Cottage cheese ideas?


#1

Just curious what everyone does with their cottage cheese. I know it's a great source of casein protein, but I'm repulsed by the smell and flavor unless I mix it with some lowfat flavored yogurt. What does everyone else do with their cottage cheese?

Any other good sources of casein out there?


#2

1/2-1cup of Cottage cheese 1-2 scoopes of protein powder, (whey), 1tbsp of almond butter, and sweeten to taste with Splenda. Give it a try the texure can be a little funky, but it does the job as far as protein. Also make a good P+F snack, and/or a pre-bedtime meal.

Yeah know exactly what you mean! I can only stomach it if it has pineapple in it and the sweet and sourness complements it well.


#4

Hmmmm... What to do with cottage cheese, eh? I like to eat it, myself... lol


#5

1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese, 1 scoop Choc Low Carb Grow, 1 Tbl Almond Butter

Cottage Cheese Smoothie
1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese, 1 scoop Vanilla Low Carb Grow, Fruit (Whole orange or peach are my favorites, strawberry, blueberry), 2 Tbls Plain Yogurt

1 Cup Cottage Cheese sprinkled with McCormick Seasioning Salt and or Seasoning Pepper

Personally, I don't mind the taste of it plain.

Forgot my all time favorite, cottage cheese pancakes!

1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese, 1/2 cup oatmeal (not cooked), 2 whole eggs, cinamon, fruit optional (bannana, berries, etc.). Put in blender and pour like a regular pancake on hot skillet. Cook in advance and freeze. Great snack or quick breakfast. I'll cheat on occasion and add a teaspoon of maple syrup.

Enjoy!

Great ideas everyone - thanks, but are these okay for late night protein too?

if texture is the problem, like it was for me just crush some whole wheat crackers and mix in...its makes a world of difference.


#11

250 g cottage cheese
2 large and riped bananas (smashed)
50 g raisins (seedless)

Mix and swallow :slight_smile:


#12

1/2 cottage cheese(casein)
1/2 ricotta cheese(whey)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder(flavour)
1-2 pouches splenda(sweetness)

If you like Italian canolli pastries, this tastes just like the filling without the pastry shell. You can even throw in some unsweetened chocolate chips if you like.


#13

try switching brands, i find some brands like Deans to be absolutley repulsive and other brands to be not fairly good (for cottage cheese)


#14

I tried the canolli recipe--it's friggin awesome.


#15

cottage cheese on your eggs are great

cottage cheese with peanut butter tastes sooooooo good.

Try Breakstone's Cottage Cheese, I've found that brand tastes the best.

boo

since i cannot stomach the taste of cottage cheese plain, i use it in P+C meals. usually something along the lines of:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 serv. protein powder
1 serv. lowfat yoghurt
1/2 cup granola (or 1 cup, depends on the granola)

sooo good

Romano had a pretty good fat-free/sugar free cottage cheese based cheesecake recipe in the old Muscle Meals book from a while ago.
