This ice cream tastes exactly like cheesecake. It’s such a unique flavor that I’ve actually confused guests a time or two when serving this cheesecake ice cream. Have you tried cheesecake ice cream?

In this recipe, the cream cheese and the sour cream provide plenty of tang and that is balanced by the sweet strawberries and the sugar. A squeeze of lemon brightens the flavors and ties it all together.

Turtle cheesecake popsicles are swirled with caramel, then frozen into popsicles. Once frozen, they’re dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with nuts. I absolutely love these and my kids can’t get enough of them.

This ice cream can be made with fresh or frozen berries. If you are using frozen berries allow them to thaw at room temperature for about half an hour before attempting to smash them.

To make the strawberry puree, smash the strawberries in a medium size saucepan. Add the sugar and bring it to a boil.

Reduce the heat to simmer and while stirring constantly, cook for 5 minutes. When it’s done, remove it from the heat and allow the puree to cool completely. Then chill it in the freezer while the ice cream is churning.

The puree needs to be truly COLD before it is added to the ice cream.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Recipe

Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a blender. Puree until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is almost finished churning, remove the cold strawberry puree from the freezer and stir well.

When the ice cream finishes churning, transfer it to a freezer-safe container. Drizzle with about two-thirds of the strawberry puree, reserving the remaining puree for topping, if desired.

Use a knife to swirl the berry sauce through the ice cream. Freeze for a couple of hours before serving.
