This Whipped Cottage Cheese recipe is the most easy high-protein dip for food platters or to spread into sandwiches.

My passion for cottage cheese recipes continues! After sharing my ranch cottage cheese dip, it’s time for this whipped cottage cheese.

Many cooks are wary of trying cottage cheese because they don’t like its curd texture. But whipped cottage cheese is about breaking the cottage cheese curd into a smooth, creamy texture similar to ricotta.

How To Make Whipped Cottage Cheese

The easiest way to make Whipped Cottage Cheese is to use a food processor and a bunch of simple wholesome ingredients.

Ingredients

All you need to make this cottage cheese recipe are:

  • Cottage Cheese – I use low-fat cottage cheese, but for a creamier texture, try full-fat cottage cheese.
  • Almond Milk is a must to lighten the texture and make the cottage cheese ultra-smooth and creamy. You can use any milk, like skim milk, oat milk, or soy milk.
  • Lemon Juice – This adds a delicious tangy flavor to the dip.
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – This adds flavor to the cottage cheese that is naturally tasteless.
  • Garlic Powder or fresh crushed garlic.

Preparation

Add cottage cheese, milk, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the bowl of a food processor or blender.

Blend on medium-high speed until the cottage cheese curd turns into a creamy smooth texture.

If the cottage cheese mixture is too grainy or difficult to blend, add extra milk one tablespoon at a time until the texture suits your liking.

You may have to stop the food processor a few time and scrape down the sides of the bowl until all the cottage cheese turn into a creamy texture.

Taste and adjust with salt, pepper, or spices.

Feel free to spice up the How to make Whipped Cottage Cheese with some of the spices below, from 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspoon.

  • Onion powder
  • Cumin
  • Paprika
  • Dried coriander
  • Za’atar

You can also blend in some fresh herbs like 1/4 cup of :

  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh dill
  • Fresh Italian Parsley

If you don’t have a food processor, you can blend the ingredients into a high-speed blender, but you will need a tamper attachment to help push the ingredients next to the blade.

Serving

This Whipped Cottage Cheese recipe is perfect for serving as a high-protein breakfast or snack, along with eggs or toast.

But it’s also a great party appetizer to add to a charcuterie board. Add the cottage cheese to a bowl and top with some extra olive oil, freshly chopped herbs, and sesame seeds.

Then try to dip some crackers, chips, or raw vegetables for a high-protein dip.

As A Dip

Some of the best food to dip in cottage cheese are:

  • Carrot sticks
  • Gherkins
  • Cucumber sticks
  • Radish
  • Seed or nutcrackers like my flax seed crackers or almond flour crackers
  • Celery sticks

In A Meal

You can use whipped cottage cheese as a swap to high fat white sauce like cheese bechamel in a lasagna recipe.

As A Spread

Replace high-fat mayonnaise in sandwiches with whipped cottage cheese. It adds sesame creaminess plus proteins that keep you full for hours.

Or, if you are bored of avocado toast for breakfast, try cottage cheese toast and top with fresh vegetables.

Serving It Sweet

Did you know you can use this recipe with sweet toppings? Skip the salt and garlic in the whipped cottage cheese if using sweet toppings and instead, add a drizzle of honey or vanilla extract.

Serve it as a dessert on toast with fresh fruits like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, or any fresh berries.

Plus, regular cottage cheese has fewer calories than mayonnaise or avocado and it has more proteins. So it’s a great addition to a healthy breakfast or lunch.
