i did substitute fat free half and half to make it lighter and also reduced fat cream cheese. so easy to make and very good and creamy!
Absolutely delicious!!!! I just purchased the cuisineart ice cream maker and this recipe was my first choice!!!!! It was the perfect choice for my first time trying to make ice cream! My husband and daughters raved about it and wanted more. If you like strawberry cheesecake and or want to impress your guests....definitely try this one! After mixing and before chilling for the hour, I added extra mini chunks of the frozen strawberries! Creamy, fruity and Yummy!!
Awesome!!!!! Cant even express how yummy. Satisfied my pregnancy craving for something sweet and i happened to have everything in my fridge!! I did add a swirl of grahm cracker crumbs at the end and upped the cream to 1 1/2 cups. Thank you!! ps. i would recommend cutting the cream cheese in half. i felt it was just a little too much for such a small amount of ice cream.
Great flavor! I did make the classic rookie mistake by not creaming sugar and cream cheese together first. Yummy stuff!
I have made this twice now - love it. The fresh stawberry flavor pops out and the cheesecake flavor is subtle and nice. First time just like the recipe except I used fat free half & half and added some fresh slices of strawberry ( didn't care for the frozen strawberries in the ice cream). Second time I made this with fat free half & half and fat free cream cheese - still very good but you lose the cheesecake flavor that is so good in the original recipe. Next time I am going to make this with some real half and half and regular cream cheese and put the soft ice cream from the machine into a cooked graham cracker crust and serve it like cheese cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top.
I made this last night and it was to-die-for. I don't like strawberry ice cream, but wanted to make this for my husband. As it turns out, I liked it more than him! It was awesome and so, so easy! I didn't want to go out and get half-and-half so I found out that I could use 1/2 cup whole milk and 1/2 cup whipping cream instead - worked like a charm. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definitely be making it again! PS: I also shared it with my 13 month old today - another fan!
Yummy! We made this tonight and it was like having a little bowl of cheesecake with strawberries. Fantastic! My kids and I loved it. Thanks for the great recipe!
This was very good...creamy and an excellent flavor. I was even out of sugar, so I used powered sugar with great success. Will make again! :)
Absolutely devine! I had some frozen cream cheese in the freezer, fresh strawberries...all I had to buy was the half and half. I leave my ice cream canister in the freezer during the summer months for easy convenience! I served this with my recipe Fresh Strawberry Marmalade (223183) Kudos on posting a great find!
The perfect ice cream! The flavor of the strawberries really stands out. I love that it's not too sweet... store bought ice cream can be cloyingly sweet, but this is just sweet enough. I thought it would be too cheesy with a whole brick of cream cheese, and was tempted to halve it, but I'm glad I didn't. The flavors here are very well balanced. Thank you for posting this!
