Cheesecake Ice Cream

Today, I made cheesecake ice cream without a machine and it worked great! I had some leftover cream cheese and whipped it with some heavy cream and popped it into the freezer! It came together in a snap, and only took about 3 hours to freeze! Very decadent and totally worth the few extra calories!

Main Ingredients Needed

  • Heavy Cream – this is the base of the ice cream.
  • Sugar – to sweeten.
  • Cream Cheese – this gives it that cheesecake flavor, tangy and creamy.
  • Vanilla – to flavor.
  • Salt – to balance out the flavors.

How to Make Cheesecake Ice Cream

For full details on how to make Cheesecake Ice Cream, see the recipe card down below 🙂

1. Make Whipped Cream

In a large bowl (I used a stand mixer), whip 1 cup cold cream with 1/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

2. Whip Cream Cheese

In another bowl, whip cream cheese and remaining 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Scrape down sides and whip again. Slowly stream in 1 cup cream, vanilla, and salt. Scrape down sides and whip again.

3. Fold Mixtures Together + Freeze

Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until uniform in consistency.

Spoon into a wax paper-lined air-tight container. Smooth the top and cover with lid. Freeze until mostly solid, about 3 hours.

4. Serve!

Top with desired toppings- I used graham crackers and chocolate chips, but chocolate or caramel syrup and nuts would be great, too!

Topping Ideas

Enjoy this cheesecake ice cream with whatever you would enjoy on top of classic cheesecake! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • chocolate chips (white/milk/dark)
  • graham crackers
  • chocolate sauce
  • caramel sauce
  • strawberry sauce

    Sounds really good! I need to try this, but I wonder what it would taste like if I added just a touch of lemon juice and some diced strawberries? Hmm….
