Strawberry cream cheese ice cream (Kem pho mai dâu) 


1 lb fresh strawberries, trimmed and quartered
½ cup sugar (or to taste)

3 egg yolks
½  cup (100 g) sugar
2½ cups (600 ml) whole milk
½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream
1 lb cream cheese (soften at room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
a pinch of salt (optional)
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1½ tablespoons lemon juice


Preparing the strawberries:
Place berries in a bowl, add sugar and mash until crushed. Then cover and put it in the fridge overnight.

Making the custard: 
In a heavy saucepan, heat the milk until it simmers. 
Beat the egg yolks with ½ cup sugar until light. Whisk a small amount of hot milk into the eggs mixture; return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 175°F (79℃). Don't allow the mixture to boil. Transfer into a bowl, let it cool to room temperature then cover and refrigerate overnight. 

The next day, preparing the cream cheese:
Beat the softened cream cheese with ½ cup sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice until smooth. 
Strain the chilled custard and add in the cream cheese mixture. Mix well. 
Mix with the strawberry and freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. 

Then serve right away as soft serve, or store in a freezer-safe container and place in freezer for a few more hours if you want a firmer texture.

If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a plastic or other shallow freezer proof container, freeze for 6~8 hours. Take it out every 2 hours or so, beating with a fork, electric beater or in a food processor to break up the crystals. It’s finished once there are no more chunks of ice remaining. The texture won't be as creamy and smooth but it still works.

  3. Portable ice makers are a dream come for people who love ice and chew it throughout the day. Groups of people have even become obsessed with chewing ice as fast food chains have turned the ice cube into a crunchy snack that ice lovers chew for a variety of reasons! Chewing ice has been said to relieve tension, assist with weight loss, and bring cool relief for people who dislike the heat more than others. Jerry
