Cottage cheese has exploded in popularity lately, and for a good reason. It’s a versatile ingredient that adds a creamy flavor in texture while giving recipes a nice protein boost! As a vegetarian who is always looking for new ways to add more protein to my plate, I’m loving this trend! I’ve made cottage cheese oatmeal, cottage cheese overnight oats, and now I’m enjoying this cottage cheese ice cream!

What is cottage cheese ice cream?

This simple no-churn ice cream recipe means you don’t need an ice cream maker. All you need is frozen fruit, cottage cheese, and a powerful blender or food processor. That’s it! Blended together, the cottage cheese and fruit make a rich and creamy ice cream!

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Cottage cheese– I recommend using a 4% milk fat cottage cheese for the creamiest results. But I’ve also tested it with 2% cottage cheese, which worked well. I don’t recommend fat-free cottage cheese because it’ll make the texture icy instead of creamy.
  • Frozen berries- I used a mix of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, but you could also use strawberries or cherries.
  • Frozen banana– If you don’t want to use bananas, you can use frozen mangos instead. But a sweet, creamy fruit will give you a better texture than just berries.
  • Sweetener– I added a little honey for sweetness, but you can adjust the sweetener to your tastes.
