Equipment

  • Food processor or blender
  • Ice Cream Maker

Ingredients

Cheesecake Ice Cream

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Blueberry Compote

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  • Check your ice cream machine's instructions first. Mine required freezing the bowl 1 day ahead.
  • Prepare the berry compote: add blueberries, 3 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, water, and lemon juice to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to low. Cook, stirring often until blueberries are bursting and the compote thickens, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a shallow bowl and refrigerate until cooled.
  • Make the cheesecake ice cream: Combine cream cheese, whole milk, heavy cream, 1 cup granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt in a food processor. Pulse until well combined. Pour mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and churn according to the ice cream maker manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Once the ice cream is done churning, add half of the ice cream into a freezer-safe container. Add half of the compote on a layer and swirl using a knife. Then add the rest of the ice cream on top, and top with the remaining berry compote and swirl.
  • Freeze for about 2 hours before serving or overnight.
