Divine Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Recipe by MommyMakes
READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium high heat just to the point where it begins to foam up then remove from heat.
  • Meanwhile, in a stainless steel bowl, beat cream cheese, egg yolks, and sugar until light and fluffy (about two minutes).
  • Slowly pour the heated cream into the mixture, be sure to continue whisking constantly so that the eggs do not curdle, strain out any lumps before the next step.
  • Place the bowl over a saucepan of water and, stirring constantly, cook until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon (the film of custard on the back of the spoon, when raised, should stay in place even when you draw a line through it with your finger).
  • Immediately remove the custard from the heat and stir to cool so it does not overcook.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and the strawberry puree.
  • Cover and allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate several hours.
  • Process the cold custard in your ice cream machine according to your manufacturer's instructions.
  • Once made, stir in fresh chopped strawberries if desired and store in freezer.
