Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Strawberry season for the most part is over but I couldn’t let the summer go by without sharing one of my favorite ice cream flavors.

Cheesecake in ice cream form! The stuff summer dreams are made of.

Ruby-red strawberries dominate every bite along with the richness of tangy cream cheese mixed with chewy bites of graham crackers. Sheer decadence.

So go out and raid your strawberry patch! Or your neighbor’s.

Just don’t tell them I sent you.

If you do get caught – present them with a peace offering.

A scoop of pretty pink ice cream. All will be forgiven.
