The Best Cottage Cheese Ice Cream Recipe
The best ricotta ice cream recipe
Do I need an ice cream maker for this recipe?

You could use an ice cream maker, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry! Your blender or food processor will do the trick just fine.

My ricotta is lumpy. What did I do wrong?

You have to focus everything on mixing. Set that puppy to HIGH to get that silky smooth texture. It should take a few minutes to reach the right consistency, then you can strain the mixture to get rid of any unwanted lumps.

Can I use low fat or fat free cottage cheese in this recipe?

I recommend the full fat variety, with at least 4% milk fat I mean, you COULD use the low fat stuff but the ice cream won’t be as creamy as you’d like.

Can I replace honey with other sweeteners?

If honey isn’t your thing or you don’t have it on hand, try maple syrup, agave syrup, or even granulated sugar.

Can I add other mix-ins or seasonings to the recipe?

Yes, you have carte blanche (crème blanche?) here. Add your favorite mix-ins like nuts, fruit or candy pieces. Get creative!

Is this recipe suitable for people who are lactose intolerant?

Cottage cheese is quite low in lactose compared to other dairy products, but that would be a question for your doctor or dietician. There are also lactose-free ricotta alternatives, although they may not be suitable for making ice cream.
