This Cottage Cheese Ice Cream Recipe has all of the creamy deliciousness of traditional ice cream with the nutritional benefits of cottage cheese. Whether you’re looking for a guilt-free indulgence or a refreshing twist on your favorite frozen dessert, this recipe is one we guarantee you’ll want to put on repeat! 

What is Cottage Cheese Ice Cream?

Cottage cheese ice cream is the latest trend taking the dessert world by storm! It’s just like your favorite creamy, dreamy ice cream, but with a twist – it’s made with cottage cheese! Packed full of protein, it’s a guilt-free alternative to traditional ice cream that doesn’t skimp on flavor or texture.

The secret to making this easy ice cream lies in blending good quality, full-fat cottage cheese with frozen fruits like bananas and strawberries, and a touch of honey. The cottage cheese provides a velvety smooth base, while the frozen fruits add natural sweetness and a refreshing burst of flavor. The result is a luscious, creamy dessert that’s not only delicious but also surprisingly nutritious. Whether you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or enjoy a wholesome snack, cottage cheese ice cream is the perfect choice for a fun and healthy indulgence!

Ingredients You Need

  • Full Fat Cottage Cheese – This is the creamy base that gives our ice cream its rich, velvety texture. 
  • Frozen Banana – Acts as a natural sweetener and thickener, making the ice cream creamy and smooth without the need for added sugars.
  • Frozen Strawberries – Berries add a burst of fruity flavor and a pretty pink color!
  • Honey – A touch of honey balances the tang of the cottage cheese, giving the ice cream a perfectly sweet finish.

How to Whip Up This Quick and Simple Dessert

  1. Combine. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and mix until completely combined. Pause halfway through to scrape the sides and fold all of the ingredients together. 
  2. Thicken. If desired, blend in additional strawberries to create a thicker ice cream. 
  3. Freeze. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze for several hours before serving.

Variations

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter – Add a bit of cocoa powder and a dollop of peanut butter.
  • Mango Coconut – Replace the strawberries with frozen mango chunks and add a splash of coconut milk.
  • Berry Medley – Use a mix of frozen blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries instead of just strawberries.
  • Honey Vanilla – Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract with extra honey.
  • Tropical Flavor – Substitute the strawberries with pineapple and add a handful of shredded coconut.
  • Cinnamon Apple – Use diced frozen apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a warm, spiced flavor.
  • Pistachio Delight – Blend in some pistachio paste and chopped pistachios for a nutty twist.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

Just like traditional ice cream, you’ll want to keep this dessert in the freezer so that it maintains its consistency. 

To freeze, simply transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and store it for up to 1 week. Be sure to give it a few minutes (up to ten) to thaw a bit before you scoop it into a bowl and serve.

    1. You can omit them and add more berries. The ice cream just won’t be as sweet or creamy!
