I know some people hate cottage cheese. The people that dislike this high-protein dairy delight typically really hate it with a passion. I’ll admit I’m a huge fan. I have found that those who couldn’t be more repulsed by the curds often have an aversion to the texture. I recently began blending cottage cheese with a myriad of fruits, nuts and yogurt and have found that this dramatic change in texture gives cottage cheese a whole new dimension.
One of my favorite cottage cheese blends actually tastes a lot like pumpkin pie filling.
I blend equal parts cottage cheese and canned pumpkin along with a copious amount of pumpkin pie spice and a pinch or two of Splenda (use your sweetener of choice). I top the mix with slivered almonds or pumpkin pie seeds. It’s like Thanksgiving in a bowl.
Here’s a brief list of things you may enjoy blending with cottage cheese:
Yogurt (any flavor)
Frozen or fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries)
Frozen mango or pineapple
Sugar-free Jello powder or sugar-free Jello pudding powder
Another cottage cheese success story… this was cottage cheese blended with 1/2 scoop All the Whey cake batter protein powder, frozen blueberries and a splash of Almond Breeze almond milk.
