I love cottage cheese, and now that the weather is warmer, I love eating it with fresh berries. It’s so simple and quick to whip up, topped with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, sliced strawberries, and slivered almonds. Excellent for breakfast or snack and an easy way to get more protein in your day, a whopping 19 grams! If you’re not a fan of the taste of cottage cheese, you can use yogurt instead.

How to Meal Prep Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowls

These berry cottage cheese breakfast bowls are perfect for meal prep. You could make a few at one time to grab for breakfast throughout the week. Put the cottage cheese in a food storage container and top with berries, almonds, and honey or maple syrup if using. At breakfast, stir to combine all the ingredients and enjoy!

Variations

  • If you’re missing a type of berry or don’t like one, double the portion of one of the other berries.
  • If berries aren’t in season, you could top your cottage cheese bowl with other fruit like peaches, mangos, bananas, or apples. Most any combination of fruit would work.
  • Swap almonds for pecans, hemp seeds or walnuts.
  • If you like sweeter breakfasts, top your bowl with maple syrup or honey.

Frequently asked questions:

Is cottage cheese a healthy breakfast?

Yes, cottage cheese is a healthy breakfast. I use this low-fat cottage cheese, which only has three grams of fat per serving. It’s also low in calories with no added sugar. And the best part about cottage cheese is that it packs a whopping 19 grams of protein per cup. That’s a lot of protein! Top it with fresh nutrient-packed berries and almonds, and you’ve got yourself a filling breakfast that will keep you satisfied all morning.

What can I use in place of cottage cheese?

If cottage cheese isn’t your favorite, sub it with Greek yogurt.

  1. This is 6 points per serving. 4 for the cottage cheese and 2 for the almonds. Even WW shows it as only 4 though it clearly 4 and 2.

  2. Love this! Makes a fabulous meal prep. My husband couldn’t believe how few calories it was because it tasted so good 🙂 

  3. Another winner from Gina! This breakfast is easy to make and keeps me full until lunch! I love the fresh berries with the cottage cheese! I used sliced almonds since that’s what I had on hand. I have this a couple times a week now.

  4. I love this recipe! I’ve had it twice this week, but are you sure the nutritional information is right? I use the Good Culture low fat cottage cheese, but the protein for 3/4 of a cup is 21 grams all on it’s own. Is the portion of cottage cheese correct?

  5. Is is 1/4 cup fruit total or 1/4 of each type of berry to total 1 cup? Also, when I plugged this in to my fitness pan using fat free cottage cheese it is 334 calories, not 232. 

  6. This is my go to for breakfast. I grind flax and mix it into my cottage cheese. I also add avocado for healthy fat. It’s so good

  7. This was so good! I used hot honey, strawberries, blueberries, and slivered almonds. Like an updated version of grandma’s breakfast. 

  8. I fixed this for breakfast this morning, using blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe, walnuts and honey over the cottage cheese. It was excellent. I might have it for lunch some days.

  9. Thanks for this simple high protein treat! Perfect post work out breakfast. I forget how much I love cottage cheese! Large curd is my favorite, which I have a hard time finding, especially in lower fat version but still so yummy with fruit and nuts!
