Whipped Cottage Cheese Dessert Cups {Low-carb}

UPDATED · PUBLISHED BY Marjory Pilley · This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Jump to Recipe

Whipped Cottage Cheese Dessert Cups are simple, satisfying, high in protein, and perfect for low-carb or keto diets and anyone who loves cheesecake…but doesn’t want the extra work and calories!

Savor each bite and satisfy the urge for something indulgent! I usually enjoy it after dinner. But it’s equally perfect for breakfast or as a snack, much like Pumpkin Cottage Cheese and Overnight Chia Seed Pudding.

The ingredient list couldn’t be easier: cottage cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract. 

The transformation to a simple elegant dessert comes from whipping cottage cheese into a smooth creamy custard. If you pass on curds and whey (as they’re also known) because you can’t get past the lumps, then this recipe is for you!

How to «whip» cottage cheese

Use a food processor or blender to make cottage cheese the consistency of pudding. An immersion blender and a NutriBullet can do the job too. It takes about one minute. 

Add sweetener and vanilla to the food processor at the same time OR it can be done later.

Tip: Process the entire tub while you have everything out for a quick dessert when you want it.

Types of cottage cheese

Much like dairy milk, cottage cheese is classified as regular, low-fat/reduced fat, or non-fat based on the amount of milk fat. You’ll also find small versus large curds as well as low-sodium and flavored versions. 

You can even find an already smooth version by Friendship Dairies if it’s available in your area.

They are all super healthy according to Healthline and any of these products will work in this recipe.

We used a full-fat brand that is consistent with low-carb diets, including the new keto-friendly South Beach Diet.

Types of sweetener

A half cup of cottage cheese needs the equivalent of 2 teaspoons of sugar to give it a dessert taste (in my opinion. ) Adjust it to taste! Low-carb options we suggest include:

  • Erythritol (such as Swerve)
  • Monk fruit
  • Stevia

All-natural options, which aren’t low-carb, but also have a place at the table:

  • Honey
  • Maple syrup

Topping ideas

Doctor up your whipped cottage cheese dessert any way you like or enjoy it with nothing at all. 

  • Dark chocolate chips — use Stevia sweetened chips to keep down the carb count.
  • Berries, especially raspberries
  • Nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, almonds
  • Cinnamon 

Note: Depending upon the topping, you may be able to use less sweetener! 

It’s not my beloved cheesecake. BUT, it is a healthy treat that you can enjoy whenever you want!
