Reviews for Contest-Winning Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
"A great and light frozen treat for the summer! I substituted fresh strawberries, sweetened with sugar for the frozen sweetened ones. This would be great spooned into a graham crust too! My family loved it! Will definitely make again.....maybe with peaches next time!"
"I just have a question. I was wondering if Greek yogurt or vanilla yogurt would work as a replacement for the Cool Whipped topping? I'm trying to eat healthier and this recipe is perfect as is but may be healthier if I used yogurt. Any thoughts?"
"Just perfect!!!Lovely creamy texture, everybody liked it.Next time I will try the recipe with blueberries."
"Very good recipe. The ingredients call for refrigerated nondairy creamer so I used liquid. I agree that we don't need to go on and on about the recipe if we don't approve. We all know which foods we shouldn't live on. Desserts eaten now and then won't kill us, in my opinion."
"Round of applause to coppertop from me! Desserts are a treat and whilst it's nice to discuss ways of changing them for people who are diabetic etc it's unfair to flame if this isn't your thing.I hate cottage cheese with a passion so wouldn't try a recipe with it in. If you feel the same about other ingredients, walk on by.Not all recipes are for everyone.Now for my comments on the actual recipe.YUMMMMY!The first time I made it I absolutely loved it and I'm making it again today at almost immediate repeat request as a birthday treat, however, this time I'm putting some broken up graham crackers in as well just to give it that extra little touch. I kind of like that in a cheesecake ice cream!!"
"OMGosh people!! You all act like you are eating this all day long every day of your life. It's a fraking dessert!! I've made it w/ low fat cream cheese, low fat non dairy creamer, low fat cool whip & it was delicious. BUT as w/ all things MODERATION IS KEY - stop complaining about ingredients if you clearly are not going to make the recipe, it's ANNOYING!!"
"Honest fat from cream cheese, cream, butter, etc. are GOOD for you. It's the fake fats and chemicals that aren't."
"I have a question. Is the refrigerated nondairy creamer a liquid or power?"
"I made this for a camping trip & shared w/others campers. One young fella in his 80's came by & said "the only thing wrong is..there just wasn't enough." I've made it 3 times since and EVERYONE loves it."
"This was so delicious and creamy. I do agree that it is much healthier by using reduced fat ingredients and splenda in place of sugar. My husband is diabetic, and it was wonderful for him to enjoy this guilt free treat. Thanks so much for posting!"
"dougjanie......you couldn't be more right! people just need to think alittle and come up with changes.ya don't have to make this word by word"
"In my opinion, MommaStob is correct about the use of nondairy creamer and frozen whipped topping. Just read the list of ingredients (artificial? chemicals?) on these products. Give me real whipping cream, etc - in moderation of course."
"Make sure that you beat or whip the softened cream cheese very well to avoid clumps and to make sure the rest of the ingredients can be blended in more smoothly! Very tasty though!!!"
"MommaStob......all you have to do is use the reduced or low fat version of the coffeemate and cool whip, turns out the same and a bit healthier! This is very good and cooling on a summer's day!"
"There's a simple way to make this recipe healthier.....use lowfat or fat free cream cheese, fat free creamer, and free cool whip. What's so hard about that??? There are usually ways to make things healthier, you just have to think about it a little and put some effort into it!!!"
"How can you give out recipes that use non-dairy coffee creamer and Cool Whip????? Those things are serious health hazards!!!"
"This is delicious and so easy to make. I give it 5 stars!"
