What Sweetener To Use?

I love using this liquid allulose syrup as it is a great choice for sweetening ice cream. It can help maintain a smooth texture due to its ability to resist crystallization, making it ideal for ice cream.

You can also use a Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend, which combines the sweetness of allulose with the natural sweetness of monk fruit extract.

Another alternative is xylitol, a sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sweetener. However, it’s important to note that xylitol is toxic to dogs, so it should be used with caution, especially if you have pets in your home.

How To Serve

  • Cottage Cheese Ice Cream Sandwiches: Spread softened cottage cheese ice cream between two almond flour cookies or keto chocolate chip cookies. Roll the edges in mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts for a playful twist on the classic ice cream sandwich.
  • Toppings: Set up a toppings bar with a variety of options, such as crushed cookies, sprinkles, diced fruit, chocolate chips, and whipped cream.
  • Cottage Cheese Ice Cream Parfait: Layer cottage cheese ice cream with granola, fresh fruit, and a drizzle of honey or sugar-free maple syrup in a transparent Repeat the layers until the glass is filled, then serve.

Recipe Variations

  • Chocolate: Mix in 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder for a rich chocolatey flavor.
  • Fruits: Blend in your choice of fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, for a burst of fruity goodness.
  • Boozy Infusion: Add a splash of liqueur or spirit like Irish cream, bourbon, or rum. Serve with boozy caramel sauce or a shot of espresso.
  • Coffee: Incorporate espresso or coffee. Top with whipped cream and cocoa powder or chocolate-covered espresso beans.
  • Nuts: Replace chocolate chips with chopped nuts like almonds, pecans, walnuts, or pistachios for a crunchy, nutty texture.
  • Pumpkin: Use seasonal ingredients like pumpkin puree and fall spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, or pumpkin pie spice.

How To Store

Freezing: If you have any leftover cottage cheese ice cream, store it in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months.

Thawing: When you’re ready to enjoy the ice cream, transfer it from the freezer to the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to soften slightly before scooping.

Learn how to make this super creamy cottage cheese ice cream with just 3 ingredients! We blend cottage cheese until it's really smooth, add sweetener, and blend chocolate chips right in. It's a fun and delicious high-protein ice cream, perfect for hot summer days.


  • 2 cups full-fat cottage cheese such as Good Culture
  • 1/3 cup liquid sweetener sugar-free honey or agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter or cashew butter



  • Start by placing the cottage cheese in a blender. Make sure to scoop it all out of the container. Blend on high speed for about 1-2 minutes or until the cottage cheese becomes very smooth and creamy. This step is crucial for a creamy ice cream texture.
  • Add your sweetener and peanut butter to the smooth cottage cheese. If you're using vanilla extract, add it now as well. Blend again on medium speed for another minute until all ingredients are well mixed and the mixture is smooth.
  • Using a spatula, gently stir in the chocolate chips to the mixture or blend the chocolate chips into the mixture.
  • Transfer the ice cream mixture into a freezer-safe container. You can use a loaf pan or any other container. Smooth the top with a spatula. Cover the container with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming.
  • Place the container in the freezer. Freeze the mixture for at least 3-4 hours.
  • Before serving, remove the ice cream from the freezer. Let it sit at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes.


Feel free to change the sweetness or add other things like nuts or fruit to your ice cream.
Adjust the amount of sweetener based on your preference. More sweetener can be added for a sweeter taste.
Experiment with other mix-ins like nuts, berries, or crushed cookies to customize your ice cream.
