    Question cottage cheese


    ive read a lot of people are into cottage cheese before bed, so i thought id try it out. with just one spoonful i couldnt do it. i ended up spitting it out. my question is what can i do to improve the taste? what are some of yall mixing yours with?

    *edit* what brand of CC are you using, and is it fat free? i tried the HEB brand and my friend told me she loves CC but gagged on the HEB stuff.

    i flavor mines with just a small packet of splenda and some cinnamon and that does the trick for me. I have also heard though that people mix it in with pudding as well.

    I use salt and pepper. Dipping potato chips in the cottage cheese is a great snack.

    But not healthy.

    It tastes great with some peanut butter and low sugar jelly.

    I also love it with some chopped tomatoes and the seasoning "Spike".

    fresh fruit like strawberries, peaches, pineapple are great with cottage cheese..i think peaches are the best. does add some simple sugars though. try starting out with the fruit, acquire a taste for it, then try and phase out the fruit, or use less..

    sugar free maple syrup or honey also act as good sweeteners. i just recently tried it mixed with a scoop of chocolate whey and i have to say its pretty amazing, once you get it completely mixed it tastes kind of like thick chocolate pudding. great desert/snack before bed.

    Check out the cottage cheese thread in the recipe section. I prefer mixing with sugar free jello powder, orange being my fav. Dump large container of CC in bowl, and pour jello packet in and mix. CC takes the flavor of pretty much what you put in it, at least fat free does. CC with more fat has a different taste and is usually a bit thicker consistency.

    1 cup FF cottage cheese with a hefty scoop of natty PB and a drizzle of organic honey every night for me. I sit down, shut up and eat it. That's all there is to it.

    Normally I eat Cottage cheese with either Flax seed Oil, and\or Omega 3-6-9's for, but eating it with fruit actually sounds awesome!
    Will try that one in my next snack

    I have eaten soo much cottage cheese this is the only way I can eat it now. Mix up some tropical punch crystal light or any flavor. Put cottage cheese, a half scoop of vanilla protein powder and the crystal light in a blender blend till smooth and drink. Tastes pretty good I think. You can add more or less of each ingredient depending on taste and protein needs. I use a magic bullet to do the mixing. Those things work great.

    Cottage cheese is disgusting, but I found I can eat it by buying small curd, and just swallowing it down (no chewing). Give it a try. Works for me.

    French-Blue cheese dressing mine is made by Marzetti, not too much, but it gives it a good zing.

    Try adding some of your favorite flavored Whey Protein to it. It makes it a hell of a lot more palatable. I usually use ON Double Chocolate flavored whey, use what you prefer, it helps a lot. Don't forget to mix it together well. It makes the cottage cheese taste like a crappy pudding lol.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I love cottage cheese solo, but often I'll mix in yogurt for taste and texture. My wife, who hates cottage cheese, does this in the morning or pre-bed and actually enjoys the snack. She absolutely cannot choke down any of my casein powders. If you like yogurt, you'll like this.

    Do they make cottage cheese with cows piss or something in other areas? It seems like so many people say they can't stand it and I don't understand why. I like it straight from the tub....if it's Land O Lakes brand.

    I guess it's just difference in people tastes. I would suggest seasoning with seasoned salt if you like it seasoned and salty. If you prefer sweet then go with peaches or some other fruit.

    crpay - It's not a taste issue with me. It's a texture thing. It just grosses me out. This is why I can handle "eating" it by just swallowing it down. It's when I have to chew that it becomes an issue.

    Okay, I get what you are saying. I forgot that food textures can cause things to be unbearable to eat.

    Yeah, like some people swear off oats due to texture (where as I find the texture fine). Cottage cheese is really the only food I wont eat due to texture.

    IMO, cottage cheese in US, does taste like crap. Try tvorog, which is russian cottage cheese. http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.ac...81474976749286. Very small curd size, not sour at all. Literally tastes like a good sour cream. Recommend
    It's also called farmer cheese http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farmer_cheese

    since i first made this thread, i tried borden's brand and started to add blueberries. 100x better. my goal is to do it solo, or mix it with something lower in sugar/carb. trying to stay away from carbs before bed.

    In the same family, Chobani (greek yogart) is pretty good. Good nutritional profile as well for a small snack. Vanilla or honey mixed w/ fresh fruit.
