This clean eating 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


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! 🙂 Happy eating!

      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:

  4. Angie Flynn 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. 💜
