A no-bake cottage cheesecake, full of protein and smooth. Gelatin is used here to give a firmer texture to cottage cheese, without increasing the calories by adding cream or mascarpone as in some recipes. Passion fruit, antioxidant and rich in vitamin C, brings a unique tangy flavor to this light cheesecake.
