It’s easy to make delicious, fresh homemade strawberry cheesecake ice cream, with an ice cream maker and only a few common ingredients!
I love cheesecake, and I love strawberries. Believe it or not, I also love cheesecake with strawberry topping! So it stands to reason that I would also love homemade Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream!
It’s fun making homemade ice cream in my little electric ice cream maker that I received several years ago for my birthday. The kind I have is perfect for a quick batch… no ice cubes and no salt to freeze it.
It just sits on my kitchen counter waiting patiently for me. I pour in the ice cream mixture and a little over 20 minutes later… boom… ice cream! It’s fun (and dangerous) to be able to make homemade ice cream, even when it’s snowing or pouring down rain outside.

How I Came Up With Recipe
This recipe for strawberry cheesecake ice cream is an easy recipe I tried one summer while experimenting with a LOT of ice cream recipes. For this recipe I added in a few ingredients that I thought would make a great ice cream to my standard vanilla base.
Did I mention that I ate all the different kinds of ice cream I made that summer? Well… SOMEONE had to do it. Heh heh heh. This recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream tasted great, and is very simple to make. Here’s how:
How To Make Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
Place cleaned, stemmed, cored and sliced fresh strawberries, sugar and lemon juice into a blender. Blend on high until mixture is pureed. Add 8 ounces of room temperature cream cheese (cut into chunks) to the liquid. Blend again until mixture is well pureed.
Transfer the strawberry/cream cheese mixture to a large bowl. Stir in whipping cream, milk, and vanilla extract, to fully combine. This is you strawberry cheesecake ice cream base.
Pour the ice cream mixture into the cannister of an ice cream machine. Freeze, per manufacturer instructions until done. My beloved ice cream machine takes just over 20 minutes to freeze to soft-serve consistency.
The strawberry cheesecake ice cream is ready to eat right then and there, but I suggest transferring ice cream to a freezable container with a lid, and freeze for 2-3 additional hours to firm ice cream up to a more “scoopable” consistency.
That’s it! When the ice cream is done, grab a big ol’ scoop, plop down into the nearest chair and enjoy this delicious strawberry cheesecake ice cream. Sure hope you enjoy it… we sure do!
