Whipped Cheese, Fruit & Nut Breakfast Bowl

November 1st, 2018 | no comments

Assuming you aren’t dairy intolerant, unsweetened yogurt can be a great breakfast solution. But if I’m being honest, sometimes I like my first meal of the day to be a little salty. In fact, if you were a fly on my kitchen wall, you’d most certainly witness me adding a few cranks of pink Himalayan sea salt to my apple and peanut butter slices. 🙂

Cottage cheese is a nice alternative to yogurt, however one of the biggest complaints is its chunky texture…and I sort of agree. It doesn’t exactly have a becoming mouthfeel, does it?

To fix this, I decided to run a few heaping spoonfuls of Kalona Supernatural Organic Whole Milk Cottage Cheese through my food processor to give it a nice smooth texture. The result was a creamy—and dare I say decadent—cheese that really doesn’t resemble cottage cheese at all…except of course for the color. 

A few shakes of cinnamon, two sliced strawberries, half of a sliced apple, and a couple tablespoons of pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas) later…and breakfast was served. 

I prefer full-fat dairy, and cottage cheese is no exception. If you want the decadent texture to come through in this simple recipe, go for whole milk cottage cheese. Also, to save time you can blend an entire container of cottage cheese in your food processor and simply store it back in the container for easy access.
