Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Recipe

Hi, can I speak to Spring? Hello, Spring!?! SPRING!!! Please baby girl, pick up, we need you! 45 degrees in the middle of May? Come on, already!

(There was some talk about global warming – is that why we have to deal with Spring’s bipolar issues? Just wondering.)

Well whether the weather (say that again? whether the weather Smile ) decides to behave as it should, or not, I am still going forward with my scheduled summery recipe. Besides, ice cream is always in season. Winking smile

By now I really thought that this weather would be screaming for ice cream. I thought that Ana and I would be in the backyard playing in her kiddie pool, sipping on some drinks, watering the garden, and eating ice cream on the patio. My ice cream in a bowl, and hers in a cone. Not happening, yet.

The recipe for this cheesecake ice cream comes from David Lebovitz’s book, The Perfect Scoop. I was just looking for a creamy ice cream that didn’t include for me to sit above the stove and cook up a custard – asking for too much? I don’t think so. I almost always skip the ice cream and make frozen yogurt, but this recipe was too good for me to pass up because you can’t talk about rich and creamy ice cream until you try this scoop of deliciousness!

And just for kicks and giggles, I added some strawberries.

    SF has been cold and cloudy but today it’s finally sunny! Oh I wish really wish that I have an ice cream maker…without it I can’t make it right? Your strawberry cheesecake ice cream is AMAZING! In fact this is actually my favorite flavor when I go to an ice cream shop (I always debate if I should get chocolate one, but just can’t pass this flavor). I think I should invest money on buying ice cream maker, just for this recipe. I’m serious! I’m going to send this link to my hubby. Hopefully your great pictures are convincing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Is it really 45 degrees in Chi town city?!??!? WHOOLLY cow! I am sorry! ๐Ÿ™ Thank goodness for ice cream!

  5. Beautiful strawberries, beautiful ice cream, beautiful weath… oh wait ๐Ÿ™‚ The weather is pretty bad here as well. I guess that just like you I’ll have to deal with the first two and get over cold, rainy San Fran. I wish we at least had a fireplace at home! Then I’d be able to eat this delicious ice cream next to it… (obviously, not too close!) But don’t worry. That won’t stop me from making this recipe ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cream cheese in ice cream is new to me but I can see how it works. My ice cream maker has been in hibernation since I moved last summer. I really need to bring it out to play. The huge chunks of strawberries are mouthwatering!
