Strawberry and cheesecake all in home made ice cream

Lovely lovely lovely lovely home made ice cream lurks in my freezer!


Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream (from Kraft Foods)

80z cream cheese – softened

14oz can condensed milk

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 tsp lemon zest

1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries

3 graham crackers (I used Trader Joes) broken up – I put them in a zip loc bag and bashed them quickly with a rolling pin

Mix the cream cheese, condensed milk, cream and zest until smooth.  Freeze until almost solid (about 4 hours).

Beat the cream cheese mix again until smooth.  Blend the strawberries to a sauce and add to the cream cheese with the graham crackers.

Freeze until firm.  Take out of the freezer 15 mins before serving.

Now, I want to try this with other berries like blueberries and even different cookies.  I will report back on my experiments!


Here are some more photos I took at the Lantern Exhibit at the Botanical Gardens.  I took these on my iPhone using Hipstamatic, Instagram and Shake it Photo.
