My husband likes strawberry cheesecake ice cream so I told him I would make him some. He said “Don’t bother, I won’t like it”. He thinks homemade things, like ice cream, don’t taste the same as the store bought. I said they don’t taste the same they’re better! Still would he try it? No.
I didn’t figure he would. I still made it though and even tasted it…too sweet for me but, all my sweet tooth friends will enjoy. My girlfriend lucked out and got the strawberry cheesecake ice cream. At least I made someone happy 🙂
Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
2 c. strawberries, hulled and coarsely chopped
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. milk
1 T. lemon juice
1/8 t. salt
1/2 c. heavy cream
Combine strawberries, cream cheese, sugar, milk, lemon juice, salt and heavy cream into a blender. Puree until smooth.
Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour (or more is fine).
Pour mixture into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s directions.
Mine took about 30 minutes. Put in freezer to ripen for at least 3 hours.
(I apologize for the poor picture quality).
Yield: 1 quart
Recipe from One Perfect Bite.
*Update: Once my husband heard that my friend really liked the ice cream, then he said he’d try it. Guess I have to make another batch 😉 Silly man.
