What Is Cottage Cheese?

Cottage cheese is made from milk that has been curdled (often by vinegar or lemon juice) and has cream or salt added to the curds. It’s simple to make at home with a few basic kitchen gadgets (pot, cheese cloth, thermometer).

I’ve made my own cottage cheese, but usually prefer buying store-bought which has a great flavor. You can use either for this recipe, which takes just a few minutes to cut up the fruit and serve.

This cottage cheese fruit bowl comes together in about 5-10 minutes, depending on how much fruit chopping you do.  And you can eat most of the bowl, so very little to clean up afterwards… an added bonus!

What’s In This Cottage Cheese and Fruit Bowl Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Cottage Cheese – you can use whatever type you normally buy to eat: fat free, low fat, or 4% milkfat. My usually go with whole milk cottage cheese, my favorite is a local Vermont brand they sell in most of our grocery stores here in New England.
  • Cantaloupe – I like the sweetness of a fresh, ripe cantaloupe with the salty, creamy cottage cheese. It’s also fun to serve it right out of the melon, once you scoop the seeds out.
  • Fruit – I used blueberries and grapes, which I had on hand. You can use other fresh or frozen fruit like pineapple, peaches, or strawberries too!
  • Honey: Optional, but I love adding a drizzle of honey on top of this dish.  We’re beekeepers, so we  use our own honey! I’d recommend trying a local farmers market to find the best honey in your area.

How Do I Make These Fruit and Cottage Cheese Bowls?

  1. Cut a ripe cantaloupe in half, and using a spoon scoop out the seeds.
  2. In each cantaloupe half, fill the center with 3/4 cup of cottage cheese (you may need more or less depending on the size of your cantaloupe). 
  3. Top each half with 1/2 cup of the fresh fruit, and a drizzle of honey.
  4. To eat, I like spooning a bite of fresh cantaloupe with come cottage cheese at the same time! Eat until the orange cantaloupe flesh is finished, and discard the rind.

  • This recipe is naturally vegetarian. I haven’t found a vegan or dairy free cottage cheese version yet, but there is a lactose free cottage cheese you can enjoy if you cannot eat lactose.
  • To make gluten free, ensure the cottage cheese and honey you are using are certified gluten free.
