This is my delicious twist on the TikTok viral cottage cheese ice cream! You only need four ingredients to make this high-protein brown butter vanilla cottage cheese ice cream.


  • 2 cups full-fat creamy cottage cheese*
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter


  1. Brown the butter in a small saucepan until bubbly and dark golden brown. Stir it continuously, careful not to burn it.  Remove from heat and allow the butter to cool slightly.
  2. Add cottage cheese, honey, brown butter, and vanilla to a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

  3. Add mixture to loaf pan and place in the freezer for about 5 hours or until completely frozen.
  4. Remove from the freezer and let thaw for about 10 minutes until you can easily scoop it. Enjoy!

  • Any natural cottage cheese, including lactose-free cottage cheese, will work. Extra creamy, full-fat gives the best texture.
