ate two servings of cottage cheese so I could get 30g of protein, but ate half of it without the reds, then added a scoop to the cottage cheese. This was in case I didn't like it, wanted to get a little protein before hand.
I was talking to my friend Karen and she said maybe try adding the reds to Ricotta cheese-just a bit smoother? Then I thought you could mix reds and ricotta, get some lady fingers or pastry tart, spread the mixture in and top with fresh blue berries, strawberries and raspberries-any fruit you want really. This would make a nice fruit layered desert-healthy too! Sounds good to me! let me know if you guys have any other thoughts.
