Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 12 ounces sweetened condensed milk may adjust the amount slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar or as needed, optional

Instructions

  • Chill the mixing bowl and mixer blades in the refrigerator at least for about 15 minutes in advance to the making of ice cream.
  • Transfer the softened cream cheese to the chilled bowl and mix using a good quality electric mixer ( I used a hand mixer) for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the heavy cream and mix for another 1 minute until soft peaks begin to form.
  • Add the vanilla extract and also sweetened condensed milk to the bowl, mix well using a spoon and then beat for about 2 minutes until all the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is soft.
    If you prefer more sweetness, you may add a couple of spoons of powdered sugar (only if you want it more sweet) and beat for another one more minute until the sugar is well blended with the mixture.
  • Transfer the mixture to a freezer safe bowl and freeze for about 30 minutes (do not mix it if the mixture is already frozen, you can wait until the mixture is slightly melted so you can whip it easily).
  • After 30 minutes, while the mixture is still not frozen, beat the mixture for about 1 to 2 minutes which will make the ice cream more creamy and you will get the perfect texture.
  • Transfer the mixture back to the freezer and freezer for another 4 to 6 hours or until the ice cream is set.

Notes

You can leave the ice cream in refrigerator for few minutes (about 10 minutes) prior to serving, which will make it soft enough so you can easily scoop it out.
If you love more cheesy texture and flavor, you may slightly increase the amount of cream used and add more powdered sugar for the desired sweetness. On the other side, if you prefer more light texture with a light cream cheese flavor, you can slightly increase the amount of heavy whipping cream and add little more powdered sugar to adjust the sweetness.
