Strawberry Cottage Cheese Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients 

Ice Cream:

  • 1 cup full fat cottage cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Swerve
  • 1/4 teaspoon Xanthan Gum (optional)

Crumb (optional):

  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts
  • 1 teaspoon Swerve
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Or instead of making a crumb, you can use low carb graham crackers.

Instructions

Start by making the crumb (if you choose to). Toss hazelnuts (or any other nuts), Swerve, and butter into your food processor, high-powered blender or immersion blender. Pulse until you get a nice, crumbly texture. Set aside.

Next, it’s ice cream time! In the same food processor, blend full-fat cottage cheese, half of the strawberries, Swerve, and Xanthan Gum (if you choose to) until you achieve a creamy texture.

Pour the ice cream mixture into two 6oz (200ml) freezer-safe containers or one 12oz freezer-safe container. This is great for portion control and ensures you won’t be tempted to eat it all in one go!

Sprinkle the top with your crumb mixture and the rest of the strawberries. Pop it in the freezer and freeze it for a minimum of 2 hours.

Why Xanthan Gum in the Keto Ice Cream?

When it comes to homemade high protein ice cream, achieving that perfect creamy consistency can be quite a challenge. That’s where Xanthan Gum comes into play. 

This versatile ingredient is a game-changer for ice cream enthusiasts. By adding just a pinch of Xanthan Gum to your ice cream mixture, you can prevent it from freezing into a solid brick. 

It works by inhibiting the formation of ice crystals, ensuring a smooth, creamy texture that’s just irresistible. Plus, it’s a fantastic stabilizer, making your ice cream less likely to melt and maintaining its delightful consistency.

It is an optional ingredient as not everyone likes to use it or can find it in the shops. Although, I would suggest using it if you can.

For those who prefer a gadget to do the heavy lifting, the Ninja ice cream maker is another excellent option. 

It’s designed to churn out perfectly textured ice cream with minimal effort, providing a modern alternative to traditional methods. 

Whether you choose the hands-on approach with Xanthan Gum or the convenience of an ice cream maker, both paths lead to delicious, creamy results.
