Healthy Cheesecake Ice Cream
This Healthy Cheesecake Ice Cream has got all the flavor of Cheesecake but in the form of Ice Cream.
No white sugar added, no butter in sight, and no stovetop cooking required (so no need to whip out the eggs and candy thermometer)!
One big spoonful of this decadent “cheesecakey” ice cream and you’ll be hooked. Don’t worry though, this ice cream isn’t a calorie-bomb stuffed with unhealthy ingredients (even though it tastes like it). You’d never know it’s sugar free, low carb, high protein, and keto-friendly too. Shhhh 😉

Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment).
In a blender, add all of the ingredients. Blend until completely smooth.
Place the frozen ice cream maker attachment onto the stand mixer and turn on the "stir" speed. Pour ice cream mixture into the ice cream bowl and churn until soft-serve consistency.
Transfer the ice cream into a freezer-safe dish. Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (~3-5 hours). Serve and enjoy!
As a comparison, here is the nutrition label for Food Network’s Cheesecake Ice Cream recipe.
I made the nutrition labels for 1 cup of ice cream because, really now, everyone eats way more than the “standard serving size” of a ½ cup. I think this is way more accurate.
I was obviously expecting a higher calorie count for the increased serving size, but my recipe’s nutrition label totally shocked me… in a good way. 1 cup of my ice cream has only 210 calories (!!!) and 8g of naturally occurring sugars (no sugar is added). Plus, it has 8g carbs, 16g of complete proteins and purely healthy fats (no hydrogenated oils and trans fats).
*jaw drops to floor*
A 100% healthy, guilt-free ice cream in my book! Especially when it’s compared to the typical, unhealthy Cheesecake Ice Cream with a whopping 720 calories, 48g fat, 33g saturated fat and 51g of sugar (that’s more than ¼ cup of white sugar in one sitting).
This healthy Cheesecake Ice Cream ice cream tastes like pure sin, yet it’s completely sinless.
Nothing about this creamy dreamy decadence tastes good for you at all!
With love and good eats,
