Apple-Cranberry Cottage Cheese

Total Time

This recipe is modified from a recipe I found in the Kraft Foods website for healthy eating. You can use other dried fruits in place of the cranberries although I haven't. Also, use nonfat cottage cheese to cut back the calories even more. The applesauce adds the moisture that nonfat cottage cheese needs. I use the recipe as a side for brunch menus. Guests always rave about it.


  1. Mix the applesauce and cottage cheese.
  2. Add the cranberries and stir.
  3. Dust with cinammon sugar to taste.

This wa a great idea! I never thought of combining the two..I used blueberry applesauce and put some fresh blueberries on top...yum!

I have been making this for a while now, but I use raisins instead of dried cranberries. I'll have to try it this way instead.... I also usually warm it up in the microwave, at least enough to take off the chill from the fridge. I don't use any sugar, either; just the cinnamon.

This is a great way for me to eat my cottage cheese... a good non-boring dish to get my protein in. And it's super simple. Thanks for posting.
