Cottage cheese is a simple ingredient that can be accommodated with almost anything. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as a snack, and even in drinks like my cottage cheese smoothie.
It’s delicious in savory meals as a cheese but also in sweet desserts and snacks.
But if you still wondering what to eat with cottage cheese, here are my favorite options.
Crunchy Vegetables: Cottage cheese, as a dip or just plain, is delicious with cucumber, carrots, celery, bell pepper, and many other vegetables.
Fresh Fruits: You can enjoy cottage cheese as a replacement to sugar-loaded whipped cream on strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or apple slices, pear slices, and pineapple. Top it with some honey and it’s delicious!
Cereal: Cottage cheese is a great addition to a bowl of cereal, granola, or puffed amaranth. You will love your cottage cheese breakfast bowls!
Lasagna: Cottage cheese can be used to replace other fresh cheese in lasagna recipes.
Smoothies: Smoothies can be supercharged to make them the best post-workout snack by adding a few tablespoons of cottage cheese and a few drops of vanilla extract and maple syrup to the blender. Low-fat cottage cheese smoothies are my go-to snack after a workout!
Desserts: You can make a delicious and easy sweet treat with cottage cheese, chocolate chips, a few crushed peanuts, a touch of almond butter or peanut butter, and some fresh fruits like raspberries. It’s a great alternative to Greek yogurt.

Hi, I'm Carine, the food blogger, author, recipe developer, published author of a cookbook and many ebooks, and founder of Sweet As Honey.
I have an Accredited Certificate in Nutrition and Wellness obtained in 2014 from Well College Global (formerly Cadence Health). I'm passionate about sharing all my easy and tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy. My expertise in the field comes from my background in chemistry and years of following a keto low-carb diet. But I'm also well versed in vegetarian and vegan cooking since my husband is vegan.
Cooking and Baking is my true passion. In fact, I only share a small portion of my recipes on Sweet As Honey. Most of them are eaten by my husband and my two kids before I have time to take any pictures!
All my recipes are at least triple tested to make sure they work and I take pride in keeping them as accurate as possible.
