  • 1.5 quarts vanilla bean ice cream
  • 3/4 lb. fresh strawberries
  • 4 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 ounce cream cheese softened

Instructions

  • After you have rinsed and drained the strawberries, add them to a food processor with sugar and puree until smooth, you should have about 1 – 1 1/4 cup of fresh strawberry puree.
  • Using a large bowl and hand mixer or KitchenAid mixer, which is what I used add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add ice cream and Cool Whip and mix until combined. 
  • Add graham crackers crumbs and mix until all the crumbs are mixed in. 
  • Remove bowl from mixer and stir in ½ cup of the fresh strawberry puree into the ice cream. Add more if you would like, set the remaining puree in the fridge to serve as a topping.
  • Pour the ice cream into your serving bowl, cover and place in freezer for 2-3 hours until completely frozen. Then serve, enjoy and devour!
