This Whipped Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowl is topped with berries, coconut flakes, and hazelnuts for a perfect treat that tastes indulgent but is actually very healthy!
Have you ever had whipped cottage cheese? If not, you are missing out!
I enjoy regular cottage cheese as a great snack that is low-carb and high in protein, and it goes great with both sweet and savory mix-ins. But whipping it takes it to a whole new level.
And it’s the perfect texture for this whipped cottage cheese breakfast bowl! I make these regularly for breakfast or as a snack, and they are super delicious. The whipped cottage cheese is so creamy and smooth, it feels like an indulgent treat. It’s like an easier version of a smoothie bowl!
I believe eating a healthy breakfast sets you up for success all day long. When you start your day with a healthy choice, it’s easier to keep making healthy choices.
But for those of us who don’t always have a lot of time in the morning, an easy recipe like this one is key. You can whip up (get it?) this bowl in minutes, add your tasty toppings, and dive in! Now there’s no reason not to start your day the right way.
How to make a whipped cottage cheese breakfast bowl
This breakfast bowl is so easy to make, you can barely consider this a recipe. But that’s one of the things I love about it!
Step 1: In a small food processor or personal blender, pulse the cottage cheese until it is smooth and creamy, for about 2-3 minutes.
Step 2: Remove the seeds from the pomegranate and prepare the other toppings. Optional: toast coconut flakes and hazelnuts in a skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Step 3: Serve right away or keep in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
That’s it! Super easy, right?
Breakfast bowl toppings
For this recipe, I used pomegranate, blackberries, hazelnuts, and coconut flakes. But the choice is really up to you!
You can use berries, fruit, nuts, seeds, or almost anything else you like. Just be aware that the toppings you use will change the nutritional information from what is listed below.
Personally, I always put the hazelnuts and coconut flakes in a dry skillet for 2 minutes before adding them to the bowl. This gives them a slightly “toasty” flavor and aroma that is pretty irresistible. If you’re in a rush though, you can skip this step.
As I mentioned, this dish can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 24 hours.
I actually like to whip up cottage cheese right when I bring it home from the store, then put it back into the original container. That way, it’s ready to go whenever I get a snack attack.
But keep in mind that whipped cottage cheese can’t keep for quite as long as when it’s un-whipped, so only do this when you know you’re going to eat it in the next 1-2 days.
