Light and refreshing, this dreamy, creamy dessert is perfect for steamy afternoons. Great for scooping into cones, the frozen fluff won't melt as fast as regular ice cream. Change up the recipe with a variety of frozen berries or fruits. —Debra Goforth, Newport, Tennessee

"I just have a question. I was wondering if Greek yogurt or vanilla yogurt would work as a replacement for the Cool Whipped topping? I'm trying to eat healthier and this recipe is perfect as is but may be healthier if I used yogurt. Any thoughts?"

"Very good recipe. The ingredients call for refrigerated nondairy creamer so I used liquid. I agree that we don't need to go on and on about the recipe if we don't approve. We all know which foods we shouldn't live on. Desserts eaten now and then won't kill us, in my opinion."

"Round of applause to coppertop from me! Desserts are a treat and whilst it's nice to discuss ways of changing them for people who are diabetic etc it's unfair to flame if this isn't your thing.

I hate cottage cheese with a passion so wouldn't try a recipe with it in. If you feel the same about other ingredients, walk on by.
Not all recipes are for everyone.
Now for my comments on the actual recipe.
The first time I made it I absolutely loved it and I'm making it again today at almost immediate repeat request as a birthday treat, however, this time I'm putting some broken up graham crackers in as well just to give it that extra little touch. I kind of like that in a cheesecake ice cream!!"
