Choosing what fruits to go with cottage cheese
When you are ready to enjoy this easy treat, divide the creamy cottage cheese mixture into two small bowls or glasses. Then, you can top it with any fruits you like!
For my parfait, I like to use blackberries. I find the sweet and tart nature of the blackberries perfectly complements the creamy, slightly sweet cottage cheese layer. Blackberries are also a great nutrient-rich option that are packed with Vitamin C.
Berries always seem to be a popular option with parfaits, plus they tend to be lower sugar than other fruits. However, you’re welcome to top your parfait with any fruits you like. Some chopped pineapple or mango would be a delicious summertime treat!
Or, you could always go another direction and add some toasted (non-salted) almonds or low-carb granola. It’s entirely up to you how to enjoy your parfait.
Another great thing about this cottage cheese dessert is that it lasts. The cottage cheese base stores well in the refrigerator for several days.
I recommend whipping together a few batches at once so you can have a healthy dessert ready for you anytime! Just keep the berries on the side until you are ready to eat it.

I am type2 diabetic, I like the looks of your recipes, for example the cottage cheese and fruit, do you eat anything else with this? Normally I would go 21/2 hours and have some type of snack. Could you help me with this.
Christel Oerum says
No, I wouldn’t add anything to this recipe. You get carbs from the berries (plus a little from the cottage cheese) and protein from the cottage cheese. However, this is more of a snack than a whole meal for most
