This 6-ingredient, No-Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream is a family favorite. My daughter’s favorite fruit is strawberries and she’s always begging me to make something – anything – strawberry flavored.
The ice cream base is tangy, sweet and creamy and you’ll be amazed at how much it really tastes like cheesecake. I know I was pretty delighted when I first tried it.
The summer here has been hot and the humidity – makes it just oppressive. It almost takes your breath away as it slaps you in the face when you walk outside. It was already 81 °F this morning at 0430 as I got myself in the car and on my way to work. I thought today will be a scorcher and so it is. It’s currently 97°F with a real feel of 107°F. Later this week we are looking at 103 with a real feel of 113 so maybe I should go ahead and just make another batch now. It’s definitely a good time to stay indoors and eat ice cream. Who’s with me?
With the weather this hot, no one feels like doing anything except sitting in a tub of ice. So it’s lucky for me this recipe is so easy to prepare.
