Cottage Cheese Dip with Nutmeg Chips
Here’s a sweet snack you can also enjoy as dessert. Enjoy this cottage cheese dip recipe with sweet nutmeg chips.
Get excited for a delicious dessert that also boasts plenty of filling fiber and protein!
Try this cottage cheese dip recipe once, and you’ll want to make it again and again. The best part? This dessert recipe is ready in less than 20 minutes!
I come from a long line of sweet tooths––to say I love dessert would be an understatement. But as a dietitian, I aim for desserts I eat at home to be healthier and on the lighter side and lower in total sugar.
This is why I set out to make my very own cottage cheese dip with sweet nutmeg desserts. I figured this is a healthier way to eat dessert, plus the recipe feels a bit like a healthier side dish.
To make this cottage cheese dip recipe, you will need:
Flatbreads: To make the base of sweet chips, I used a low-calorie, higher-protein flatbread. The combo of fiber and protein that it contains helps to keep you fuller for longer. That’s more than you can ask for from most desserts!
I used Flatout ProteinUP Carb Down flatbreads, but you could also use gluten-free flatbread.
Cottage cheese and Greek yogurt: As a topping for the nutmeg dessert chips, I whipped up a creamy spread with protein-rich cottage cheese and plain Greek yogurt.
Lemon, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries: These are toppings for the cottage cheese dip recipe.
Nutmeg: This helps sweeten the chips without a need for too much added sugar.
Ready to make a delicious, easy dessert? I can’t wait to hear what you think of this cottage cheese dip with sweet chips! Plus, the chips are healthier than graham crackers as a dipper!
To make this cottage cheese dip recipe, first preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
In a small bowl, combine sugar
and nutmeg; set aside.
Treat a large non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Use kitchen scissors to cut flatbreads
into chip-sized pieces, and place on cookie sheet.
Coat with spray oil, and sprinkle with nutmeg sugar.
Bake until crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove, and set aside.
To serve, top chips with the cottage cheese dip.
Sprinkle with berries.
Oh, this dessert dip is delicious! The best part is the healthy chips and cottage cheese dip are simple enough to make for a weeknight dessert, yet they’ll also impress your dinner guests. The nutritious dip also doubles as a healthy snack.
Cottage cheese can be mixed with a variety of different foods and flavors. It’s versatile in that it goes great with both sweet and savory flavors!
Some sweet cottage cheese mix-ins include fruit like sliced apples, chopped pineapple or peaches, or fresh berries. You could also mix cottage cheese with honey, maple syrup, or jam. Add a handful of chopped nuts for some crunch!
If you want to go the savory route, you could mix cottage cheese with chopped vegetables––bell peppers, cucumber, scallions, and/or tomatoes taste great with it.
Add a little olive oil, seasonings, or even hot sauce to enhance the flavor and you have yourself a delicious snack. Cottage cheese can be made into a tasty dip and paired with chips or crackers, like what I did with this cottage cheese dip recipe.
Many different spices go well with cottage cheese, so the choice is yours! If you’re in the mood for sweet, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or even lemon zest would taste great with cottage cheese.
Just about any savory spice pairs well with it too. Try a sprinkle of za’atar, garlic, paprika, or keep it simple with black pepper. You could add a little salt, but keep in mind that cottage cheese is usually pretty salty already.
In my cottage cheese dip, I went the sweet route and used nutmeg and lemon zest to flavor it up.
Cottage cheese is absolutely delicious as a savory meal or snack! The possibilities are endless for what you can do with it.
Pair it with some cooked or raw veggies, use it as a dip for crackers or chips, or add your favorite spices or seasonings.
Some people eat cottage cheese along with savory breakfasts like scrambled eggs or omelets, use it as a dressing for salad, or as an extra ingredient in casseroles, sandwiches, or wraps.
