I doubt it's the fruit.  As I said, I have the same thing many 
mornings except sometimes it's yogurt instead of cottage cheese, and 
I also put fruit in cold (and hot) cereal with no problems.  This 
morning my fruit was 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries.  Sometimes it's 
strawberries or blackberries and sometimes even banana.  Never a huge 
amount of fruit, and with the banana it's usually 2 oz.

Based on the corrections I've been having to give these past 3 times 
it seems like I have to double whatever bolus the pump recommends.
