Strawberry Whipped Cottage Cheese

When I saw this high protein ice cream made of cottage cheese going viral on TikTok I knew I had to try it. I mean, come on!
I’m in both my protein era and cottage cheese era … so it was almost like this concept was made for me! Well, I tried it and it is amazing! Literally amazing. This weird frozen cottage cheese concoction is actually not weird at all.
With a deliciously rich flavor, creamy consistency, and thick texture … this homemade dessert looks, feels, and tastes like the real deal. I promise you … it is SO GOOD! And no … you can’t taste the cheese one bit.
Cottage cheese has gotten a makeover from when our grandparents ate it with pineapple on top. (Remember that?) Growing up in the 1980s, cottage cheese had a bad rep. I think because it was associated with "diet" food.
If you are like me - or most people- the texture of cottage cheese was just never appealing. But my, how things have changed.Cottage cheese is certainly having its moment right now. Thanks to social media, whipped cottage cheese is all the rage.
Its just as it sounds, cottage cheese that's been blended or whipped to a light, fluffy consistency - similar to yogurt. It has a delightful mouthfeel, with a perfect blend of creamy, tangy, and a little salty.
It's also pretty versatile and works well with a ton of ingredients, like fresh fruit and nuts, just to name a few. The possibilities for customising a humble pot of blended cottage cheese into your new favourite high-protein dessert are almost endless.
Because cottage cheese is relatively low in carbohydrates, many who are on the keto diet or another low-carb eating plan are including it in their diets.
Cottage cheese is really good for you. Not only is it full of protein and packed with nutrients, but it is low in calories. About 80% of the protein in cottage cheese is casein, which is slowly absorbed by your body, and is ideally consumed before sleep for muscle synthesis.
That makes cottage cheese the ideal evening snack. This whipped cottage cheese dessert has a good whack of protein, healthy fats and fibre as well as added vitamins and antioxidants, depending on what fruits and nuts you use as toppings.
To harness the true power of cottage cheese, you need to whip it. This goes especially for people - who believe they don’t like cottage cheese and I think the issue is related to texture. But when you give cottage cheese a trip through the food processor or blender, the textural conundrum goes away. All you’re left with is a creamy, airy mousse like treat.
Do you want a healthy, balanced sweet treat that still feels indulgent? Or are you looking for a way to add more protein to your everyday diet? Do you love the taste of cottage cheese, but not the texture?Then this quick and easy whipped cottage cheese dessert is definitely for you!
You will be delighted when you see it just takes minutes to make this rich, silky, smooth, strawberry mousse that will instantly make your list of favourites.
I can tell you for certain that this high protein treat is better than any of those healthy or low calorie ice creams you can find at the grocery store.
You could eat this for breakfast, as a snack or a healthy treat or dessert. I can’t wait to try another flavor though it would be hard to beat strawberry in my opinion.
This recipe is a quick, easy, high protein, and healthy version of the classic dessert! Made with full fat cottage cheese, fresh strawberries, nuts and honey... this viral strawberry cheesecake flavored treat is rich, thick, creamy, and delicious. With 28 grams of protein per serving it is simply a must make!

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cottage cheese, full fat or double cream (4%– 6% milk fat)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup almonds, walnuts or cashews, chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

Optional Toppings

  • Dollop of whipped coconut cream - recipe below in notes
  • chopped nuts
  • fresh fruit
  • hemp or chia seeds
  • shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Add the cottage cheese, 1/2 the chopped strawberries, and the honey to a food processor or blender.
    Blend until completely smooth.
    Pour the blended cottage cheese into a freezer safe container. Layer with the chopped nuts and remaining chopped strawberries.
    Place the container in the freezer to set.  It will take about 2-4 hours to freeze completely.
    Once frozen, remove the cottage cheese ice cream from the freezer and let sit at room temperature for 10-20 minutes to thaw slightly. If you don’t freeze as long / completely you could probably just scoop and serve right away.
    Or if fully frozen, take out of freezer 10-20 minutes before you wish to eat it so it softens.
    Scoop, serve, and enjoy!
