This is one of my favorite breakfasts to do--fun, beautiful and healthy. And cheerful. You just can't eat this and NOT be happy.
The cottage cheese in it adds a lot of protein, so it's a great way to start your day--lots of protein and fruit, what could be better?! Now, I'm not the biggest cottage cheese fan (and I really don't know anyone who is) BUT this is great--you mix the cottage cheese with a little honey or maple syrup and suddenly it tastes a lot more like yogurt. :)
You should really give it a try. It is likely to become a favorite for you and your family. :)
½ c. cottage cheese
¼ c. grapes, halved or 1 kiwi, diced
1 Tbsp. wheat germ (opt.)
1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup, agave nectar or honey
½ c. strawberries, sliced
1-3 Tbsp. plain yogurt mixed with 1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. chopped nuts
1. Cut banana lengthwise and place in a shallow bowl.
2. Combine cottage cheese with grapes/kiwi wheat germ and maple syrup. Form into a “scoop” and set in the middle of the banana.
3. Top with strawberries and yogurt. Sprinkle with nuts.
