Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
Makes 2 1/2 quarts of ice cream
*Note* This recipe requires the use of an ice cream machine
8 oz of cream cheese (I used Philadelphia)
2 cups of whole milk
3 cups of heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
6 cups of Wyman’s of Maine fresh, thawed blueberries
*Ice cream rock salt and crushed ice for use in the ice cream machine
Crack open the eggs; carefully draining the egg whites leaving only the yolks, set aside
Whisk the sugar and egg yolks together in a bowl
Add the whole milk and heavy whipping cream to a pot to boil; remove from heat and slowly mix in your sugar/yolk blend
Pour back into the pot and remain cooking on low heat until the mixture has gotten to a thick texture and can cover your spoon
Remove from heat and mix in your cream cheese until melted
Let it cool to room temperature and place in fridge until cold
Add mixture to an ice cream maker
Process in an ice cream maker per the directions of the machine; typically 20-40 minutes. Periodically add your rock salt and crushed ice to freeze the ice cream machine until it has reached a soft-serve state and doubled in size
Remove ice cream from the machine and add in your Wyman’s of Maine blueberries by mashing them into the ice cream mix
Re-freeze for about 2 hours before eating
Eat and enjoy! You can add this ice cream to top pies, ice cream cones or just eat by itself it’s a delicious treat and a great way to get your daily serving of fruits!
