This honey cottage cheese dip recipe is the perfect breakfast when you want something totally decadent but also want it in 5 minutes. This beautiful breakfast takes advantage of fresh honey (as a beekeeper, you better believe we always have a few jars around!), and is loaded on creamy and salty cottage cheese. Drizzle some honey on top, add a sprinkle of lemon and cinnamon, and breakfast is served.
 
You can use your favorite brand of store-bought honey, but if you can find local honey from a beekeeper, definitely try it out!  Your local farmers market or health food store will likely carry honey from near by, so support your local beekeepers if you can.

What’s In This Cottage Cheese and Honey Recipe?

I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every month and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

  • Cottage Cheese – you can use non-fat, 2%, or 4% cottage cheese, whatever you prefer!
  • Raw Honey: We use our own honey, straight out of the beehives for us!  As beekeepers, we have plenty of raw honey so I try to use it in all my recipes instead of sugar.  I’d recommend trying a local farmers market to find the best raw honey in your area. Or else, this raw organic honey online here is the next best thing.
  • Lemon Juice – gives this breakfast a little pop of acidity, it’s so delicious with the cinnamon too, such a great flavor combination.
  • Cinnamon: which gives this spread a subtle spice-y flavor!  I love to add in a pinch for extra warmth.

A Healthy Breakfast With Cottage Cheese To Enjoy Every Morning

This cottage cheese and honey recipe is a fantastic way to start your day on the right foot!  While cottage cheese is sometimes consumed for breakfast, this recipe makes it easy to get your protein in first thing in the morning. I add plenty of  fresh honey to sweeten this breakfast naturally. Only good-for-you whole ingredients go into this dish, making it a great way to rise & shine!

Is There an Alternative to Honey?

Yes, you can substitute out the honey in this recipe for agave nectar or maple syrup. I prefer agave nectar, it’s my go-to kitchen sweetener because it’s absolutely delicious, and buying organic agave is crazy inexpensive online (compared to other organic sweeteners).  It also bakes well, so I like to add it to my baked goods.

How Do You Make Cottage Cheese Dip with Honey?

  1. In a small bowl, add the cottage cheese, honey, and lemon juice. Stir well to combine. For a super creamy texture, blend for 30 seconds, and transfer back to the bowl.
  2. Add an extra drizzle of honey or cinnamon on top for garnish.
  3. Spread on toast, use as a dip for fruit, or just enjoy with a spoon!
