Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream is an intense strawberry burst of flavor with melting chocolate pieces and a creamy vanilla base.

I was surprised by just how much this ice cream reminds me of chocolate-covered strawberries.

Strawberry Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Swirl

This ice cream started as a variation of my Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. However, the strawberry flavor here is much more dominant with just a hint of the original cheesecake flavor.

The lemon and sour cream add a terrific balance to the sweetness, but the berries and the chocolate take center stage.

The combination of these flavors is fantastic together. Each bite tastes like a frozen chocolate-covered strawberry!

  1. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon zest, cream, vanilla, and salt in the blender. Blend for a minute or two, until smooth.
  2. Add the berries and puree until smooth once again. Pour into ice cream machine and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. While the ice cream is churning, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small glass dish in the microwave for about 1 minute at 50% power. Stir together until smooth. Let cool.
  4. When the ice cream has finished churning, scoop about a third of it into a freezer safe container. Drizzle with a couple tablespoons of the cooled chocolate sauce. Scoop another third of the ice cream over the chocolate drizzle and repeat the drizzle and one more ice cream layer. Drizzle any remaining melted chocolate on top.
  5. Freeze at least 2 hours, until firm.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins
Servings: 5 1/2 cup servings

Ingredients 

  • 4 ounce cream cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • cup sugar
  • ½ tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup heavy cream or half and half
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 fresh sweet strawberries, stems removed
  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  • Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon zest, cream, vanilla, and salt in the blender. Blend for a minute or two, until smooth.
  • Add the berries and puree until smooth once again. Pour into ice cream machine and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • While the ice cream is churning, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small glass dish in the microwave for about 1 minute at 50% power. Stir together until smooth. Let cool.
  • When the ice cream has finished, scoop about a third of it into a freezer safe container. Drizzle with a couple tablespoons of the cooled chocolate sauce. Scoop another third of the ice cream over the chocolate drizzle and repeat the drizzle and one more ice cream layer. Drizzle any remaining melted chocolate on top.
  • Freeze at least 2 hours, until firm. Once frozen, this will be a very firm ice cream, due to the water content of the berries. Allow it to warm at room temperature on the counter for at least 20 minutes prior to scooping. Enjoy!

    You, my friend, are a temptress!!! There, I said it! 🙂 This ice cream looks and sounds seriously decadent! My ice cream maker is screaming for me to make this!!!!

  2. Andrea Dembo says

    The recipe is confusing. You say in the ingredient list 8 straws washed & hulled. Ok-works for me.
    In the directions you say to add the berries And the purée. How many are we supposed to purée and how many do we leave whole or cut up?

      Hi Andrea,

      You’ll add the berries to the other ingredients and then puree everything in the blender until smooth. I hope that helps!

      Enjoy!

    Mary, this ice cream is just… amazing! I made a batch a couple of days ago. The first evening we had it atop a warm homemade strawberry tart and last night we gobbled it up with fruit salad and jelly! Awesome! So glad I found this!
    Thank you so much for posting such a great-tasting delight!5 stars
