I am so upset with myself. It has taken me until August to make one of my all-time favorite summer desserts: Strawberry Ice Cream Cheesecake. It’s so good. It’s so refreshing. And it’s so easy. Just because it has cheesecake in the name, don’t go thinking you will be slaving in the kitchen. In fact, this is a no-bake dessert that you can throw together in a matter of minutes.
Whenever we are invited to a get together, I don’t like to show up empty handed. During the summer, I bring cut up watermelon, ice pops for the kids, or a fun new dessert I’ve been dying to try out. For those last minute get togethers, I have to rely on a tried and tested dessert. My strawberry ice cream cheesecake has always been a crowd favorite and I really look for any excuse to make it.
So how can you go about making your own Strawberry Ice Cream Cheesecake?
Strawberry Ice Cream Cheesecake
You will need a gallon of strawberry ice cream, a frozen cheesecake, and crushed graham crackers. I grabbed some Blue Bunny Strawberry Ice Cream on my last trip to Walmart. You will also need a springform pan to assemble your cheesecake in.
Start by taking your ice cream and cheesecake out of the freezer. You want them both to thaw a little so they are easier to mix together. While they are thawing, make your graham cracker crust. Following the directions on the box, combine your crushed graham crackers and melted butter.
Once your mixture is crumbly, pour into the bottom of your springform pan. Using your fingers, press down until you have a firm crust.
Next, dump your thawed ice cream into a large bowl. You don’t want it to be too melted. Just enough that you can mix it.
Once your ice cream is in the bowl, chunk up your cheesecake and fold into the ice cream. Be careful not to over-mix! You don’t want the cheesecake to break up in the ice cream. You want nice big chunks of cheesecake.
Once you have the cheesecake folded into the ice cream, pour into your pan and smooth the top.
Place in the freezer until frozen solid. You can make this the night before your summer party!
