Instructions 

Blueberry Swirl Directions

  • Place all the ingredients into a saucepan. Heat on low until sugar melts and the blueberries begin releasing some juice.
  • Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil stirring constantly.
  • Boil until sauce thickens. The sauce should be very thick like blueberry pie filling.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and immediately pour into a bowl or container. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate until ready to use.

How to make Cheesecake Swirl

  • Beat the cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
  • Add the vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.
  • Beat on low until combined and beat until combined. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
  • Divide the cheesecake filling. Place ¾ cup filling in one bowl and the remaining cheesecake filling into another bowl.
  • Cover both bowls and refrigerate until ready to use.

Ice Cream Custard Base

  • In a large bowl whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until it turns a pale yellow. Set aside.
  • Pour the milk into a medium size sauce pot. Add the whisked egg yolks and sugar mixture to the pot and whisk until well combined.
  • Turn the heat on medium and whisk continuously for 4 - 8 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly and will coat the back of a spoon. Remove the pot from the hot burner.
  • Pour the custard base into a bowl and add the vanilla extract (I used my homemade vanilla extract) and whisk well. Cool slightly
  • Add the ¾ cup of cheesecake swirl filling to the bowl and whisk until combined with the custard base.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before churning. Overnight is best.

Combine To Make Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

  • Remove the ice cream custard base, remaining cheesecake filling and blueberry swirl filling from the refrigerator.
  • Churn the custard base following the manufacturer's directions in an ice cream maker (20-30 minutes).
  • When the ice cream base is done churning scoop half into a freezable container. I used a metal bread pan loaf.
  • Spread the remaining softened cheesecake swirl filling over the top of the ice cream in the container. Spread half the blueberry filling over the top of the cheesecake filling.
  • Spread the remaining churned ice cream evenly over the top of the other ingredients.
  • Repeat layering the remaining cheesecake swirl filling and blueberry swirl filling over the second layer of ice cream.
  • Using a butter knife swirl the ice cream causing the cheesecake and blueberry swirl fillings to create a swirl through out the cheesecake ice cream.
  • Cover and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  • Makes 1 ½ quarts of Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream.

Notes

  • How much ice cream?: This recipe makes about 1 ½ quarts of ice cream.
  • What size ice cream maker: You will need an ice cream make that is at least 1 ½ quart size.
  • What type of freezable ice cream container?: A plastic storage container or even a bread loaf pan works well as an ice cream container. Any freezable container will work.
