Cheesecake Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce


My daughter’s palate is a bit of a mystery…she avoids the intensely chocolate desserts that the rest of the family craves; but one thing is certain: she loves her cheesecake.  So when I saw that Nigella had a cheesecake ice cream, I knew it would be my selection for Iced Dreams Forever Nigella this month.  I decided not to swirl the cookie crumbs into the softened ice cream…Katie also has textural issues due to her cerebral palsy. This fabulous frozen delight paired perfectly with a gorgeous strawberry sauce made from fresh, ripe berries. Sweet, smooth and tangy with the flavor of the finest cheesecake, I savored every cool bite with the berry sauce…and Katie enjoyed hers plain. Bill and I enjoyed our Cheesecake Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce…I’m sure you will, too.



You can find Nigella’s recipe here

Strawberry Sauce…adapted from
1 pound fresh strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cut half the strawberries in half or quarters.  Cook with sugar and vanilla over medium heat for about 5 minutes, till sugar melts and berries are soft.  Mash berries and allow to cool.

Slice the remaining berries and mix with the cooled mashed berries.  Serve over ice cream or cheesecake.

  1. If I could I would eat this right now for breakfast!

  2. Lizzy, love the strawberry hearts and the combination of cooked and raw strawberry.

  3. Don’t get me wrong, I like chocolate; but, I’m with your daughter, give me cheesecake! That’s something I never turn down! And your photographs are works of art here. Beautiful!

  4. Liz, you MUST try Debby’s /FoodieWife’s method for cheesecake ice cream w/ crust (although I see that Katie isn’t wild re crust)! It is SO good (I made a blueberry version). I’d love to know how it compares with Nigella’s:

    Again, your photos are beautifully styled.

  5. Anything that Nigella makes is always a winner. Your cheesecake ice cream with the strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries, are totally droolworthy, Lizzy. I like your new style of your photos, they are exquisite…but oh, that ice cream makes me drool!!!

  6. Nice choice, Lizzy! And, I love how your strawberries turned out like little hearts!

  7. Yum! Ice cream with strawberries taste really great.. And especially when it’s cheesecake ice cream.

  8. I’ll be checking out this group. Thank you for the link. This sounds and looks so delicious. I would love a bowl of this to enjoy outside while we soak up the sun. Yummy!

  9. Jill Colonna says:

    Oh my! Cheesecake ice cream? This is incredible and love the idea with these strawberries and sauce. Even your strobs are cute – one looks like a wee heart!

  10. This has to be a great tasting ice cream. It looks marvalous, Lizzy 🙂

  11. Oh my goodness Lizzy, now after reading the recipe I want it even more. I love cheesecake and lately ice-cream seems to be the meal of the day.
    Wish I have a big bowl right now!

    Great minds think alike? 🙂 I’m making Cheesecake Ice Cream for my Nigella Forever entry, too! I’m planning on doing the whole digestive biscuit thing (maybe I can even get my act together to make them myself?). I’m glad you liked it–now I need to go make mine before the deadline!

  20. Hand me a spoon. That’s a little bit of heaven in a bowl.

  21. Man, yet another reason to get an ice cream maker: combining two of my faves, berries and cheesecake. Nigella is such a winner when it comes to decadence…

  22. Wow that ice cream must be so rich and delicious! Anything cheesecake is bound to be amazing!

  23. What a fabulous summer dessert! Love how you cut the strawberries into hearts. <3

    I love cheesecake but don’t like the heaviness of this so it’s got to be a perfect way to have my cake and eat it too 🙂 Kate @kateiscooking – google never cooperates when I’m at the office so I’m anon yet again…

  41. Lauren at Keep It Sweet says:

    I can’t imagine not liking chocolate, but I certainly would like this, too!

  42. That’s a very nice way to serve strawberries!

  43. Bestfoodies says:

    With this awful heat this looks so appealing. I love cheesecake and strawberries so this is especially appealing. The way you display and plate all your dishes always catch my eye. I have to say you are one of my favorite blogs!

  44. Terri @ that's some good cookin' says:

    Hi, I’m new to your blog. Love it. I’m with Katie on the cream cheese vs. chocolate thing. (Recently developed an allergy to chocolate…how inconvenient is that?) Anyway, this look wonderful.

  45. Silmara Freitas says:

    Que delícia!
    Quero um.


  46. Love strawberries and cheesecake. Nothing better. This looks just divine. I would love a bowl right now.
