Cantaloupe Bowls

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.

Make it better: Granola adds great crunch, but compare brands and look for those that contain the least amount of sugar per serving.

 

INGREDIENTS

CANTALOUPE 1 LARGE


COTTAGE CHEESE 1 1/2 CUPS


HONEY 1 TBSP


VANILLA EXTRACT 1 TSP


LEMON ZEST 1 TSP


GRANOLA 1/3 CUP


PISTACHIOS, CHOPPED 1/4 CUP


DIRECTIONS
1. Slice a cantaloupe in half, and then slice roughly a half inch off the bottoms so both halves sit flat. Scoop out the seeds.

2.  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.
