Cottage cheese topped with fresh fruit is a quick and healthy breakfast or snack. It’s such a great combo, cottage cheese brands (like my favorite Good Culture) sell it that way.  But if you look closely, there really isn’t much fruit in them.  These Peach Pie Cottage Cheese Bowls, on the other hand, are loaded with fresh ripe summer peaches that are lightly caramelized with a little brown sugar and hint of cinnamon.  With only about 2 grams of added sugar (the rest is from the fruit) and a whopping 31 grams of protein, these bowls keep you satisfied and are sure to make it into your weekly rotation.

Is cottage cheese and peaches good for you?

These cottage cheese bowls with fresh peaches are loaded with fiber and protein making it a healthy breakfast. It’s also lightly sweetened, letting most of the sugar come from the sweetness of the in season fruit. Enjoy this for breakfast or even as a snack, or dessert.

Variations:

  • Try this with other stone fruit like nectarines or apricots
  • If you don’t like cottage cheese, this would also be great over yogurt
  • Make a peach ricotta toast by subbing out cottage cheese for ricotta and serving over toast.

  1. Delicious and satisfying! Perfect balance of sweetness and savory. Loved every bite of it. I didn’t have fresh peaches so I used frozen ones. Cooked a little bit longer. Next time I defrost the peaches ahead of time. Adding this recipe to my regular recipe rotation. 

  2. A few small changes I made… I whipped the cottage cheese in my Kitchen Aid. I used Date Syrup instead of brown sugar & pecans instead of pistachios. Such a great recipe! Never like cottage cheese until now!

  3. Absolutely delicious and very filling! I did not use the optional drizzle of honey, even though it no doubt would be delicious. I will definitely be making these again for sure.

  4. Quickly looked at the recipe, and didn’t read you were supposed to cook the peaches.  I just threw everything into a bowl, uncooked, and it was still heaven in a dish!  Quick and satisfying.

  5. Yum!  I used granola instead of pistachios because that’s what I had.

    Easiest way to skin peaches:  cut in half, remove pit, place in a heat safe pan in the sink.  Pour boiling water over and let sit for three minutes.  Put into cold water.  Peels come right off 👍

  6. Hi Nina. This is such a simple yummy quick recipe.
    I use pecans instead of pistachios for a southern taste.
    I cannot wait for your next cottage cheese recipe. Every cottage cheese recipe on this site is budget friendly and yummy .

  7. Simple, fabulous, I could’ve licked the bowl!! Absolutely delicious!!! I’m having it again tomorrow! If you used ricotta, it would make a great filling for crepes!

  8. This was quick, easy and delicious.

  9. I’ve made this twice since I saw the recipe 3 days ago. Phenomenal taste!  Very filling, too!  So far, I’ve used fresh peaches that just came into season here in upstate NY. Could easily make with frozen peaches, too. 

  10. So good, used Greek yogurt as I had no cottage cheese on hand, but I can’t wait to make again! 

  11. Oooh I love this! A nice cool breakfast for tomorrow. I will use nectarines, brown monkfruit and fat free Greek yogurt. I have walnuts; it will come to a whopping two points total for them . Thank you so much for your meal plans and your great recipes. Down 120 so far and I use you a LOT.

  12. I made this for breakfast and all I can say is don’t knock it until you try it! First of all, the peach topping is a keeper. It would go so well on so many things, like oatmeal, yogurt, etc. but also how about a grilled pork chop or chicken breast??? I think it would be great! Also you could easily substitute pineapple for that peach and get a different but also delicious topping.

    And as a side note, I didn’t have any ground cinnamon but I did have pumpkin pie spice which is mostly cinnamon so I used that and it was fine!

    Hubby doesn’t like cottage cheese. But he said it “grows on you” and the more he ate the better he liked it. By the time he finished the bowl he was hooked. Me, I like cottage cheese and as I guess is obvious from my starting comment I like that mix of sweet and savory. This topping is not overly sweet and I loved it.

    Don’t leave out the chopped nuts though. It needs that bit of crunchy texture. But you could use another type of nut, or maybe granola if that’s your thing.

    5* highly recommend as they say!!! 

  13. This is delicious! A keeper! The flavors are perfect together. So simple but special. Followed recipe exactly. 

  14. Peaches and cottage cheese goes together very well. I made this yesterday when it was too hot to cook.

  15. Soo good! I made this with nonfat Greek yogurt since my cottage cheese had gone south. I sweetened the peaches with 1 teaspoon of golden monkfruit instead of brown sugar. Then toasted some chopped pecans (added salt and another teaspoon of golden monkfruit) and topped the peaches and yogurt with the “candied” pecans. 10/10 recommend! I will make this again!! Thanks for the idea, love your recipes Gina!

  16. This sounds perfect! My son and I love cottage cheese bowls, especially sweet ones. And I have all of the ingredients. Sorry I’m rating before trying, but I trust you we love your recipes so much and I tell everyone I know!

  17. Would this work with canned or frozen peaches if fresh aren’t available?

  18. This sounds delicious to even have as a dessert instead of a breakfast. I usually mix diced apples, walnuts, cinnamon and honey in my cottage cheese. I can’t wait to try this combo out. Thanks for all your recipes, you have made my WW journey easier.
