Cottage Cheese Ice-Cream -- An ice cream that could actually be good for you

Follow Me on Pinterest

Summer, ice-cream. They kinda go hand in hand.
But if you are the health conscious types... hmmm well...
But, what if there was a healthy way to eat your ice-cream?

Here is the recipe:

  1. 1 tub of cottage cheese -- low fat, no fat, full fat -- choice is yours
  2. Add to this 3 or 4 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. Add stevia to taste -- go real easy on this, because it is very sweet.
  4. Give it all a whir in your favorite food processor. Until the texture is mousse like
  5. Use any freezer safe container. Pre-chill it in the freezer for 5 minutes or so, if you like. 
  6. Fill the good stuff in it.
  7. Freeze until done. If you are really finicky you can take it out of the freezer in 20 minutes an churn it again before returning it to the freezer.
  8. You may have to thaw it in the fridge before serving.
  9. Serve with berry coulis for add fun!

Nutrition information:
If you don't add the berry coulis, it is pretty much what is in the cottage cheese you put in. Stevia does not really add anything.
Other flavors to try:

  1. Mango ice cream -- add some ripe mangoes instead of the cocoa powder -- no additional sweetener necessary
  2. Pina Colada ice-cream -- replace the cocoa powder with frozen pineapple + frozen coconut and maaaay be a hint of stevia.
  3. Berry ice-cream -- your choice of frozen berries replaces the cocoa.
  4. To boost protein content, add eggs or protein powder.
