Cottage cheese is the food equivalent of a little black dress. Everyone should have it in their fridge at all times because it goes with everything from casual breakfasts like toast and berries to a fancy night in. These four high-protein snacks will show you just how versatile the little curds can be.

Cottage Cheese Toast

Spread a few spoonfuls of Daisy cottage cheese on top of whole-wheat toast. Top with cherry tomatoes, olive oil, and cracked pepper if you want to go savory, or with honey, mint, and walnuts if you'd prefer a sweet treat.

Tzatziki Dip

1 cup Daisy cottage cheese
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1 tablespoon red onion
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh dill
Pepper, to taste

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Serve with veggies such as bell peppers, snap peas, and broccoli.

Healthy Chocolate Pudding

1 cup Daisy cottage cheese
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons cacao powder

Add all ingredients to a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend everything until completely smooth. Eat it with a spoon or serve with apple slices and strawberries.

Protein Pancakes

1/2 cup Daisy cottage cheese
1/2 cup rolled oats
3 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Heat a teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan on low to medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture into the pan. Flip when bubbles start to appear. Cook until both sides are golden brown. Makes 3 to 4 medium-size pancakes.
