Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Anybody else have a thing for dessert? The hubs will put sugar on his sugar. The sons all inherited his sweet tooth. Me? My tastes are a bit more refined. Well maybe not really, but about the only dessert that I will consistently go ga-ga over is cheesecake. Flavor or type? Doesn’t really matter.

I’m ALL about the cheesecake.

And now I’ve found a way to perfectly bring all those flavors together into one perfectly replicated bowl of ice cream.

For real.

The flavors in this No Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream will floor you. You get all the creaminess of the ice cream, the cream cheese of the ‘cheese cake’, the fresh chunks of juicy, ripe strawberries, and then the traditional graham cracker crumb ‘crust’ in every bite. Absolutely perfection (if I say so myself). It may have taken several years, err tries, if you will but now we’ve got this no churn ice cream thing down pat.

Ahhhh. Dreams DO come true.
