Savory Cottage Cheese Sundae


I know it’s too cold outside to think about summer and ice cream, but sometimes it’s fun to spoil yourself a little bit.

Why should your sugar-free lifestyle be without fun?

I present to you… the savory sundae! This is a super savory way to get creamy, but to fill yourself up, too.

PS. So sorry this went out early without the nutritional information and everything. I am having some software issues right now.

I should add that this is a lot of filling food (for me), so I typically enjoy this when I need more than I eat in terms of cottage cheese (like a quick lunch. And then, I usually only eat closer to 3/4 of a cup). You can cut the cottage cheese in half or by 1/4 to save some carbohydrates.


Savory Cottage Cheese Sundae

1 cup cottage cheese (I use 4% small curd)
7 green stuffed olives
2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds

Place cottage cheese in a bowl. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese. Add sunflower seed nuts, and finish with green olives and a cherry tomato!

Super easy, and you’re going to love it!

Makes one serving.

  1. I never would have thought to make a savory sundae. Will have to try this. Thanks for posting!

  2. Have you tried your cottage cheese with a little black pepper. My dad ate it tis way all my life and I swear the pepper makes the cottage cheese taste sweeter!

    • I love black pepper on cc, especially when it’s milled and just the tiniest bit crunchy. Thank you for the reminder. They’ll look like little sprinkles. I also forgot to add bacon sprinkles.

  3. This sounds awesome with a side of sauce!!

    I loving putting cottage cheese in the blender and adding savory or sweet ingredients. It turns out creamy & delicious. I use the savory blend as a creamy veggie dip and the sweet blend as creamy mousse.

  5. Yum, I am a savory gal myself and this sounds fantastic.
