If you're craving a healthy yet flavorful meal or snack, but don't have time

provide a quick, great tasting on-the-go meal you can make anytime. Perfect
for breakfast, Granola Glee features pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, granola
and real maple syrup for a fresh take that challenges traditional granola
combinations. Waikiki Delight is a delectable combination of dried pineapple,
unsweetened coconut flakes, chopped toasted macadamia nuts and crystallized or
candied ginger. For an afternoon pick-me-up, Instant Wasabi combines crispy
onions with wasabi peas to become a crunchy snack with a spicy twist.

The Everything Bagel combines toasted dried onion, dried garlic flakes, sesame
seeds, caraway seeds, poppy seeds and flaky sea salt for a savory, crunchy
little-bit-of-everything topping for Friendship cottage cheese. Delicious and
versatile, it could even be used in place of butter on whole wheat toast or a
rice cake. Savory Summer features crumbled bacon, chopped cherry tomatoes,
diced avocado, chopped red onion, fresh basil, a squeeze of lemon juice and
extra virgin olive oil. If you're need of a guilt-free indulgence, Strawberry
Decadence includes graham cracker crumbs, sliced fresh strawberries and shaved
chocolate curls.

Unexpectedly delicious and easy to prepare, Friendship's new recipes
incorporate a range of ideas from breakfast to dessert, including starters and
vegetarian dishes that add healthy, flavorful twists to classic dishes, and
exciting new recipes.

Putting a spin on Spinach Artichoke Dip, Friendship has lightened this staple
for any large gathering by using cottage cheese, giving it fluffiness and full
flavor without the fat. In a new take on a traditional Italian classic,
Friendship's whipped cottage cheese takes the place of ricotta in Pasta A La
Norma, creating an incredibly authentic tasting tomato and eggplant pasta. The
eggplant and whipped cottage cheese meld together, enhancing the creaminess
and elevating the dish. Triple Berry Streusel Parfait proves that it's not
just savory fare that benefits from Friendship's healthy, flavorful products,
and gets a revelatory upgrade: 1% Friendship is blended with sour cream and
sugar to create an incredibly smooth, exquisitely rich cream.
