Cottage Cheese And Blueberries Recipe

This healthy cottage cheese and blueberries recipe makes a wonderful breakfast or even just a meal on the go. It’s perfect for snack time and provides plenty of protein to power you through.

This is one of those recipes that doesn’t really qualify as a recipe. It’s just far too simple to require any real direction or instruction. But I wanted to share it with you just because it’s so darn yummy and a fantastic breakfast or snack to add to your clean eating cooler for the day.

Packed with protein and superfood nutrients, I’ve been enjoying this for breakfast for a week now. Can’t get enough of it!

The Cottage Cheese

The type of plain cottage cheese you purchase is up to you. Just be aware that the lower in fat something is, the more processed it was to get it that way. So choose what you are comfortable with.

The Blueberries

I always purchase my blueberries organic because berries are so high up on the list of containing heavy amounts of pesticides. But again, if that’s not in your budget, do what works best for your budget.

The Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are wonderful, but if you prefer, you can substitute them with flaxseed. I do recommend grinding the flaxseed, though, so your body can utilize the nutrients.

The Measurements

The measurements in this recipe are simply a jumping-off point. If you prefer more or less of something, adjust it to your tastes. Other fruits or berries work wonderfully here, too. So get creative! Cottage cheese is extremely versatile stuff.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Cottage cheese – Use the plain stuff. The size of the curd doesn’t matter. Use what you like. Keep in mind that the lower the fat content, the more processed the cottage cheese is.

  1. Mmm. I do love cottage cheese but I’ve never really mixed anything in with it – other than those prepackaged single serving ones that come with a bit of fruit. Thanks for the info!

    I just found your blog yesterday as I was searching for healthy dessert recipes, trying to find something with pumpkin for Fall.

    I am back reading more and more of your great information today. I am trying to improve my food intake and the clean diet concept is intriguing.

    Thank you for providing me with enough education to get started.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tami – Welcome! If you hang around till the week of Halloween, I think you’ll find what you’re looking for. I have pumpkin spice cupcakes on the way as well as spiced pumpkin wedges!

    I fixed this for my daughter as snack a couple of days ago (minus the chia seeds–didn’t have any). She loved it. I tasted it and thought it was yummy as well. I’m so glad you post these simple recipes, because those of us who don’t think so creatively probably wouldn’t ever think of it! Thank you!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Katrina – That’s great! I’m never sure if those “simple” recipes really qualify as recipes or if I should post them. Good know they are useful!

      1. I’m just getting started with clean eating and I would LOVE to see more of the “simple” recipes. I don’t love cooking for every meal but assembling clean ingredient into a simple meal is right up my alley!

          Shannon – Check out my meal plan section. You’ll see a lot of simple combinations there.

    Hi! I am new to eating clean and I can already tell your website will be a great resource! I have seen a few recipes with chia seeds. What are they and what are the health benefits?

  7. Is there a specific type of cottage cheese that is clean? When I have looked at the package it freaks me out trying to read the ingredients.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Heather – I have not yet found one. But the truth is, you would be hard pressed to get many clean eaters to give up their cottage cheese. So if you’re going to use it, opt for organic.

  8. My girlfriend and I started the no sugar challenge me for 2 weeks, she is trying 30 days. We are on day 2. I just read the recipe for the blueberry cottage (btw..sounds awesome). My question would be about (cottage cheese and plain greek yogurt (which I believe has 1 or 2 gm sugar)…are these things ok to have when starting out? Because that is one thing I actually love is yogurt. I thought of mixing berries, kale, chia and making a smoothie with the plain greek, but I saw the sugar in it. (so go or no go)? Thanks.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mike – The idea with the challenge is to avoid ADDED sugar. So if you are using plain yogurt, you should be fine. If fruit had a label, it would have sugars listed in the percentages as well. But it’s actually the ingredient list you want to look at, not the percentages. The percentages will include natural sugars, and a little of that is okay on this challenge. Milk has lactose in it which is a sugar, and that is the percentage you are reading there. So ignore that, and look at the actual list of ingredients. But if the yogurt is plain, there won’t be any added sugars. Same with the cottage cheese. Hope that helps!

  9. Lol I’m feeling a little peckish so I was googling whether blueberries and cottage cheese go well together and I found this recipe, and I happen to have walnuts and chia seeds too! Gonna try it out 😀 Looks delish!!

      Abby – Fantastic! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
