Can't decide whether to make a cheesecake or ice-cream? Why not try Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-cream? This recipe is a combination of these two very popular desserts and I can guarantee you won't miss Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-cream from Häagen-Dazs! Remember, although it's low in carbs, make sure you don't eat the whole thing in one go! :-)

You will need an ice-cream maker to make the ice-cream soft and creamy. I use this professional ice-cream maker from Cuisinart that has a built-in freezer. It's easy to use and makes excellent ice-cream. Depending on your budget, there are some cheaper ice-cream makers without built-in freezer.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the ice cream by making sure the cream is chilled and place together with the cream cheese in a large bowl. Add the sweeteners, lemon juice, vanilla bean, vanilla extract, arrowroot powder and combine well. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
    Note: Adding alcohol-based vanilla extract prevents it from getting too hard, while arrowroot powder helps with thickening. Both of them will help make the ice-cream nice and creamy. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream Also, Erythritol doesn't dissolve easily unless heated up. For a smoother texture you can blend it until powdered. Note: Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that naturally occurs in fruits, vegetables and fermented foods. It's very low in Net Carbs and has a slight cooling effect.
  2. Blend or mash the strawberries, add them to the bowl and mix well. Pour into the ice-cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's instructions.
    Note: mine took just about 45 minutes. This varies based on the make of your ice-cream maker from 45-90 minutes! Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the crust. Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  4. Add melted butter and combine well. If the mixture is too dry, add a tablespoon of water. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (not wax paper), place the dough on it and roll into 1/8-1/4 inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into small squares. Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for about 8-10 minutes until golden. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  6. When done, set aside and leave to cool down. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  7. Break the crust into the precut squares. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  8. When the ice-cream is done, transfer into a large container and fold in the squares of the crust. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours to allow the crust to soften and the ice cream to set. To store for later, place in small single-serving containers and keep in the freezer. Note: You may prefer to use small containers for better portion control. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream
  9. Ice cream straight from the freezer may be too hard but you know the trick. Microwave for 10-20 seconds or leave at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi ...this is really good. In the interest of keeping carb count low I want to avoid the crust sometimes. May I know the macros for icecream alone?
Also I'd  like  to use this base for other flavours too..like chocolate chips or caramel...In which case the macros would change too.So if I omit the strawberry would I need to add more cream? Would appreciate macros for for icecream with or w/o strawberry. Thanks

Hi Sonia, if you omit the crust, the carb count will go down by about 1 gram so the change is insignificant (per serving). For a detailed nutrition overview, you can adjust any recipe directly in our app (using the "copy" feature and then remove or add ingredients to your liking). I hope this helps!

I made this today and it turned out delicious! I only had one vanilla bean so for the crust I used some of my ground vanilla bean powder. The dough for the crust was delicious but I was afraid I had over baked it so I didn’t stir it into the ice cream. I ended up sprinkling the crust on top and added a dollop of whipped cream. I will definitely make this again. Thank you Martina!

Candy, thank you for your lovely feedback! Sprinkling it on top makes this even easier and the crust keeps crispy - I like that! 😊

I made the crust for the ice cream and it was great! Didn't get mushy at all after freezing. Have you tried the crust as a regular cheesecake crust? I.e. Not for ice cream. I'm curious how it would hold up

Hi Kacie, yes, this is exactly the crust I used to make a regular low-carb cheesecake a few days ago. I also reserved and crumbled some crust on top just about 10 minutes before removing it from the oven 😊

Can you please clarify what I am supposed to do with the vanilla bean?
Am I supposed to grind it up or blend it beforehand?

Of course! Have a look at my post here: Easy Vanilla Fat Bombs You will have to cut it lengthwise and scrape the seeds out. You'll only use the seeds.

So excited to try this!! I bet it's better than Ben and Jerry 😊

Thank you! It is! 😉

I want to use my own sweetener, but am having a hard time knowing how much to use. Could you tell me how much sugar you would be puttin in the ice cream and in the crust so I can convert it to my sweetner of choice?

Reply

If you want to use other sweeteners, here is what I suggest:
For the crust, I use 1/4 cup Erythritol plus 10-15 drops liquid stevia. Although Erythritol has about 0.7 of the sweetness of regular sugar, I'd use also just 1/4 cup of sugar, because stevia adds extra sweetness, too.
For the ice-cream, I'd use 2 tbsp sugar or more - depends on how sweet the strawberries are. If they are rather sour, use 1/4 cup of sugar.
Hope this helps 😊
