Fruit & Protein Breakfast Bowl

I am not a professional chef or photographer, so the images you’ll see are how the meals come out looking as I serve them to my family. Hope that’s ok…

Main Meal: Fruit and Protein Break Bowl Ingredients

  • 7 1/2 cups mixed fruit
  • 16 oz large curd cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Directions

  • In a blender, blend the entire container of cottage cheese with the scoop of protein powder until an icing-like consistency is reached.
  • If the fruit is not already washed and cut, go ahead and do that ahead of time.

Nutritional Information

  • Serving size: 1 1/2 cups of fruit and 1/2 cup cottage cheese dip
  • Calories: 287
  • Fat: 1.5 g
  • Carbs: 42.8 g
  • Protein: 18.75 g

    Add protein: add chia seeds for an additional boost of protein and some crunch

    Prep and serve details: I like the large curd cottage cheese because, once blended, comes out to a nice icing-like texture vs small curd which comes up a bit more watery.

    Other notes: The calories calculated for the fruit is an average. I did not sit here and calculate the calories in 2 grapes, 2 slices of kiwi, 3 pieces of cantaloupe, etc. Also, I bought my fruit already mixed. I didn’t find any cost savings by buying the whole fruit and cutting it myself.
