Cottage Cheese And Yogurt

This cottage cheese and yogurt “recipe” makes a fabulous snack on the go!

I know. The photo might not look like the most appetizing meal suggestion. But it’s one of my favorite go-to meals when I’m in a hurry. Mini Chef asks for it every morning for breakfast too.

Clean Eating Cottage Cheese And Yogurt

Cottage Cheese And Yogurt

This is not a complicated meal, which I love! Who doesn’t want a simple, easy-to-make meal that travels well?! It’s quite simple, really. Just mix one serving of cottage cheese with one serving of yogurt (fruit-sweetened), and you’ve got yourself a filling and protein-packed meal or snack. And if you want to add some extra fiber and nutrition, you can stir in some flaxseed, chia seeds, or even chunks of fruit.

I had to look far and wide for yogurt that was sweetened only with fruit. But persistence paid off. I found some at my local Whole Foods Market.

I like the versatility of this meal as well. All you have to do is change the flavor of the yogurt to have an entirely different meal. Add a salad to the mix and you’re having a pretty great lunch break!

  1. I literally have been eating that combo every single night for 3 years now. It is by far my favorite food. But you are right, you have to get past what it looks like. I suggest it to my friends and family and after one look they say I’m crazy. ..but after one bite, they think…genius! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy eating!

      Katie – I know what you mean! But man is it yummy! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What brand of fruit sweetend yogurt do you like to use?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      The Cascade Fresh brand is the only clean yogurt I’ve been able to find. It’s good stuff too!

      I had a stroke in April. I now eat No Fat Cottage Cheese, Low Fat yogurt and No Sugar Fruit, preferably Blue Berries, sometimes mixed fruit. I am looking for a low sodium cottage cheese? Hard to find in our area.

      I have lost 30 lbs. in the last several months and have become totally satisfied with this as a meal twice a day.

      Have a good day and enjoy.

      1. The Gracious Pantry says:

        Warren – Yes! Cottage cheese and yogurt or even just plain fruit is a wonderful meal!

  3. sounds tasty. what brand cottage cheese are you using?

    1. graciouspantry says:

    This is my new go- to breakfast!! Balanced protein and carb and tastes like a different version of cheesecake every day! My favorite is key lime pie! Yummy!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Angie – That’s great! Just be sure that any flavored yogurt you use is clean. They can be tough to find!

  5. Idk why, thinking about the key lime yogurt mentioned previously, I guess, n I’m way behind!
    Sorry, but 1st, why not yogurt (6 Oz.?), rinsed, well drained berries of choice, nuts (any kind, mixed….quarter cup), n then I add a “drizzle” of agave nectar over top. Satisfying. U can be as strict-organic, low sugar, all kinds of yogurt options. U could skip the nectar, but I just use a tsp. I am diabetic n it has a low glycemic index, so I can afford it at breakfast.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Karol – Sure, you could do that. This is just another option. I don’t consider agave to be clean though. But whatever works for you!

  6. I like to sweeten my Greek yogurt with Amber honey. Then cottage cheese. Delicious! Thank You for the idea. ๐Ÿ’œ

  7. LOL one of the reasons I hated writing a FOOD blog as a CHEF (a real one with a real degree and real-life experience) is that people would come in and make all kinds of “buts” when I already included variations.

    Props to you lol. I think it’s because you have a kid. When you have kids, it makes you more patient towards adults that act like kids hahaha.

    I came here because Google wanted me to. I thought this morning when I was planning the meals for the day “what if I mixed some greek yogurt and cottage cheese for carbs/protein? Is that a thing” And sure enough it is!
