blueberry, cheesecake, Ice Cream


  • 2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • graham cracker crumbs, for serving (optional)


  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the sugar, cream cheese and egg yolks; beat at high speed until smooth.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the milk and half-and-half; bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • Gradually add the hot milk mixture to the cheese mixture, a spoonful at a time (being careful to temper the mixture and not ‘cook’ the egg), stirring constantly with a whisk until all has been incorporated. Return the milk mixture to the pan. Cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°, stirring constantly. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and place it on top of ice in another bowl. Cool completely, stirring occasionally.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, powdered sugar, and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and cool completely.
  • Stir the blueberry mixture into the milk mixture. Refrigerate several hours until mixture is very cold.
  • Pour the mixture into the freezer container of an ice-cream machine; process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Spoon the ice cream into a freezer-safe container; cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
  • Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top of individual servings to complete the cheesecake theme!
