Cottage cheese ice cream recipe

Cottage cheese is having a moment.

The versatility of cottage cheese is highlighted in this recipe. Used as the base for ice cream, it’s perfectly creamy for a healthier dessert. 

Serves 3


  • 2 cups (16 ounces) full-fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips


Add cottage cheese, honey and peanut butter to a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Put mixture in a loaf pan and place in the freezer for about 4 hours, or until hard.

Remove from the freezer, let thaw for 5-10 minutes, or until you can easily scoop it into individual bowls.
