Strawberries + Angel Food Ice Cream

Strawberries and cream ice creamWith summer starting to feel like it's just around the corner I'm feeling the need to break out my ice cream maker more. I love keeping a small batch of homemade ice cream in my freezer in case of unexpected guests. Offering a friend a homemade dessert is the best feeling. It almost feels like a humble brag. 🙂 Strawberry and angel food cake ice creamI love experimenting with all sorts of flavors. This recipe combines fresh strawberries with fluffy angel food cake and creamy cream cheese. If you've never tried making a cream cheese ice cream before, I highly recommend it. Not only are they deliciously decadent, they are also super easy to make! Strawberry ice cream ingredientsStrawberries + Angel Food Ice Cream, makes 3/4 quart (you can easily double this recipe).

8 oz. softened cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup cubed angel food cake 

In a mixer cream together the cream cheese and sugar until well combined. Stir in the milk, salt and heavy whipping cream. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight (most ice cream makers work better if the batter is very chilled before adding it). Pour into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer directions for use. I added in the strawberries and angel food cake just a few minutes before the ice cream was done. How to store homemade ice creamIce cream straight out of my ice cream maker tends to be the consistency of soft serve. If you like soft serve ice cream, great! If you want a more firm texture pop it in the freezer (in an air tight container) overnight. Angel food cake ice creamYou could serve this atop another slice of angel food cake. Angel food cake overkill? I think not. Easy homemade ice creamOr you could serve them in a waffle cone. Whatever your preference, you're gonna love this ice cream. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • This looks awesome but I have no idea how you would cube angel food cake! I tried to slice one yesterday and it was very difficult. Looks good though!

  • If you don’t mind me asking, what kind of ice cream maker do you have?

  • This looks like it’d be an absolute dream on a warm spring day at a cute little picnic or something!

  • Ok… I’m officially adding an ice cream maker to my birthday wish list!

  • This looks delicious and so easy! Also, it would be super easy to customize. I can’t wait for summer and homemade ice cream!

  • carolyn montervino- There are a couple of ways to make ice cream without an ice cream maker. Have you ever tried the coffee can method? We have a tutorial in our archives, but I’m sure there are other good resources online, just google coffee can ice cream. 🙂 If you are very interested in making ice cream though I highly recommend getting an ice cream maker. There are many different brands and price ranges. Good luck!

  • Yum! Got to love strawberry and cake! I don’t have an icecream maker, does anyone know if this can just be done in the freezer?

  • This looks so crazy delicious. Angel food ice cream?! Yuuussss!

  • Hi!

    I Love the idea!!


  • This looks so good! We rent at the moment and the freezer in our new house doesn’t fit our ice cream maker bowl – Sad times! I’m planning on gatecrashing a friends freezer because I need home made ice cream in my life!

  • Angel food cake is my favorite! Combining it with strawberries in ice cream form is pretty much perfect. Yummy!

  • This looks so good! It seams like a recipe Jeni’s ice cream would come up with. Have you ever seen her cookbook? It’s called Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, and it’s amazing! I think it’d be right up your alley.

  • Yum! Do you make your own angel food cake for this and have a recipe to share? It could be delicious with devil’s food cake, too…

  • I am passing this onto a friend who just got an ice cream maker. She’ll love it!

    xo Jennifer

  • YUM! Even if I don’t add the strawberries and angel food cake, I’m definitely going to try making cream cheese ice cream! Sounds amazing!

  • That looks so fricken goooood!

  • YES! I can’t wait to try this when mine comes in the post.

    xo Lisa

  • Oh my goodness! Yes please. As a child my requested birthday cake was ALWAYS Angel Food with Strawberry Whipped Cream. So this is my kind of ice-cream indeed. Must get an ice-cream maker.

  • Looks amazing. I’d just have to take 10 lactose intolerance pills hahaha….if anyone is good at translating recipes into dairy free versions please post it here! 🙂

  • Your recipes kill me seriously…

  • I can’t wait to break out my own ice cream maker this summer. This one is definitely on the list!

  • Love this idea, thank you. I can’t wait for summer and the amazing produce it brings. I am pretty sure I could live on strawberries and tomatoes for the rest of my life.

  • WOW this looks so decadent!!


  • Oh wow! This looks amazing! Perfect for spring and summer.


  • This looks so delicious!! Gotta go the waffle cone route when I try this!

  • That looks so yummy!!! Gonna have to try it sometimes soon!

  • OMGosh! Nom nom nom..def making this! Love this blog..keep it up ladies! Inspiring!

  • Can summer just be here already? We have a winter snow storm warning in effect (in Canada of course), and I am NOT looking forward to it. However, this ice cream looks and sounds quite delicious and fancy! 🙂


  • I love ice cream. Whenever I’m allowed to select my own toppings, I always go for strawberries and some kind of cake (pound cake is usually the only option, but angel food is sooo much better), so this is PERFECTION to me.

  • Well this is simply genius. You’d think that with all of the ice cream flavors I’ve consumed in my life (and there have been many), I would have at least seen this one, but I have not. Love the idea though, can’t wait to give it a go!

  • This looks so delicious! I don’t generally find angel food cake here in England but I guess I’d just have to make my own 🙂
