If you’ve always wanted to make your own ice cream but have been skeptical because of the churning, special machines, bases, and Chopped ice cream machine fails (okay is that just me?! NEVER do an ice cream on Chopped…it’s common sense folks). Anyway, you don’t have to worry about any of that with this tasty strawberry cheesecake ice cream. It’s a no churn recipe!
What’s the difference between churned and no churn ice cream recipes?
So here’s the deal. Churning ice cream adds air bubbles into the mix which helps the recipe stabilize, freeze properly, and become creamy. It’s actually not necessary to do a whole lot of churning or for the recipe to churn the whole time it’s freezing.
When you use an ice cream machine to make ice cream it’s essentially moving the liquid around the whole time to infuse air into the mixture.
Turns out you can get plenty of air into the base mixture by using a stand mixer when preparing the ingredients. I’ll show you below how to make a no churn recipe for ice cream that is plenty creamy and delicious without all the chaos of special machines, shaking, mixing, and otherwise obsessing.
What will I need to make this delicious homemade ice cream?
My version of strawberry cheesecake ice cream uses heavy whipping cream, some sweetened condensed milk, strawberries (we use fresh ones), graham crackers, and cream cheese.
If you like to serve your ice cream in cones you will also need some of those! That’s all! Nothing tricky, nothing difficult to find and in terms of equipment you will need a mixing bowl, I just use the bowl attached to my stand mixer, and you’ll need a whisk, a spatula, and a mixer! Stuff you likely already have on hand, right?!

Kitchen essentials for making no churn ice cream:
When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes (like strawberry cheesecake ice cream) you’ll want to have the best tools on hand. We’ll be using a casserole style baking dish for this recipe and here are some of my other favorite kitchen tools for baking, making ice cream, and more!
I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.
How to make no churn strawberry cheesecake ice cream:
This recipe is really simple and easy to put together. If you’ve tried any of my other no churn homemade ice cream recipes like Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream, How To Make Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream, Delicious Homemade Apple Ice Cream, or Cotton Candy Ice Cream I’m sure you know it’s pretty straight-forward!
Let’s dive on in! Keep in mind that we used a 9 inch square baking pan to freeze the ice cream but you can use other sizes too. If you are doubling the recipe feel free to put it in a casserole style baking dish!
Place heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. This can also be done with a hand blender with whisk attachment but will take much longer. Blend for 4 minutes on low speed and adjust speed going up to 6 as it thickens. Once it resembles whipped topping then it’s ready.
Fold in the can of sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese. Tip for cream cheese. I just add pieces here and there. It doesn’t have to mix in; we are just looking to fold it in. Fold in strawberries. Then pour some into a 9 inch square pan.
Add graham cracker crumbles and push into the mixture all over in different places.
Once the ice cream and graham crackers are all in the pan. Place in the freeze for at least 6 hours but best if frozen overnight.
Scoop and serve!
