Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream

I made an ice cream, ya'll! I am so excited because I've never actually made a “true” ice cream before today.

No, I take that back. I remember when I was a kid my grandpa had one of those big old ice cream makers that you had to churn by hand and add the ice and salt to make it cold enough to freeze the ice cream. We were at the cabin and grandpa got all the ingredients for the ice cream and added it to the big drum, put the ice and salt around it, and we all took turns churning the ice cream until it was ready to eat.

I don't remember it taking that long, but I'm sure it did and I'm sure that my grandpa probably did most of the work. But the ice cream that we made was probably some of the best I've ever had and, sadly, my grandpa took that recipe to the grave with him. Maybe grandma has it written down somewhere?

Anyway, for the walk down memory lane…

I was in HomeGoods a while back, my absolute favorite store by the way, and I saw they had an ice cream maker in the clearance section. Uh, yes! Score! Didn't even hesitate or think twice before scooping that bad boy up. But after I got home, I put it down in the basement with all the other appliances that don't fit in my small kitchen and there it has sat for about 3 months. Until today!

Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream

I finally got it out to make some red velvet cheesecake ice cream for Valentine's Day coming up and it turned out perfect. Cheesecake ice cream is the hubby's favorite so it seemed fitting, since he normally doesn't eat sweets but has devoured cheesecake ice cream in the past.

I whipped up a quick batch of cupcakes to add some red velvet chunks to the ice cream and couldn't be happier with the results. The hubbs, as expected, devoured a bowlful, along with the kids and my mom, who was in town visiting. So I'd say this was a winner.

  1. I am SO JEALOUS of that HomeGoods find. That is incredible. I honestly have to avoid HomeGoods because I walk out with way more stuff than can possibly fit in my tiny apartment!! 😉

  2. I’m one of those weird people who cares not for ice cream, but I absolutely love anything red velvet! Oh, and cheesecake! (I’d be stealing that cheesecake from your husband!) This ice cream would be something that I would want to eat for sure – it’s got other components that are completely necessary in my opinion. Ice cream on its own is just boring, but toss in chunks of your red velvet cupcakes and I’m in for sure!

    1. I’m kind of with you on that front. I need to be in the mood for ice cream, it’s not just something that I have to have all the time. And red velvet is fav!

  3. Beautiful ice cream, Jennifer! I hardly ever use my machine, and last year I got a frozen slushy maker that was on clearance. Clearance items are the best!
