Cottage Cheese Bowls Ingredients

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this healthy whipped cottage cheese bowl recipe. The exact measurements are in the recipe card below.

  • Cottage Cheese: Although some brands sell whipped cottage cheese in containers, I much prefer the taste of Good Culture, so I whip it myself.
  • Vanilla: Use vanilla extra or vanilla bean paste for a sweeter flavor. If using a vanilla bean, cut it in half and scrape the seeds out with a spoon.
  • Sweetener: Any kind will work–granulated sugar, honey, or maple syrup. For a sugar-free, zero-calorie option, use monk fruit.
  • Fruit: I used sliced bananas and mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries).
  • Nuts: Add slivered almonds for a little crunch and extra protein.

How to Make Whipped Cottage Cheese Bowls

Make breakfast in just 2 easy steps! For the complete instructions, see the recipe card below.

  1. Whip Cottage Cheese: Blend cottage cheese, vanilla, and sweetener on medium-high in a blender until smooth.
  2. Make the Cottage Cheese Bowls: Pour the whipped cottage cheese into 2 bowls, and top with fresh fruit and almonds.

Variations

  • What can I use instead of whipped cottage cheese? If you don’t love cottage cheese, substitute Greek yogurt. You can skip the blender step, and if you use vanilla yogurt, omit the sweetener and vanilla.
  • Fruit: Use whatever fruit is in season, like peaches, figs, pineapple, mango, or pomegranate seeds.
  • Nuts: Swap almonds for walnuts or pecans.
  • Seeds: For more protein and fiber, top with flax, chia, or hemp seeds.

How to Meal Prep Cottage Cheese Bowls

  1. Whip the cottage cheese the day before, and transfer it to 2 airtight containers.
  2. Top each with fruit and nuts. If using bananas or apples, wait to cut them right before eating so they don’t brown.
  3. In the morning, stir to combine and enjoy!

The whipped cottage cheese will last 5 days, so you can double the recipe for breakfast all week.

Whipped Cottage Cheese FAQs

Is whipped cottage cheese the same as regular cottage cheese?

Whipped cottage cheese has a smoother texture than regular.

Can you buy whipped cottage cheese?

A few brands make whipped cottage cheese, but I don’t love any of them. So, I make it at home using Good Culture, my favorite.

Is whipped cottage cheese the same as whipped ricotta?

No. Both are soft, creamy cheese, but they are different. Cottage cheese is less sweet, higher in protein, and lower in calories. Whipped ricotta is fantastic on toast, like in my Whipped Ricotta Toast with Roasted Tomatoes, or in quiche, muffins, or baked pasta for a creamy texture.

What’s better: Greek yogurt or cottage cheese?

Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are both good options. Nutritionally, they’re both healthy, with cottage cheese lower in carbs and yogurt higher in protein. Their taste and texture differ, so it comes down to personal preferences. Use whichever you enjoy more!

What can you mix in with cottage cheese?

So many things! Cottage cheese is delicious with fruit, nuts, honey, and even veggies and herbs for a savory option.
