Homemade strawberry cheesecake ice cream with bits of honey graham cracker and fresh strawberries, each bite is heavenly!


  • cup Half & Half (See Notes)
  • ¾ cup heavy (whipping) cream
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 6 strawberries (for puree) (6 strawberries yield ¾ cup puree)
  • 4 strawberries (for chunks) (4 strawberries yield ½ cup chopped)
  • 4 honey graham crackers (crushed into small bits)
  • tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a small saucepan bring the half-and-half and heavy whipping cream to a scalding point on medium low heat. “Scalding” means gently heating without allowing to reach boiling point. Immediately remove from heat.

  3. Once the egg yolks mixture is done, gradually pour and mix the scalding half-and-half & heavy whipping cream mixture in batches. Keep whisking constantly to avoid the eggs from curdling.

  4. Now place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, keep stirring continuously with a spoon until it starts to thicken up. Once the consistency is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon, the custard is ready. Immediately remove the bowl from the heat and stir it for few minutes to help it to cool down a bit.
