Low-fat Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream {no ice cream maker needed}

strawberry cheesecake ice cream

My favorite dessert just came in a frozen state for summer. It’s stawberry cheesecake on a spoon and my mouth is savoring every cool bite in this humid weather. I hope you have the chance to try a low-fat version with or without an ice cream maker. The machine just speeds up the freezing process a bit, but it’s totally worth the overnight wait if you don’t have a machine. Surpise your guests at your next cook out, pot luck or luncheon on the patio. They’ll never believe you hand dipped this deliciousness from your own homemade ice cream bucket.

Low fat Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream


  • 1-1/2 cups fresh stawberries, blended until smooth
  • 1-8oz. pkg. low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 3 graham crackers, coarsely crushed


  1. Blend berries in a blender until smooth.
  2. Add berries and the remaining ingredients, except graham crackers in a large mixing bowl. Using a whisk attachment, mix until well blended and creamy.
  3. *Pour cream cheese mixture into ice cream maker with berries. Run 30 minutes until semi-soft and fold in grahams last.
  4. Freeze overnight or until the desired firmness and texture is achieved.
  5. Remove ice cream 15 minutes prior to serving. Let stand at room temperature before dipping.
  6. *The ice cream maker step can be omitted and all the ingredients can be frozen in a large container for 8 or more hours.

You’ll know why I had to adapt this philly recipe into a low-fat version after you taste it. You just might be making it every week this summer:)

What’s your favorite homemade ice cream so far? Low-fat peach or basic real vanilla?

      We made this without the graham crackers because my kids are picky about ice cream – they don’t like chunks in theirs. Anyway, it was fantastic! Thank you so much! I hope you keep posting ice cream recipes, I love them!

    Hi I’ve tried to copy the recipes to ziplist but all the ‘save recipe’ icon copies is a Low Fat Strawberry jam. Is there a way to get the recipes to work?
