I love cheesecake and I love ice cream; so this ice cream called my name as soon as I saw the recipe. It really does taste just like cheesecake frozen into perfectly scoopable bites of ice cream.

In truth, this ice cream almost tastes too much like cheesecake, and here’s why.

Do not hand someone a bowl of this without telling them it is cheesecake ice cream. You will see the most peculiar confused expressions on their faces.

I laughed so hard when I saw my family’s confusion the first time I made this ice cream. If you are expecting traditional vanilla ice cream, this is nothing close.

It took a moment for them to figure out the flavor, but once they did, it was all smiles around the table.

However, if you tell a cheesecake lover what this is, and they are expecting cheesecake, this is heaven on a spoon.

I highly recommend topping your ice cream with warm caramel sauce or berry sauce for an amazing and company-worthy dessert!

How To Make Cheesecake Ice Cream

  1. Cut the cream cheese into pieces and place it in the blender. Zest the lemon directly into the blender and then set aside the lemon to use later.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and puree until smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can enjoy it straight out of the machine for a soft serve or place in the freezer for a few hours for a firmer ice cream.
