Description

Extremely easy to make and gorgeous, this is the best summer frozen dessert ever! It's egg-free, no-churn and there's no need to make custard in the stove. You can use any berry you want and it's a great recipe to make with and for kids. Simply mix, fill the popsicle molds and freeze!

The specified time doesn't include freezing. 


Scale

Ingredients

For the berries:

  • 1 cup berries, fresh or frozen (I used blackberries)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • Or prepare the Basic Blueberry Sauce without the cornstarch, using any berry you want

For the cheesecake ice cream base:

  • 8 oz (225g) cream cheese, at room t°
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • Zest of ½ orange
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of sea salt

Instructions

For the berries:

  1. Put all berries, sugar and water in a saucepan and cook over low heat.
  2. Stir frequently until it boils. Reduce for a minute or two and remove from heat.
  3. Transfer to a shallow container, mash berries with a fork or spoon and refrigerate.
  4. If making this the same day you mix the ice cream base, then freeze it while making the base. It will be cold enough when you add it.

For the cheesecake ice cream base:

  1. In a bowl beat cream cheese, cream and sugar just until smooth. Don't overbeat.
  2. Add zest, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Take out the berries and combine them with the cheese mixture. It's important to do this lightly; we want pools of berries and a light marbling.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly among the popsicle molds (it fills 4-6 depending on the size) making sure you add the sticks.
  5. Freeze, covered by a plastic or a freezer separator sheets.
  6. Eat straight from the freezer.

Popsicle molds: besides them being made of silicone or plastic, there are some that come with the stick incorporated (like this xiaohuhu Fruit Silicone Ice Cream molds, or the Kootek Popsicle mold) and some that don't (like the Popsicle Molds Ouddy) so make sure they add the wooden sticks! Otherwise, you won't be able to remove them probably.
