Ingredients

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.

FAQ

What can you mix with cottage cheese?

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.

What spices go with cottage cheese?

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.

How do you make cottage cheese taste good savory?

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.
