Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

 

Growing up in New England, Memorial Day always signaled the opening of the seasonal homemade ice cream shops. These were the kind of shops, where the cows would be roaming in the back and the same people worked every summer. After a long winter, there was nothing better than a freshly made double scoop of your favorite ice cream. I always went to the same place and always ordered my favorite flavor of ice cream – chocolate chip cookie dough. To this day, every time I go back to visit, I still head to the same little ice cream stand and order the same flavor. It looks and tastes the same as it did over twenty years ago.

 

With the forecast for the next 10 days around 90 degrees here in Florida, I’m preparing myself for plenty of ice cream, popsicles and milkshakes. There is no better way to cool off than with a refreshing and sweet summertime treat. And since strawberries are plentiful this time of the year, I love making homemade Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream.

Rich, creamy and always fresh, homemade ice cream is better than anything you will ever buy at the grocery store. A few simple ingredients combine to create a flavor packed summertime treat. You can’t go wrong with the strawberry and cheesecake combination. Fresh berries are folded into a smooth and creamy cheesecake ice cream with graham cracker crumbs sprinkled over the top.

Ice cream is one of the easiest treats you can make. If you have never made it before, I strongly encourage you to make it this summer. Once you make it, you will never go back to the store-bought varieties. The flavor combinations are endless and it is a treat that the entire family will love.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries
  • graham cracker crumbs, for topping

Directions:

  1. Place the cream cheese in a medium heatproof bowl; set aside.
  2. In another medium heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks and 6 tablespoons sugar; set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the cream, milk, and 6 tablespoons sugar.
  4. Stir until the mixture approaches a bare simmer, and reduce heat to medium.
  5. Scoop 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture and slowly pour the hot mixture into the egg yolks, whisking the eggs constantly.
  6. Repeat, adding another 1/2 cup of hot cream to the bowl with the egg yolks.
  7. Using a heatproof spatula, stir the cream in the saucepan as you slowly pour the egg-and-cream mixture from the bowl into the pan.
  8. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens, coats the back of the spatula and reaches a temperature of 170 to 175 degrees F.
  9. Pour the custard through a fine-mesh strainer into the bowl with the cream cheese.
  10. Whisk until smooth, then set the bowl into an ice water bath, stirring the base occasionally until it is cool.
  11. Remove from the ice water bath, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate mixture overnight.
  12. After the mixture has chilled, stir together strawberries and remaining tablespoon of sugar in a medium bowl.
  13. Let the berries stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  14. Add vanilla to ice cream mixture; stir to combine.
  15. Freeze ice cream mixture in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturers instructions.
  16. Fold strawberries into ice cream and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  17. Top with graham cracker crumbs before serving, as desired.

  1. Made this for friends over a beach weekend, very good!! I substituted the fresh strawberry for canned strawberry pie mix and added chopped Nilla wafers. Using canned strawberry pie mix, the strawberries weren’t hard at all. Will make again!

  2. Made this yesterday and it was fantastic! One question: how do you keep the strawberries from becoming rock hard in the ice cream? While I definitely had strawberry flavor, the pieces were a little off-putting because they were so hard against the fantastic texture of the ice cream.
    Thanks for a new summer fave!

  5. Kinda sorta drooling over this ice cream! Wow! And your pictures are insanity!

  6. This looks so creamy and fresh with those beautiful strawberries! Delicious combination. 🙂

  7. Mmmmm! You can’t get much better than fruit and cheesecake flavors, and when it’s in ice cream form…oh my goodness! That just takes things to a whole new level! Can’t wait to give this one a try! 🙂

  8. Loving this ice cream bowl, screams summer!

  9. This ice cream is totally calling to me, but big time. I have one question before proceeding. After the Strawberries sit with the small amount of sugar, I am guessing that some juices will form. Are the Strawberries AND the juices folded into the finished ice cream?
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!
    Cheers,
    Jeff

    • Yes, the strawberries and juices are folded into the finished ice cream. Since there is only a small amount of sugar mixed with the strawberries there is not very much juice. Enjoy!

  10. Drooling over a bowl of this ice cream! It looks incredible, thanks for sharing Ashley and Carrian!

  11. Love this ice cream dish. Our whole family would love a bowl or two.
