A strawberry ice cream recipe that tastes like cheesecake, too? Yes, that's exactly what this homemade ice cream recipe delivers! Top each scoop of Strawberry and Cream Cheese Ice Cream with sliced almonds for a satisfying salty, crunchy finish.
Place berries in a medium bowl; mash with potato masher until crushed. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium to high speed until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of the milk, and beat just until combined. Add mashed berries, remaining milk, whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, almond extract, and, if desired, red food coloring; beat just until combined.
Freeze in a 2-, 3-, or 4-quart ice cream freezer according to the manufacturer's directions. Sprinkle with almonds before serving. Makes 1 quart (8 servings).
