Delicious banana & strawberry ice cream made with a little cream cheese for a smooth creamy cheesecake flavor!
It snowed yesterday. I’m not gunna lie… I am so over the snow and cold and winter. It just needs to be warm already. This Michigan-born, Florida-raised girl is not built for this kind of weather.
It wouldn’t really be that bad, I hope, if it was actually sunny during the winter instead of grey and gloomy and overcast all day, every day.
So then, what am I doing posting another ice cream recipe and it’s still almost the middle of winter?
Well… see, I love ice cream. I don’t care what time of year it is. It’s always time for ice cream.
Plus, yesterday was my birthday and I can do whatever I want during birthday week.
And when ice cream is this easy to make and you have a stockpile of frozen bananas in the freezer, you make ice cream when the craving hits. Like in the middle of winter.
Do you keep a stockpile of bananas? I always freeze the ones that my kids don’t eat and always, always used to make banana bread out of them but lately I have seen this banana ice cream all over Pinterest and the web.
So I’ve been doing a few experiments and have been trying my hand at a few banana base ice creams. I love experimenting with new flavors and combinations and this strawberry cheesecake ice cream was born.
It’s also probably one of the healthiest ice creams that you will make because it doesn’t contain have cream or lots of sugar to make it taste amazing. Just a couple simple ingredients added to a food processor and walla… instant ice cream.
Bonus that my kids love this type of ice cream and they don’t even realize that it’s “healthy” for you or it’s made with bananas. And they eat it with just as much gusto as regular ice cream.
Actually, I eat it with just as mush gusto as regular ice cream. haha
