How to make ice cream
Sometimes I astound myself! Really. May be shock is the word. Dunno what it exactly is but I do things that I would normally think very unlikely me. Like make an ice cream or rather enjoy something that has a word "cheesecake" in it! Let me explain - I am not a ice cream fan. I like it but I wont say I get all excited over an ice cream. It took me many months of practically living next door to coldstone to actually go and finally get some ice cream (for the novelty of it) and that too threw half of it away cos it was "too much".  What? Are you staring at me already? Wait for the next one.

I.Hate.Cheesecake. There - I said it and now you can give me all the dirty looks you want. (If you have come over here already, you would know I dont like chocolate either!). You hate me already dont you? Or you think I am miserable old goat who is too deep in life's misery to appreciate the good things about it. Oh well that's for people who actually know me to clarify it for you :) So coming back to my first line. I am sure now that it makes more sense to you. If you asked - "Then why in the hell did you make cheesecake icecream?", I am glad to know, that you were actually reading this passage. :). I tried it cos of the novelty. Just curious. ( I heard you say "Sheeeesh!". I know!). But I have to say this " I LIKED IT". Who knew when the two most unlikely things in my life got together, they did a good job ganging up to create something I like. Me and my husband actually had a whole cup each after dinner. ( Did I say he is also like me with respect to ice creams and cheesecake...and...err...chocolate? ) The tart homemade Raspberry sauce (just pureed fresh raspberries with little sugar, strained and served) on top of these made it delicious. How to make ice cream My friend G who LOVES cheesecake went totally bonkers over these. She in fact finished more than half the bowl herself and till today insists on blaming me for her 10 pounds gain (she had 8 of those way before I gave her these. But "Shhhhhhh", dont tell her I said that ;) ) I wanted to make this verbatim but I had only 2% milk on hand and did not want to go the shop. The rest are as the recipe asked for. This recipe makes about 5 cups (ten 1/2-cup servings)

As for mine, I let it churn for 20 minutes until it was all thick. See the thickness? But it was still creamy and soft (as already specified by the booklet).

As suggested by the book, for a more firm consistency, I transferred this mixture into an air tight container

and then placed it in the freezer overnight with the lid tightly sealed in. Actually even 2 hours should do it, but it was already late in the evening, hence I kept it overnight.

The next morning, yummy creamy cheesecake Icecream all ready. Remove it from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving (although mine was perfect for scooping right out of the freezer).

What was left was to pour in some homemade raspberry sauce on top of it along with some fresh berries for garnish. I kept the sauce on the tart side so that we could actually enjoy the cheesecake! How to make ice cream

    I have a electric old fashion ice cream freezer. Will this work in it? Can I double or triple my maker makes 1 Gallon of ice cream?

    I left a review on ChefInYou after making this! I tweaked it because I didn’t have marscapone, but I’m sure my results were very much the same that they should have been. I did try to add blackberry jam while it was in the machine, but without being able to truly taste it I was worried about burying the cheesecake flavor. Three tablespoons wasn’t enough, but my cheesecake ice cream is a lovely pale purple color! Will definitely use your recipe again for a base, and will try to add more blackberry jam! Thanks for an awesome, easy recipe. :D

  5. YUM..this looks good!!I’ll join the club of Cheesecake-dislikers but Ice-cream,I can have it 24/7 365 days and still not get tired of it.If only I had that luxury!!

  7. Those were my initial days in america when I thought I can eat cheesecake endlessly, DH brought it on my first bday celebrated on this soil…eiikkkkss After 2 bites… I disliked it…stored in the refrigerator for almost 2 months, then dashed in the freezer for another year…. and after 2 whole years of storage trashed it, since then I never indulged in attempting cheesecake again (its been 4 yrs now) but your recipe looks appealing, only thing is I don’t have icecream maker :-| :-| …. any solution???

    I have written a note about it in my post Padma. In the ingredient section. Pls refer :)

    I just can’t digest the fact that you could hate all those yummy things and go on to make such an utterly delicious looking cheese cake icecream.:) Oh and what can we use instead of what is it ya Mascarpone. I don’t think you get them in India.

  13. I have not even tasted cheese cakes but I imagine myself how cheese would be tasting in a cake or desserts?? Same goes with lemony desserts… Ice cream sounds totally unique,wish I could taste :)
