I did add some strawberry topping to top off this little sundae. My kids loved it. Especially my oldest who loves the blizzard from DQ. Here's the recipe.
Strawberry Cheesecake Chunk Ice Cream
11/4c. Heavy Cream
3/4c. whole milk
1/2 vanilla bean and seeds scraped out
add these all to a pan and Bring this to almost simmer and remove bean.
While that is heating up beat:
4 oz. of cream cheese softened
1/4c. jello cheesecake pudding mix
3 egg yolks
Temper this with the heated cream and then put back on stove and cook until it coats the back of a wooden spoon. Remove and add:
Set aside to cool
1 lb fresh strawberries or a pkg of the sliced sweetened frozen ones
if using fresh add 1/3c to 1/2c. sugar and puree. (You will probably have some leftover for topping)
chill both mixtures in the fridge overnight or for at least 5 hours.
then pour 2/3c. of strawberry puree into the cream mixture and freezed according to manufacture of your ice cream maker.
The last five minutes of churning when it has gotten nice and thick add:
1 to 2 slices of cheesecake cut up into bite size chunks
you can either buy this or make your own but this makes it so yummy and sets it apart from just "plain Cheesecake Ice cream" Either way it is delicious but I always have to take it up a notch.
Freeze in a freezer container for 4 to 6 hours to ripen.
Enjoy!!! I did!!
