Cottage cheese is transformed when whipped into a smooth, creamy spread. Here are three different dips you can make with this versatile ingredient. No one will guess they may actually be good for them.



16 ounces full-fat cottage cheese

For the Chili Crisp Dip

1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Crunchy Chili Onion Crunch (or your favorite chili crisp)

1 teaspoon honey

For the Green Goddess Dip

1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Seasoning Blend

2 teaspoons olive oil, or to taste

For the Mediterranean Dukkah Dip

1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Dukkah (or your favorite dukkah blend)

2 teaspoons olive oil, or to taste


Place the cottage cheese in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.

Evenly separate the whipped cottage cheese into three bowls. Mix in the ingredients for each dip into one portion of whipped cottage cheese. Mix each dip well and transfer to a serving dish. Serve with crackers, toasts, or crudité. Or use as a spread for sandwiches.


Each of the dip mix-ins is for a third of the whipped cottage cheese. If you choose to make only one flavor of dip, triple the mix-in ingredients.

If you make the dips ahead and store them in the refrigerator, let them sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving to loosen up. If they are too thick, mix in a little olive (or chili) oil until you have the desired consistency.
