How to Make No Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Tips

  • Make sure you use really cold heavy whipping cream. Store it at the back of your refrigerator for best results.
  • Put your mixing bowl in the fridge or freezer for a little bit before, as well. The colder your bowl and ingredients are, the more air will be trapped in your ice cream for a lighter, creamier finish.
  • Five full graham crackers equals about one cup of crushed. You can use as much or as little as you like – these help mimic the texture of cheesecake crust.
  • Your freezer’s coldest area is probably in the back. Store your ice cream there for a quicker freeze and to store.
