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.
