INSTANT STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE ICE CREAM



It is hot and humid where we live, so you can see this ice cream was quickly getting softer while I was taking photos.  Freshly made, you can put it in the freezer if you feel it should be firmer, or you could add another couple of frozen strawberries and process.





INSTANT STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE ICE CREAM

Only 3 simple ingredients to make this strawberry ice cream in a jiffy!  It is delicious and no ice cream maker required.  I made this one day when I was craving ice cream.  My ice cream maker is broken (to be fair I had it for many years), so you know how the story goes, “Necessity is the Mother of Invention!”  I can't emphasize enough - you're going to love this ice cream!


8 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
  (not softened – straight from the refrigerator)
24 oz frozen strawberries (680 g)
  (unsweetened)
Liquid sweetener to equal 11/cups sugar (300 mL)

  OR use your own favorite sweetener, to taste!

In food processor, process cream cheese (break up into bits first) until smooth.  Slice the frozen strawberries (nuke briefly – maybe 30 seconds) with a knife into smaller pieces.  Place on top of the cream cheese and process along with the sweetener.  Serve immediately for soft serve or freeze for an hour for firmer, scoopable ice cream.


Another way to make this:  Process the frozen strawberries first until broken up into little bits and then add the cream cheese and sweetener....this is probably the easier route.  Cut up the cream cheese into bits.  With this method, you may need a bit of cream to get it to the point where it is smooth and well-combined.  However, the upside is that the ice cream is cold and ready to eat right away, or you can freeze it for two or three hours before serving.  It should still be scoopable.  If not, nuke it briefly.

Helpful Hints:  If the strawberries are frozen solid, stuck to one another and covered in ice, nuke about 40 seconds.  Then rinse under running cold water in a colander to remove ice.  Pat dry with paper towels.

This cookbook below is a collaborative effort between low-carbing friends and thus the name, "Low-Carbing Among Friends".  Those were giddy days as we were a big fish in a small pond and now it is just the other way around. Nowadays we are competing against thousands of low-carb cookbooks and many Kindle cookbooks are being given away for free.  However, I believe in our cookbooks and I love using them myself, and I hope others, too, will still get to enjoy them for many years to come!  This is a beautiful collection of cookbooks, but I think the Anniversary Edition is the last cookbook I will write.  All good things come to an end, as they say.  It has been a fun ride and I have loved serving the low-carb community in this way.  I will still continue with my blog and Facebook for a number of years into the future.  I hope you will join us on this continued journey.  It is my preferred way of eating, even although I can have occasional splurges in maintenance, I still return to low-carbing and usually have between 50 and 100 grams of a carbs a day.

This is a very large cookbook with 226 pages.  If you even buy 1 cookbook, I would recommend one like this because you have a huge variety to choose from and from different authors as well.  The book has been through 3 Editions (revisions).  The recipes are sorted by category with each author contributing recipes.  The recipes range from very low-carb (below 5 grams of carbs) to below 10 grams of carbs per serving. and it is safe to say most recipes are below 5 grams of carbs per serving.  The recipes are also all gluten-free.

Many glossy color pages of photos (of which the greatest number of photos are in the Anniversary Edition; volume 11) are in the center of the cookbooks to inspire you to cook or bake something delicious for your family.
