I don't often buy sour cream if it's just my family eating, mostly for health reasons. So many calories. Yet, using Greek yogurt doesn't always sit well with some as it's erring on the side of too healthy (even though I love it). Try this amazing sour cream made from cottage cheese! You can use milk instead of heavy cream. I just used heavy cream for a touch of decadence. Either way, you're saving yourself loads of calories, and packing in protein. It also tastes so very good!

All cottage cheese consistencies can be different. Sometimes I even omit the milk/cream and just use lemon juice or white vinegar.

Prep Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp heavy cream or milk
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse several times.

  3. Scrape down the sides so you get all the cottage cheese chunks in shot of the blades. Pulse again, just until creamy.

This low fat sour cream is easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. It is a perfect substitute for store bought sour cream.



Using a blender or food processor, blend cottage cheese until smooth. Then put cottage cheese in a sealable container and stir in yogurt and lemon juice. Once mixed, refrigerate or use.
