A super quick 3-ingredient recipe for perfect keto chocolate cottage cheese.
Even though it’s dairy, cottage cheese is one of the top keto diet foods you can easily consume on a daily basis. One standard package of cottage cheese usually has less than 4 g of net carbs. Unless you are on a dairy or lactose free program, you can have one or two packages of cottage cheese a day.
Cottage cheese is quite tasty just by itself. However, with just a few simple extra ingredients you can turn it into a quick and delicious on-the-go dessert. You guessed it. I am talking sweet chocolate cottage cheese.
My idea to “upgrade” my plain cottage cheese a bit was born while I was baking my keto peanut butter cookies. I was a bit hungry and was looking for ways to add more calories, fat and taste to my current cottage-cheese meal. The idea came very spontaneously but turned out to be really ingenious.
So here it comes. A super quick and super easy recipe for chocolate cottage cheese that tastes almost like my keto chocolate mousse. The main difference is that my chocolate cottage cheese is more of a protein bomb instead of a fat bomb my other chocolate desserts are.
Who said you cannot turn your cottage cheese into a small chocolate dessert? Fortunately no one!

Make sure to use fresh cottage cheese (in the liquid form). Soured cottage cheese won't make such a delicious chocolate dessert.
Add cocoa powder. Add as much as you like. 15 g is just for reference (the amount I used).
Add erythritol and/or stevia. Mix all the ingredients and taste your chocolate cottage cheese.
Dissolve a slice of butter and add it to your cottage cheese.
Mix it all up again and consume.
Feel free to make sweetener or cocoa powder amount adjustments. You can also trade butter for heavy whipping cream. Chocolate without any added fat (neither butter nor whipping cream) also tastes awesome.

Great way to make boring cottage cheese really tasty chocolate pudding.
I would add a scoop of creamy peanut butter for more fat. Mmmm! My mom would make a blended cottage cheese blintz filling for crepes using nutmeg, vanilla, sweetener and almond flavoring. Sometimes I like to eat it that way without a crepe…I guess crepes aren’t very Keto friendly?
