Frozen cottage cheese in a yogurt cup with a spoon and toppings.

This Frozen Cottage Cheese Cup is my high-protein take on the viral TikTok version. I blended cottage cheese with simple ingredients like monkfruit and powdered peanut butter, then topped it off with dollops of melted chocolate and crushed peanuts to give it that authentic Snickers taste.

Homemade Cottage Cheese Ice Cream

Want to enjoy a delicious dessert that is super easy, involves zero dishes, and is made all in one small container of cottage cheese? Then you’re going to want to try this single-serve snickers-style dessert. Instead of using yogurt, I used whipped cottage cheese as the base as a low-carb, higher-protein alternative. 

If you’re feeling skeptical about the cottage cheese ice cream taste, hear me out: once you try it, you’ll be hooked! (My strawberry Cottage Cheese Ice Cream recipe is also proof!)

Each bite is full of creamy, sweet, and chocolatey goodness, and it’s SUPER easy to prepare. Consider your ice cream cravings fulfilled.

Why You’ll Love It

  • A great way to enjoy a high-protein dessert while keeping it low-carb.
  • Makes for a quick and easy mid-day snack.
  • Easy to customize for maximum creativity and deliciousness. 
  • It has the best texture and flavor! 

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Single-Serve Cottage Cheese Cup: The higher the quality of the cottage cheese, the better! Full-fat cottage cheese will have a creamier taste.
  • Monkfruit Sweetener: Adds the perfect sweetness (without the sugar!) to satisfy your sweet tooth.
  • Powdered Peanut Butter: A great low-calorie sweetener that still achieves that peanut butter flavor.
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate: Use your favorite brand of sugar-free chocolate!
  • Crushed Peanuts: This adds a satisfying crunch and nutty flavor so that it tastes just like a Snickers bar.

Variations and Substitutions

Monkfruit Sweetener: You can swap the monk fruit with stevia, honey, agave, or whatever zero-sugar sweetener you prefer. If using something different, make sure to sweeten it to taste.

Powdered Peanut Butter: I use this to keep things low calorie, but if you’re not watching calories too much, go ahead and add natural peanut butter or creamy peanut butter to make it taste even better. 

Fresh & Fruity: Replace the peanut butter with berries like fresh fruits like fresh strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries for a different take on this cottage cheese ice cream trend. You could also swap the crushed peanut topping with dehydrated fruit, oats, or other nuts and seeds.

FAQ

Can you freeze cottage cheese?

Yes! Cottage cheese can be frozen to extend its shelf life and help it last longer. This is especially useful if you have a large amount of cottage cheese that you won’t be able to consume before it goes bad.

Can you substitute cottage cheese with yogurt?

Absolutely. This Snickers-style cottage cheese cup would taste just as good with yogurt. Whether you choose plain, vanilla, or your favorite fruit-flavored yogurt, the results will be equally delicious. Keep in mind that the type of yogurt you choose will affect the carb and sugar count.

What else tastes good with frozen cottage cheese?

What’s great about this cottage cheese ice cream recipe is that you can customize it however you’d like. Swap out the Snickers ingredients and add fresh fruit or other toppings like nuts, honey, or even granola. 

Storage

This frozen cottage cheese cup is best enjoyed the same day it was made. Otherwise, the texture and taste may be compromised. Luckily, it’s so easy to make, you could whip it up every day without a problem!

  1. Thank you for all the recipes! Is there any sugar free chocolate you suggest that doesn’t have erythritrol in it?

    1. I really like Hu Kitchen dark chocolate but it is slightly sweetened with dates (still low carb!). There’s another brand called PureLove and it’s sweetened with stevia.
