This no-churn, no-machine Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Ice-Cream is super delicious and makes a great summer treat! Easy to make, and like most my ice-cream recipes this one is completely no-churn and only requires a handful of ingredients to make. I decided to post another ice cream recipe as my Melba Popsicles were really well received by you all, so thank you to everyone who left me some lovely comments- I really appreciate it! So, as my ice-cream recipes have been so popular with you all and lots of my readers have been asking me to share more strawberry recipes I knew more ice-cream was the perfect choice for today! Strawberry Cheesecake was my favourite flavour on to enjoy whilst I was on holiday last year, so I thought it would be great to make my own! I wasn’t disappointed, as this ice-cream was so, so good!
Just as creamy and delicious as ice-cream you can buy in the supermarket. I have to say this recipe tastes exactly like Häagen-Dazs ice-cream, but better (of course)! It’s lush, especially best scooped into a waffle cone or served in a bowl with lots of extra strawberries. (Also, let me apologise for the TERRIBLE pictures. My lighting was bad because it’s been super dark! So I found it hard to photograph my ice-cream before it started melting, but the taste definitely made up for those downfalls!…)
225g of strawberries, hulled & chopped into small pieces
50g of caster sugar
55ml of hot water
Ice Cream Base-
1x 397g can of sweetened condensed milk
300ml of double cream, chilled
250g of full-fat soft cream cheese (must be at room temp)
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
75g of digestive biscuits, finely crushed
30g (1tbsp) of unsalted butter, melted
1. To make the strawberry syrup: Place the chopped strawberries, sugar and hot water in a small saucepan. Heat gently, allowing the sugar to completely dissolve (stir occasionally). When there’s no sugar granules left, bring the mixture up to the simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Then blitz in a food processor/blender until smooth. Pass through a sieve into a bowl to extract the seeds. Then cool down and place in the fridge until cold and slightly thickened.
2. To make the Ice-Cream base: Whisk the cream and vanilla until just starting to thicken. Add the really soft cream cheese and then whisk for just a few moments to combine until smooth. Fold in the condensed milk.
3. For the biscuit crumbles: Mix together the crushed biscuit and melted butter.
4. To assemble: Fold in half the biscuit into the ice-cream base with half the syrup. Swirl the syrup around a little to combine the flavour throughout. Then pour into a regular loaf tin.
5. Finish by sprinkling over the remaining biscuit crumbs and swirling in the strawberry syrup. Cover with cling film and then really carefully place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight. To serve- Allow to thaw for 5 minutes, then scoop into waffle cones or into bowls. ENJOY!
Enjoy and have a great weekend guys!
