    Instead of just mixing them together, mix in a ninja/blender… comes out almost cheesecake texture 🙂 One of my fav go to protein foods 🙂

    • Derek Howes on March 13, 2013 at 12:00 am

      I do this sometimes too! My pudding/sludge recipe is made this way. Delicious. Thanks for the comment Lori

  2. Mikey on March 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Peanut butter mix is a great, cheap, quick go-to dessert! these recipes are basically opening up a whole new food group for me (cottage cheese)… with perfect macros. thanks again for all the great recipes, Derek!

    • Derek Howes on March 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

      No problem Mikey! Thanks for reading/trying!

  3. Ben on May 7, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Great recipes! I also tried it with sugar free chocolate pudding and some chocolate whey. Turned out great! Thanks for the recipes!

    • Derek Howes on May 8, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Love that! Thanks for the feedback Ben. Appreciate it

    A friend of mine alerted me of your awesome recipes. I have been struggling with low fat ways to make tuna salad. Last week I just had tuna and mustard. Good, but I get tired of eating it by the end of it.

    I tried cottage cheese and tuna. Thanks for the great recipe! Creamy with no cottage cheese taste. I had to modify a little to hit my macros for the meal. I used two cans, but kept the cottage cheese the same. It was a good ratio for me, but may be too chunky for some. I did add a good serving of Sriracha and Old Bay seasoning. It needed a little salt to pull it together and I figured why not throw some old bay in it. I ate it like a prisoner on death row.

    Thanks again! Looking forward to more recipes (and diving through all I have missed so far)

      Love hearing stuff like this! Thanks a lot Jamie – appreciate the kind words/comment. Hope my recipes can continue to help ya. Let me know how everything else turns out (if you try anything else)!

    Just tried the PBS but only have ON gold cookies and cream. Not bad but I think the whey flavor didn’t’ do it any favors :p

  6. Edward on December 26, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Your PBS (minus sweetner) has become a staple of mine. In fact, I often eat it as my late evening snack / motivator to finish my workout for the day. Today, however, I put the 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 1.5 tbsp of (home made) peanut butter, and scoop of chocolate powder along with a medium banana into a blender, a new *spin* for me. Magic! Thanks again for all the great tips. I love trying your recipes!

  7. Kandle on July 1, 2014 at 12:00 am

    My husband has been eating the tuna and cottage cheese for a while but never thought to spike it with sriracha! Now he loves it instead of it just being tolerable. I’ve watched a lot of your videos and I’m so excited I found your recipes. Your chicken chili is on the menu this week! Thank you for being awesome 🙂

  8. Chris W on March 9, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Just stumbled across this thread looking for ideas. Never would have thought to put some of those ingredients together but will definitely try them. I have made a lunch out of canned crab meat, cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs and some old bay.

  9. Kristin on May 23, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Just want you to know that I eat sir tuna daily for lunch & love it! At first I was too eager to get to it so ate it right away. However now I’ve developed the ability to put it in the freezer 1/2-1 hour and let it turn real cold before eating. YUM! It surpasses your other CottageCheese dishes in my book.
    Do you have any recipes for fudge?
    Next I’ll try your Sriracha TUNA Chili recipe.

    • Derek Howes on May 26, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Thanks Kristin! I do have a fudge recipe! You can search for it on here and it’ll pop right up! 🙂

  10. Casey on June 29, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Do the cinnamon swirl version, chop up some apples and let it sit in the fridge for a little bit.
    That’s a great snack.
    Love the website, bro! Keep up the good work; this has completely changed my meal prep!
