Avocado With Cottage Cheese

Notes

I used two twists of Trader Joe's Everyday Seasoning, but a little salt and pepper or a dash of hot sauce would be just as tasty!

Ingredients

1 avocado
3 ounces low-fat cottage cheese
Spices of your choice (optional)

Directions

  1. Cut an avocado in half. Use the side without the pit, and save the other half for later, since the pit can help keep the green flesh from browning.
  2. Fill the hole with 3 ounces of low-fat cottage cheese and add some spice if you please.
  3. Use a spoon to scoop bites right out of the avocado peel. You don't even need to bother with dirtying a dish.

Way late on this, but this sounds absolutely disgusting. The textures are too similar - the idea of putting a soft, bland food inside an avocado makes no sense to me. I think in general, avocados need acid (i.e. lemon or lime juice) for the best taste.

mmm, I'd definitely do this! My hubby and I eat avocados all the time as a snack or as an appetizer... we usually eat them either filled with tuna and mayo, tiny shrimp, or shredded crab. delish

@ amandaaa: An avocado is a fruit. I also tend to eat them the way Sofia had mentioned, as a dessert with milk and sugar. Combining fruit and cheese makes sense to me.

eating cottage cheese out of an avocado...i've never heard of anything more unappetizing in my life.

i like them both and this seems like a very filling snack! Usually i eat my avocados with a squeeze of fresh lemon which stops the flesh from going brown and gives a nice contrast to the creaminess of the avocado!

I always mix cottage cheese into my avocado when I'm making guacamole--you end up with a larger amount, plus you get a nice amount of protein in. It makes the guac super good and you don't even notice the cottage cheese. Mmmm...

Yeah I like them both separately, but the combo sounds unappealing. Tuna or chicken salad could work there though, I'd rather slice them up and put them on a sandwich or taco though.

i am a big fan of avacado and of cottage cheese but i have to say this combination doesn't appeal! you need something sharp to compliment the creaminess of the avacado. i'd rather fill the center with some tuna and low fat mayonnaise!!
