    I mix my chocolate flavoured protein powder in with 125mL of 2% cottage cheese! I also add in approx. 10mL of a sugar-free syrup (have used chocolate, but now I'm using caramel!) It's like a semi-chunky pudding! It can be thrown into a blender/ processor for a smooth texture, but I can't be bothered to have the extra dirty dishes lol

    I love it!

    I've tried this a couple of times recently. It tastes okay, but the protein powder I'm using (Not Just Protein brand) doesn't blend well into the cottage cheese. Some of the powder ends up stuck to the bowl.

    What brand do you use? Does it blend in well? Thanks.

    A nutritionist told me to add cottage cheese to scrambled eggs. It made them so much better. I know that wasn’t your question.

    Right now, I'm using the chocolate Vega powder. I haven't tried the Not Just Protein powder before, so I can't really compare them.

    You're right, the powder can be difficult to mix in, and it definitely takes some energy to get it nicely blended. I notice now that I forgot to mention that I'll add a tiny bit of water, just to help blend the protein powder. Sorry for skipping that part. I don't add the water part to my food diary, so I must have just glazed over that detail in my head. I just put in a little from the tap - maybe 2-3 tbsp? I'm not sure, really. I'll mix it, and if I need more, I'll add more.

    You could add any liquid though. I keep almond milk on hand. Maybe I will try that sometime.

    Anyway, hope you can get it blended nicely and that you enjoy it!

    C.C is so yummy...I like the dry curd variety (higher protein/super low sodium).
    Sweet - anything you might like from protein/pb powder or reg. pb or cocoa, chocolate, dried fruit or fresh fruit, etc.,
    Savory - again anything goes! veggies, into eggs, hot sauce, etc.,
    It's pretty versatile

    I went to a restaurant for a breakfast meeting recently. Great scrambled eggs - much better than the usual restaurant fare. I asked the waitress, "What's the secret?" She said "Cottage cheese and sour cream." Now I've got to try it at home!

    I prefer adding a small amount of fruit cocktail(I usually buy the small containers for portion control.) to my large curd cottage cheese. I've also tried adding pineapple tidbits as well. Delicious! Good luck. Btw, I'm new here. :)

    Salsa. Or raspberry preserves (but it has to be a lot because I need for the whole thing to taste sweet). Both rarely. I usually eat it plain.

    Honey, or fig jam and chopped walnuts. Sometimes flax/chia seeds or a fiber mix, not a favourite but sure helpful.

    I've been mixing in some cinnamon and raisins or chopped dates lately. It has a very rice pudding-ish vibe.
