The strawberries are finally ripe in our garden! I wait all year long for these couple of weeks, and then it’s strawberries for every meal of the day! Today we’re combining two of my favorite desserts – cheesecake and strawberries. In these hot days of summer, ice cream seems to be just the thing I’m craving. Cheesecake ice cream gives you the best of both worlds: the cheesecake flavor without having to turn on the oven!

Berries fresh from the garden, are one of the most elemental pleasures in the world of food. Perfectly sun warmed, sweet, and juicy: there’s nothing quite like them.

I like nothing better than to sit down with a big bowlful, and eat until I can’t eat anymore (repeat day after day until strawberry season is over)!

First, wash and hull the strawberries for the ice cream base.

Place all of the ingredients for the ice cream in the blender and blend until smooth. If your honey is crystalized, melt it over low heat until it’s liquid again. After blending, place the ice cream base in the refrigerator to chill. This can take a couple of hours, depending on the temperature of your ingredients to start with. My strawberries were at room temperature, so it took about 3 hours to chill.

If you have an abundance of strawberries, slice some extras to go on top of the ice cream.

      Half and Half can go by some other names, and it can be confusing. The easiest way to purchase the right product is by the fat percentage, half and half is between 10% – 12%. I hope you enjoy the ice cream!

    Mmmm! Ben & Jerry’s strawberry cheesecake ice cream is my favorite! I’m excited to see your recipe without the gluten and sugar (and other stuff!) and want to try it soon. And your garden-fresh strawberries are beautifu!l I bet they taste better than those in the plastic cartons in the grocery, too!

      We’re so lucky to have garden strawberries, they’re so much sweeter than the store variety. In fact, that reminds me to make a note on the recipe.
