Skinny Oreo Ice-Cream

Hey friends!! I really cannot believe that it’s been so long since I last wrote a recipe (which I hope you’ve checked out, because those healthy oreos were fab if I may say so myself!), but my laptop is still broken and stuff. Thing is, I don’t know when I’ll get it back, and mum is not keen on lending me hers (she’s hooked on that Breaking Bad thing and won’t leave the computer so we have 0.0001% chances of me getting to use it so as to blog about oreos). Besides that, I’m been really really busy with finals, and I really want (and need!) to get good grades, so some time off the blog is pretty much needed right now.

Good thing that exams are going awesome – thank you for all your support and wishes, you’re my favorite and really help me push trough these hectic weeks. If I could, I’d send every one of you a ton of cookies just to let you know how I care about your lovely words. But alas I’m not rich nor I have the time to bake 43824983794 cookies so you’ll have to make them yourself hehe 😉


Dreams do come true with this Skinny Oreo Ice-Cream: high protein, low fat, low sugar and gluten free. This is THE BOMB!


I’ve been missing you lots guys. Don’t worry though – I’ve been creeping on you from my phone and I follow quite a lot of you on Instagram, so I know you’ve been cooking tons of yummy stuff I’m dying to know more about (yes, that’s secret code for “send all that food to me!!!!!!”). If you want, you can follow me as well so you know I’m alive and probably eating more oatmeal than a normal human being should whoops who’s perfect anyway.

Aaaaannnnnnnddddd, if you’re interested, this is a quick update about my life (yeah you can totally scroll down past this and read this recipe because the sooner you get the ice – cream THE BETTER):

-I’ve pretty much been studying my ass off in the library. Can’t complain because, as for the moment, I’m getting such good grades which hopefully allow me to go to the uni I want!!!

-Besides all that studying and camping in the library, I had one of the best-est weekends of my life with my friends. We attended to a local music festival and oh, boys, did we have such fun nights!!! Gigs + booze + cookies + friends = happiness. It was lovely to spend three sleepless nights dancing instead of revising. I’m missing those days so much right now – being back to school and real life is hard, send cookies please SOS this is a serious matter.

Anyway, life’s been good and it makes me happy to think that my prom is in less than 3 weeks (!!!!!!!). Though we have these exams to apply to the university in June so it’s not as if I was getting some rest days soon BUT PROM DAY. Fiesta. I’ve already bought a dress (not the one I’d dreamed about but it’s so cute as wellllllllll. I’ll show you soon guys!) and I’m so looking forward to that night. And there’s only a month left until summer which means more music festivals oh yes. Who else is crying because she can’t afford going to Reading festival?????

Let’s talk ice-cream now, because this one is worth a thousand mentions. It’s creamy and velvety, as if tons of cream we involved but surprise: it’s actually cottage cheese, which means that you’re getting a second (and maybe a third!) serving here. I won’t judge you hey! And it’s sooooo full of protein, calcium and lots of nutrients as well.

Bonus points that this is also gluten free without the weird additives and thickeners (did I hear winner?? I think yes!). And refined sugar free, yet it tastes better than anything that you can buy from a store.

You know that I’m pretty passionate about stuff (or obsessive if you wish), and I can honestly say that this creamy concoction is on the list of stuff I will be making non-stop.

Hope you give it a try because it’s so good!

Skinny Oreo Ice-Cream
Serves 6
Creamy, sweet and delicious to boot. You won't believe that this ice-cream is high protein and gluten free!
Write a review
  1. 750 grams full fat cottage cheese
  2. 3 tbsp. raw honey
  3. 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  4. 1 tbsp. boiling water
  5. 3 sheets gelatin
  6. 10 DIY healthy oreos
  1. Soak gelatine sheets in cold water for 10 minutes.
  2. Squeeze excess water and dissolve in one tbsp. boiling water.
  3. Blend cottage cheese, vanilla, honey and the gelatine mixture in a food processor until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add in crushed oreos.
  5. Churn according to your ice-cream maker instructions or freeze straight away (it won't be as creamy this way, so let it thaw a bit before eating for optimum texture).
  6. Enjoy!
  1. Full fat cottage cheese is best. Fat free doesn't taste good here, and I'm speaking from experience!
  2. Gelatine improves the texture, but you can omit it if you follow a vegetarian diet.

I’ll try my best to comment on your blogs and stuff but you might now see me often because I can’t use this computer all the time :'( But I’m trying guys, I really do! I’ll be back to proper blogging on June, ok?

Hugs to you and best of luck with finals to you who are still in school/uni!

    I have to admit, first I fear this ice cream. Cottage cheese? But then, I’m so INTRIGUED! I think it’s a must try -it may revolutionalize my view on ice cream.

  • Reply Allie May 14, 2014 at 5:25 am

    So happy to hear you are studying hard, making good grades, and still finding time to have fun and eat delicious food! Your ice cream looks like such a treat- I almost can’t believe how healthy it is! Keep up the great work, Consuelo, and have fun at prom!!!

    Wow — I can’t believe this creamy ice cream was made using cottage cheese! I can’t wait to try out this recipe — especially since I can eat twice as much as I could if I were having regular ice cream. That’s a win in my book!

    Good luck with finals!
