And it's not just for the kids because if you've been looking into low-calorie ice lollies, this recipe hack is one better. You won't even know it's a healthy alternative because it tastes so good, says TikTok star @lainiecooks.

The holistic nutritionist, who has 319.2K followers on the app, uses just two ingredients in the dessert, which takes just minutes to make.

Lainie says: "I still can't over this healthy ice cream hack that has almost 60g of protein. You can make the creamiest ice cream by blending good cottage cheese with maple syrup, honey or any sweetener of your choice. 

"I even added strawberries this time to the mix to make a strawberry cheesecake flavour. Then just toss in more chopped strawberries and get some aggression out by crushing up some Graham Crackers, throw that all together throw it back in the container into the freezer for just a few hours and you literally have the creamiest, easiest strawberry cheesecake ice cream that's loaded with protein."
