  5. Easy No Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Recipe

Cherry cheesecake was pretty much my favorite dessert growing up. 

My mom had a few go-to dessert recipes and her no-bake cherry cheesecake was one that I always enjoyed!

Whenever we would go out for ice cream, I always always got New York Cherry Cheesecake — it is still one of my favorites!

These days, I’ve expanded my list of favorites even more but I still come back to a big bowl of this no churn ice cream now and then πŸ˜‰

What is no churn ice cream?

Although no churn ice cream isn’t traditional ice cream, it is still a fun and cool summer treat.

The bonus? It’s easy to make and requires no ice cream maker!

Just two main ingredients (cream and sweetened condensed milk), and you can mix and match almost any add ins you want from there.

Then, it’s just a few hours in the freezer and it’s ready to enjoy.

How to make no churn ice cream:

  1. Whip up some cream: you want to incorporate air into this recipe so that your ice cream isn’t a frozen block of creamy! For this reason only heavy whipping cream will work.
  2. Fold in some sweetened condensed milk — the sugar keeps the ice cream from freezing completely solid, and obviously adds sweetness.
  3. Add in any mix ins you want! For this recipe we use cherry pie filling and crushed graham crackers.
  4. Freeze! In 4-6 hours you can have soft serve consistency, but I usually let it freeze overnight if possible.

Ingredients and variations:

  • Swap out the cream for lactose-free whipping cream for a homemade ice cream that is easier on sensitive tummies (you can do the same with the cream cheese)
  • Swap the cherry pie filling for blueberry, strawberry, any flavor you enjoy!
  • Swap the graham crackers for chocolate or Oreo cookie crumbs for black forest vibes

Easy No Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Smooth, creamy No Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream made with only 5 ingredients! Cherry Cheesecake ice cream was always one of my favorites growing up, and I think this homemade version is even better than the ice cream parlour! Mix up the pie filling flavor to easily customize.

Cuisine American
Course Dessert
Servings 12 servings
Calories 474cal

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese (250 grams)
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream 35%
  • ¾ cup cherry pie filling
  • 6-8 graham crackers

Instructions

  • With an electric or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • In another bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and set aside.
  • Add the graham crackers to a zip top bag and crush with a glass or another heavy object.
  • Place cherry pie filling into a small food processor or blender and process until smooth (this isn't completely necessary, but the whole cherries will turn icy as the ice cream freezes. I prefer a smooth swirl and no cherry ice cubes).
  • Swirl half of the cherry pie filling and the graham cracker crumbs into the cream mixture.
  • Pour half of your cream mixture into a 9×5" loaf pan. Drizzle with cherry pie filling and graham cracker crumbs and swirl. Pour remaining cream mixture on top. Drizzle with cherry pie filling and graham cracker crumbs and swirl again.
  • Freeze until desired firmness — about 6-8 hours minimum.

    Hi Ashley….I just made this ice cream and it’s in the freezer now.
    Question, the whip cream began to deflate but not entirely… and I did have plans for waffle cones, Will this be ok for cones? Will it be ok at all for ice cream? HelpπŸ€ͺlol!

  2. Sherry says

    This looks delicious! Could I use strawberry or blueberry filling instead? My son does not like cherries. Thank you!

      You definitely have to! I honestly didn’t think it was going to be THAT good when I first heard of it, but it sooooo is! It tastes like real ice cream, minus all of the work!

    Hi Stacey! I hadn’t made ice cream for a while because I misplaced my ice cream maker in the move to TN, but lately I’ve come across a number of no churn recipes that sound delicious and this is one of them! And who doesn’t like cheesecake! πŸ™‚

    Strawberry cheesecake ice cream was my absolute favorite growing up. Cherry cheesecake sounds amazing too!! I love that this is no-churn as well. Great post!

  5. marcie says

    This has to be one of the best no-churn ice cream flavors ever, Ashley! I love cherry cheesecake, and having it in frozen form is the best way to have it in the summer!
