How to Make this Recipe
To make the Strawberry Nice Cream:
Start with the Strawberry Nice Cream so it has time to set while you may the cones!
Steps 1 +2:
Place all the ingredients in a high powered blender, pulse until smooth.
Pour the nice cream into a rectangle loaf pan or like dish. You want it to be long enough that there is only about 1 1/2-inch thickness to the nice cream when it freezes. This allows for an even freeze. Place it into the freezer.
After about an hour (or at least 20 minutes before you want to serve it), remove from freezer and let soften up. Serve as desired!
To make the cones:
Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe dish in 15-second intervals, or about 30-seconds.
Stir, then place the cone top directly into the melted chocolate, then immediately into the sprinkles. Repeat until finished.
Step 3 + 4:
Admire your beautiful work as they harden on the counter until ready to serve!
When ready to dive in, use an ice cream scoop to spoon into your cones or grab a spoon and enjoy straight from the container!
While maybe a little DIY-esque in the picture, this sure pleased by toddler!
- Feel free to sub in dairy-free yogurt and cottage cheese of choice.
- To keep these completely added sugar free, dip the cone top in yogurt then place in desired topping, like crushed dried berries. Freeze until yogurt hardens and serve immediately when removed from the freezer.
- The cones work wonderfully as a fun, crunchy topping mixed into the nice cream too!

Strawberry Nice Cream
Strawberry Nice Cream
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 1 cup low fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 6 each cake cones
- 3 tbsps white chocolate chips optional
- 2 tbsps sprinkles
- 3 each fresh strawberries chopped
To make the Strawberry Nice Cream
- Begin by placing all nice cream ingredients in a high powered blender. Process until smooth.
- Pour nice cream into a rectangle loaf pan or like dish and use a spatula to spread evenly. Keep the nice cream to no more than 1 1/2-inches thick from the base of the pan to the top of the nice cream to help it freeze evenly.
- Set in the freezer for 1 hour. Remove and serve, or take out 10 to 20 minutes prior to serving if you have let it sit longer than 3 hours in the freezer.
To make the cones
- Melt chocolate in a microwave safe dish in 15-second intervals (usually twice.) Place top of cake cone into chocolate, then role in sprinkles or desired topping. Set on counter to let harden. Repeat with remaining cones.
- When ready to enjoy, scoop nice cream into cones and top with any remaining sprinkles!
- When serving leftovers that have been in the freezer longer than 3+ hours, they will be extremely hard to scoop out. Be sure to allow at least 10 to 20 minutes prior to serving to allow the nice cream to soften on the counter.
- If you prefer a very smooth, yogurt texture, leave this in the fridge over the freezer!
- Nice cream best consumed within 10 days when stored in the freezer, and 5 days if stored in the fridge.
