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
