Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

When you have a little extra time to make ice cream from scratch and the kids want to help out, this is your go-to recipe for that special treat. This rich and creamy ice cream is reminiscent of custard and tastes like a decadent strawberry cheesecake. Despite its sinfully delicious disguise, this ice cream is easy to pull together and looks beautiful presented on a cone or in a bowl. You could even spoon it into a graham cracker crust and freeze it to make an ice cream pie for a unique birthday cake or party dessert.

Strawberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt - perfect healthy sweet treats for summer! from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

When I was six years old, I thought ice cream was a magical thing only to be found in curved containers from the store or huge buckets at ice cream shops. I had no idea there was a difference between frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and ice cream – and I didn’t even know gelato existed. The only thing I knew or cared about was that ice cream was delicious and I wanted to eat as much of it as possible. Fortunately, my parents had similar views on ice cream, so we had it after dinner almost every night.

Fast forward to today, and I’ll tell you a very different story. I know a lot about ice cream, frozen yogurt and all those other frozen treats. I’ve learned how to make it, I own an ice cream maker and I am lucky enough to work with the test kitchen and sample new recipe ideas. (Tough life, right?)

What I’ve learned is I really love frozen yogurt, often more than ice cream, and this particular frozen yogurt is fantastic. Especially in the summer, the tangy brightness of “fro-yo” keeps me feeling refreshed and my sweet tooth feeling satisfied. Greek yogurt is thick and creamy as is, so adding sugar, strawberries, and the zest and juice of a lemon only makes it better. And that’s all the ingredients you need. It almost seems too simple, right? Don’t be fooled into thinking (as I was) that this awesome dessert can only be found in a market or a shop, when it’s as easy as a handful of fresh ingredients and an ice cream maker.

Food Focus: Strawberries

Strawberries are in season from June through August in most regions. Here in the Mid-Atlantic, we’ve been seeing them in farmers markets for about a month now. If you live in a climate like Southern California’s, you may see them much more often.

To select the best berries, look for bright red berries with the green caps still on. Avoid any container with moldy berries as the spores can spread and ruin an entire container, even if the berries aren’t actually physically touching the moldy spots. Use your strawberries as soon as possible, or store them in the refrigerator covered loosely with plastic wrap, as warm temperatures can change the color of fresh strawberries. You can store them for up to three days. Wash your strawberries only when you are ready to use them. To wash, rinse the berries in a colander under cold running water. Remove the green stem and caps with a paring knife before chopping, slicing or processing.

Strawberries are sweet and delicious, but they are also good for you! They have more vitamin C per ounce than citrus fruits, and a cup of strawberries is only 55 calories*. Kids and adults love the fruit; 94% of households in the United States consume strawberries*. Here are some of our favorite ways to use strawberries this summer. Enjoy!
