The Balancing Act

Dairy IS Your Friend

Many people don’t realize how nutritious and versatile cottage cheese is

Protein is one of the most important building blocks of a healthy and balanced diet. Getting the right amount of protein is just as important as the quality of protein we choose, which is why Friendship is always the right choice.

Let’s take cottage cheese for example. Many people don’t realize how nutritious and versatile cottage cheese is. Friendship Dairies has a long history of producing high quality dairy products.

At 16 grams per half cup, Friendship(tm) 1% low fat cottage cheese has more protein per serving than most other cottage cheese products and is a part of a healthy balanced diet. When you combine other ingredients with Friendship(tm)cottage cheese, you can create many different delicious snacks and light meals. For example:

Smoked Salmon Mix-in
Servings: 1 Prep time: 5 minutes


  • ½ cup Friendship(TM) cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp. chopped smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped chives
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped red onion
  • ½ tsp. poppy seeds

Coconut Delight Mix-in

  • ½ cup Friendship(TM) cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp. toasted coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp. chopped toasted or raw cashews
  • 1 tbsp. cacao nibs

Simply top cottage cheese with each of the ingredients and then dig in.

These are just a few examples of the delicious and creative ways you can enjoy Friendship Dairies cottage cheese as a quick snack or light meal. The new Friendship collection of mix-Ins tastes great and makes it even easier for you to be healthy on the go.
