Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream. This 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.

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 needed balance to the sweetness, but the berries and the chocolate take center stage!

  • 4 ounce cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • scant 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 8 strawberries washed and hulled
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon zest, half and half, 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 half of it into a freezer safe container. Drizzle with the cooled chocolate sauce and swirl in with a knife. Layer the rest of the ice cream on top and repeat with the chocolate swirls. Freeze at least 2 hours, until firm. After freezing overnight, this is a very firm ice cream, due to the water content of the berries. Let it rest 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!!!!

    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!5 stars
