Jenn over at a Cook’s Quest has done it again. She made a scrumptious recipe my kids are now begging me to make constantly! This recipe is perfect for those hot summer days! I mean, that picture looks so good I want to lick it!

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Ice Cream

Ice Cream Base:

1/2 pint heavy cream
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbl. fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a mixing bowl with and electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Add the sour cream, mix until well combined. Add the heavy cream, lemon juice and vanilla mixing until it is very thick.  Cover and chill 2-3 hours or over night.

Make the strawberry sauce while the base is chilling.  This will allow the sauce to cool enough.

Take the chilled mixture and beat until creamy.  Pour into your ice cream mixer and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Strawberry Sauce:

2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
2 Tbl. sugar
2 tsp. water

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pot over medium heat.  Stir frequently.  When the strawberries begin to break down begin mashing them with a large fork or potato masher.  Continue cooking over medium to low heat stirring frequently until reduced into a thick sauce.  Keep an eye on this you don’t want burnt strawberries with your ice cream!  When it is thick, remove from the heat and allow to cool completely before adding it to the ice cream.

When the ice cream is set, scoop out some of the ice cream into a bowl.  Pour on some of the strawberry sauce.  Add more ice cream and repeat the strawberry sauce.  Once you have all the ice cream in the bowl with the desired amount of strawberries uses a offset spatula or butter knife to kind of swirl the strawberry throughout.  Place in the freezer to hard set the ice cream or eat immediately if you like a soft serve.

  • you should add graham crackers in it to get the crust effect. Just follow the directions for crust but crumble throughout the ice cream. I believe it’s a few tbls. of butter crushed graham crackers and a 1/2 cup of sugar.

  • Yum! I have all the ingredients on hand so I am making this for dessert tonight!
