OMG! So, for my whole life I thought I hated cottage cheese. I finally grew up today (41 years old) and decided to give it another try. I AM IN LOVE! I ate some plain and it was amazing, then I added a halo (mandarin orange) and it was incredible!
I have found my newest midday snack. It's high in protein and so YUMMY!
Do you love it?

    Yes, so creamy and delicious and with so much protein.

    I like it with green salsa and blue tortilla chips. Well, these days, green salsa and celery.

    There was an active thread a month or two ago with hundreds of add in options, both sweet and savory.

    I have recently found this out, too. Actually just finished cottage cheese and a halo for breakfast. Frozen berries are great in it, too.

    lemurcat I love your avatar! <3


    I've always loved cottage cheese! It's my go-to source of protein, other than meat.

    I haven't had it in a while, but you guys are making me crave it :) I used to love the fruit topped cottage cheese packs you can buy in the store. Might have to pick some up.

    I used it as a substitute for ricotta a while back in a spaghetti dish and it was yummy. I might have to do that again.

    I love cottage cheese!
    I like to use a stick blender to blend it smooth and add sweetener and different extracts like rum or maple and eat it like dessert. I also sometimes add PB2 & cocoa. (I use a tall cup that came with the blender)
    I also love it in smoothies for some extra creaminess and protein. I also eat it plain or with fruit.

    I mix in a scoop of chocolate protein powder, sugar-free syrup, and a little water to help with mixing; it's like a chunky pudding

    Toss it in the freezer a few hours after you blend it with all your mix ins, becomes a high protein ice cream like dessert! (:

    I love cottage cheese. Recently one of my favorite ways to eat it is with avocado and tomato. It can make a great ricotta substitute. I also use it in oatmeal pancakes and egg casserole.

    I have a weird relationship with cottage cheese, I can't stand it plain but if I throw some fruit in it (my favorite being pineapple and peaches) I could eat it all day! Funny how that simple change makes me LOVE it.

    I like to add cinnamon and pecans to my cottage cheese, tastes like a cinnamon roll!

    Cottage cheese is how I use less high calorie salad dressing. If I have 80 grams of greens, I add 80 grams of cottage cheese, and 15 grams of bottled ranch dressing (and peppers, and carrots, and chicken...)

    I like Greek yogurt and strawberries for a bed time snack, but if I am out of yogurt will use cottage cheese.

    I'll have cottage cheese and sunflower seeds for an afternoon snack sometimes.

    Stop & Shop had Muuna cottage cheese for their Free day recently and I really like the texture, but normally I get Cabot.
