Cottage Cheese Snack Ideas

May 19, 2024 76 Comments

A cottage cheese snack can be a perfect way to get you to the next meal. But cottage cheese is so boring on its own!

What can you do with that? Throw some stuff in it! You must love the nutritional profile of cottage cheese, as it is a low-calorie way to get some protein.

My favorite is cottage cheese with 2% fat.

Nutrition information for 1/2 cup:

90 calories, 2.5 g fat, 1.5 g saturated fat, 5 g carbohydrates, 4 g sugar, 13 g protein, 0 g fiber, 350 mg sodium, 2 purple, 2 blue, 2 green WW SmartPts

When you go to choose cottage cheese at the supermarket there are about a million options (free range, 0% fat, 4% fat, no sodium…..)

I would love to hear from cottage cheese lovers what they choose. I tend to stick with the same things but I’m open to new ideas. I tried some products that were “pre-flavored” and I hated them. For me, mixing something fresh makes a cottage cheese snack a great snack.

My favorite waffle recipe incorporates cottage cheese; check out the cottage cheese waffles recipe.

You can combine it sweet or savory with cottage cheese. I think the easiest option here is black pepper. Simply grind some black pepper and pop it in your mouth.

I also think cottage cheese is great in the summer when we all start looking for something cold. Can it stop you from eating ice cream? Maybe! Why not give it a try?
