lemon blueberry cheesecake ice cream
a sweet vanilla ice cream that's mixed with dried blueberries and lemon cheesecake pieces.

- lemon cheesecake pieces i used this recipe here from amy in the kitchen. just make a 1/4 of the recipe and bake it in a small casserole dish. you don't need the crust, just the cheesecake base. after it's baked, let cool and then cut into small little bite sized pieces.
place the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla into a pot and bring to a boil, whisking to make sure the sugar dissolves. place the ice cream base into the fridge overnight to cool and to let the flavor increase. following the manufacturer's instructions of your ice cream machine, turn the base for 20-25 minutes. fold in the freeze dried blueberries and the cheesecake pieces. place the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze overnight to firm up.
