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.

  1. I just tried this recipe and loved it. I used sucralose, instead of sugar, and added crushed pecans but other than that the recipe was not changed. Very good, thank you.

  2. No standing over a stove? Woo-hoo!! And I just returned the book you spoke of to the library without even turning a page. Darn it all!! I have to make this recipe. What else I love about this post is that you referred to spring as bipolar. That is hilarious; and true.

    God for you , Kate, for sticking to the summer plan! Can’t let the weather get you down, just because spring can’t get it’s act together doesn’t mean we have to suffer right? Superb recipe, so yummy, so summery! Congrats on the top 9, too!

    Yes, ice cream is definitely always in season, especially here. I am so glad that you posted this recipe because I just got my ice cream maker out yesterday thinking that I would have to make some ice cream soon. I have a beautiful punnet of strawberries and the rest of the ingredients so this was meant to be. Lovely photos too.

  9. Strawberry cheesecake is one of my all time favorite ice cream flavors. The picture of the cone just taunts me…ehehehe. It’s quite warm here so this would hit the spot this weekend.
