How to make Cottage Cheese in 30 minutes

Cottage cheese is full of antioxidants such as selenium, vitamin E and D which help fight free radicals and give you healthier looking skin, trimmed waistline and a healthy heart. And the good news is that you can make it at home with two simple ingredients. Here is how.


  • 2 L milk (3.25%)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (1.5 lemons)


  1. Bring milk to boil.
  2. Remove milk from heat, pour in the lemon juice and stir gently.
  3. Let the milk sit for 10 minutes and allow white curds to form.
  4. Strain the curds through a cheese cloth and let it drain for up to 30 minutes depending on how dry or soft you prefer your cottage cheese.
  5. Enjoy right away or store in the fridge for a few days.

 I enjoy cottage cheese in crepes as a dessert, or in a pie with a bit of sea salt and thyme.
