A great and light frozen treat for the summer! I substituted fresh strawberries, sweetened with sugar for the frozen sweetened ones. This would be great spooned into a graham crust too! My family loved it! Will definitely make again.....maybe with peaches next time!

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.YUMMMMY!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!!

OMGosh people!! You all act like you are eating this all day long every day of your life. It's a fraking DESSERT!! I've made it w/ low fat cream cheese, low fat non dairy creamer, low fat cool whip & it was delicious. BUT as w/ all things MODERATION IS KEY - stop complaining about ingredients if you clearly are not going to make the recipe, it's ANNOYING!!

Honest fat from cream cheese, cream, butter, etc. are GOOD for you. It's the fake fats and chemicals that aren't.

I have a question. Is the refrigerated nondairy creamer a liquid or power?

I made this for a camping trip & shared w/others campers. One young fella in his 80's came by & said "the only thing wrong is..there just wasn't enough." I've made it 3 times since and EVERYONE loves it.
