Ice Cream Base

  • 11.5 Ounces Strawberry Protein Shake
  • ½ Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese No Salt Added
  • ¼ Teaspoon Strawberry Extract


  • ½ Cup Fresh Strawberries Chopped
  • ½ Graham Cracker Broken into pieces-½ of 1 whole graham cracker or 4 small graham crackers


  • 1-2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk


Make the Ice Cream Mixture

  • Pour the strawberry protein shake, cottage cheese, and strawberry extract into a small blender and blend together until the cottage cheese is completely combined with the other ingredients. Pour the mixture into the Ninja Creami pint container.
  • Freeze on a level surface for 24 hours. Your freezer should be between 9 and -7 degrees Fahrenheit. To avoid getting a bump on the top of the frozen mixture, freeze with the lid off of the container.

Process the Ice Cream

  • After 24 hours, remove the pint container from the freezer.
  • Place the pint container into the outer bowl of the Ninja Creami and then process on “LITE ICE CREAM.”
  • If the ice cream is dry or crumbly looking, pour in a tablespoon or two of unsweetened almond milk and then respin. You may have to repeat this process a couple of times.
  • Pour the strawberries and graham crackers down the center of the ice cream and then process on mix-ins.
  • Remove the pint from the machine and enjoy!


Do you need a blender to make cottage cheese ice cream?

Yes. I would recommend using a blender to blend the cottage cheese before freezing it. You can use an immersion blender, bullet-style blender, high-speed blender, or a food processor. I would not recommend using a frother as it will not break up the cottage cheese enough.

Can I add mix-ins to cottage cheese ice cream?

Yes! You can! I added in fresh strawberries and graham crackers to make it taste even more like strawberry cheesecake. Feel free to add in other mix-ins like chocolate chips (I’d chop them up first) or other types of cookies or candy.
