Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Ingredients

You just need six ingredients in total to make the best blueberry ice cream recipe. Heavy cream, whole milk and cream cheese ensure a creamy consistency. Sugar adds sweetness, blueberries add a tangy fruitiness and egg yolks add richness. I used fresh blueberries but frozen blueberries would also work.

How to Make Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

When cheesecake and ice cream come together, amazing things happen! This dessert made with fresh blueberries and cream cheese is well worth making. The first thing to do is whisk the sugar and egg yolks together. Bring the cream and milk to a boil then add some of the egg yolk mixture at a time.

When the mixture is thick you can blend in the cream cheese. Let the mixture cool until it’s room temperature then refrigerate it for an hour. When it’s really cold you can put it in your ice cream maker and process for about half an hour. It’s ready when it’s about twice the size and soft serve in texture.

Now just mash the blueberries a bit and stir them into the ice cream mixture. Finally freeze the ice cream until it’s set.

How to Choose an Ice Cream Machine

I love my kitchen gadgets and find that I use them often. Although I use the ice cream machine perhaps less than the air fryer or microwave, I do love it. Sometimes I prefer to make no churn ice cream and don’t need the machine. For this blueberry cheesecake ice cream though, I do use it since it is a churned ice cream recipe.

An ice cream machine churns your ice cream ingredients to get the flavour and texture perfect and creamy. The machine has a bowl or container with a paddle attachment and chilled walls. The churning puts air into the ice cream mixture to make it as light and creamy as possible.

3 Types of Ice Cream Machines

Ice cream machines come in different shapes and sizes and with different price tags! There are 3 types of ice cream maker to choose from. A rock salt machine uses a combination of salt and water to chill the ice cream. The temperature drops as the machine churns the ice cream.

Next up is the freezer bowl type machine which has liquid between both layers of the bowl. You need to chill the bowl for a whole day and night before using it to make ice cream. The paddle attachment will then churn your ice cream to perfection.

Another option is the compressor type. These ice cream machines are the most expensive but they do save you time and effort. The ingredients for the ice cream are brought to freezing point right away and there isn’t any waiting time between batches.

If you plan to occasionally make a blueberry ice cream recipe or similar, I’d recommend the rock salt type. Another idea is the freezer bowl, which is halfway between the rock salt kind and compressor kind in terms of cost. I use mine occasionally but nowhere near every day. Make sure you follow the ice cream machine’s instructions!

I also like to make no churn ice creams sometimes too, which don’t require a machine at all. Once you taste how good this homemade ice cream is, you will definitely want to make more! There are so many tasty homemade ice cream recipes to try.

How to Serve Blueberry Ice Cream

This is perfect however you choose to serve this creamy ice cream. Go a little extra and serve with blueberry sauce on top! You might prefer homemade cheesecake ice cream in a cone or in a bowl. You could even blend it with milk to make a milkshake.

Homemade Ice Cream FAQs

How long can you keep homemade ice cream?

In a freezer safe airtight container, ice cream made at home will keep for 1 month in the freezer. Place plastic wrap directly on top of the the ice cream before you place the lid on to prevent ice crystals from forming.

Why does my ice cream get so hard in the freezer?

Once frozen, ice forms in the ice cream, but that is ok. If the ice cream is too hard to scoop right from the freezer, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes, or even microwave it for just a few seconds being careful not to melt it.
