When it comes to ice cream, cottage cheese may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind. However, this unconventional twist results in a smooth and creamy high protein treat that will leave your taste buds singing. Gather your family and friends because they’re sure to ask for seconds.

The Perfect Blend of Cottage Cheese and Strawberries

Strawberries take centre stage in this recipe, but feel free to experiment with other berries and fruits for a burst of variety. For an extra boost of nutrition and flavour, consider adding approximately ¼ cup of NingXia Red. The versatility of this ice cream extends beyond a simple scoop – try incorporating it into smoothies and smoothie bowls for a delightful twist.

Tip: Mix and Match Berries for a Burst of Colour

If you’re feeling adventurous, swap strawberries for raspberries, blueberries, or even a medley of berries. Blending in half of the strawberries not only enhances the flavour but also gives the ice cream a lovely pink hue. Adjust the colour by adding a few extra strawberry pieces if you want an even more vibrant appearance.

Vegan-Friendly Variation: For those following a plant-based lifestyle, fear not! A vegan-friendly version is within reach. Simply substitute firm tofu (approximately 2½ cups crumbled) for the cottage cheese and blend it with the remaining ingredients.
