Tips

  • This filling drink containing milk, fruit and cottage cheese is quick, easy and nourishing, ideal for busy mornings when a sit-down breakfast is not in the cards.
  • Cottage cheese has traditionally contained a lot of salt, with about 400 mg (17% DV) in ½ cup (125 mL). Some brands now contain less. Be sure to check the Nutrition Facts table when shopping and choose the one that’s lowest in sodium.
