Default Cottage Cheese with fruit on the bottom...

So I thought I would give them a try, those cottage cheese containers with fruit on the bottom... I cant eat a whole one without wanting to throw up...

does anyone have any ideas of what I could do with these... make them better? they might just meet the trash can....

I try to eat them thinking "this is good for me" buts it not working... like cottage cheese and fruit... but not togther I guess!

Try mixing it all up along with yogurt, I love yogurt, CC and fruit, but I make my own with the 3 ingredients, I don't buy those cups, I find the fruit isn't good at all, that may be the problem too...

You'd probably be better off if you used real fruit and plain cottage cheese. I bet the packaged cottage cheese with fruit on the bottom is loaded with sugar. I had the same problem when I purchased yogurt with fruit on the bottom. The carb and sugar grams were outrageous.

You could try cottage cheese with real blue berries and add some fat free yogurt or 1% milk to make a great smoothie.

Good luck.

I like plain cottage cheese with pineapple. I really dislike the kind that comes with the fruit (on the bottom or on the side) because it makes me think of jam rather than fruit and who wants to put jam on their cottage cheese? I usually buy 4 of the small, 1 cup sized cottage cheeses and 4 of the small containers of pineapple so it's easy to grab one of each to take to work.
