    i like to mix tuna into mine. another thing i like to do with it is make a tuna, egg, or chicken salad. i drian the cottage cheese in a strainer then put in food processor and puree it. i chop the meat, fine chop onions, carros, celery, and gershin pickles. then i use the puree (as oppsoed to mayonaise) to mix it all up. this can tend to be a little dry - just add some olive oil.

    What not to do...

    1/2c cottage cheese (fat free)
    1/2c egg whites
    1c milk (fat free)
    1scp whey (~22g chocolate)
    1tbs Ovaltine (for taste)
    ... blend

    It tasted like complete butt. I got it down, but it wasn't pretty. I don't know what I was thinking.

    If you aren't too worried about sugar, I like pineapple slices in cottage cheese.

    I'm going to have to try some of these other combos. I like cottage cheese straight, so I've never gotten too much into flavoring it.

    If you want to go the savory route, chopped green onions, lots of pepper, a dash of salt. Use a toasted low-carb tortilla as a cracker. It 'aint a whopper, but it is pretty tasty when you are dieting.

    For me, it's usually a sweetener, Mandarin Oranges and some cinnamon. I wouldn't dare mix tuna in, I love my tuna with FF Mayo, onions, celery and pepper (on a thin slice of bread in the toaster over.... heavenly lol)

    It's pretty good with cereal. If your diet lets you have those extra carbs, CC and Cheerios pretty much tastes like a bowl of cheerios /w milk.

    I tried 1/2 cup in a bowl of Raisin Bran & skim milk and it was delicious. The taste wasn't noticeable and the texture actually made it better. I'm impressed. Why didn't I think of this?

    I was in a creative/daring mood this evening.

    1 cup cottage cheese
    1-2 TBS Unsweetened cocoa
    A dash of vanilla flavoring
    2 packets of splenda

    It's like a chunky, dark chocolate pudding-wannabe

    add a cup of liquid to that bad boy (preferably milk) and place in the freezer for like 35-40 minutes and it gets to be a pudding-like consistency with a greater quantity to enjoy!

    For Chocolate and Peanut Butter lovers, nothing beats this:

    1 serving Chocolate Performance Pudding
    1/2 cup low fat Cottage cheese
    3 oz cold water
    1 tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter
    1 packet splenda

    Mix throughly and let sit in the freezer for about 5-10 mins...

    Yes it is, but tastes much better. It is actually more concentrated (less wet). 1/4 cup Ricotta = 1/2 cup cottage cheese. Very similar macros.

    although the macros are very similar, ricotta has a much higher concentration of whey to casein than cottage cheese.

    I bet ya guys will never think twice before picking up cottage cheese when grocery shopping.

    Protein Pancakes:

    1/2 cup oats
    1/2 cup cottage cheese
    4 egg whites
    1 Tbsp vanilla extract
    cinnamon to taste

    Blend everything in a blender. Spray pan with cooking oil. Eat with whatever the hell you like.

    It's been a breakfast of mine for a while now. Simply marvelous with a protein punch it packs.

    You can add it to instant pudding(w/ a blender) and you'll never taste it. You can add some extra whey powder too, it's real tasty.


    For a somewhat "dirty" bulking snack/meal, get a container of those cold mayonnaise salads at your grocery store (macaroni salad, spring salad, potato salad, etc) and stir a bunch of fat free cottage cheese into it. Just be careful not to overdo it cause those salads usually have a high amount of soybean oil (very little saturated fat though and no trans fat). It's very very delicious and again you can't taste the cottage cheese and it doesn't seem to change the texture. Very easy, very quick dense calories and a hell of a lot better for you than McDonalds.

    Smuckers makes a couple of diiferent flavors of sugarfree jam that tastes really good in cottage cheese. I also have eaten it with extra lean turkey bacon and it was awesome, but I kinda like the taste of caottage cheese.

    For me, cottage cheese and anything iss great. Just had it actually with oats, bt I made the oats seperate with cinnanmon and stevia placed them in the fridge to chill for 20 then I ate my cottage cheese and put some stevia and cinnamon in there. This is a great meal anytime.

    I also eat cc a lot with black beans and a tbsp of salsa..try it
