With this refreshing recipe in your back pocket, there's no need to settle for boxed cereal when you don't want to make a hot breakfast. Cottage cheese is a fuss-free way to kick-start your day with high-quality protein. And since they're made up of almost 90 percent water, edible cantaloupe bowls are a stealthy way to bolster your summer-hydration efforts.
- 1 cantaloupe
- 1½ cup fat-free cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- ⅓ cup granola
- ¼ cup pistachio nuts, chopped
- Slice a cantaloupe in half, and then slice roughly a half inch off the bottoms so both halves sit flat. Scoop out the seeds.
- Stir together cottage cheese, honey, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Stuff half of the cottage cheese mixture into each of the cantaloupe halves. Sprinkle on granola and pistachios.
