You don’t have to make this swirl look, but it’s worth the little bit of effort to make it happen. If you decide to just mix the pureed strawberries into the cheesecake ice cream in the ice cream machine I won’t judge you for it! It will be pretty in pink!

This recipe was a winner with the whole family, picky kids and picky hubby who dislikes stevia! I used a combination ofSwerve which is erythritol and liquid berry stevia. He didn’t notice any aftertaste so even those of you who aren’t fans of stevia may like it as well! I’ve also added liquid Allulose when I updated this recipe because I’ve found it helps keep ice cream nice and soft. I’ve tried it in my Butter Pecan Ice Cream with great results.

Impress ALL you friends with this deliciousness, whether they are sugar free and low carb or not!

Brenda’s Notes:

    • You don’t need to use berry flavored stevia but it does enhance the strawberry flavor the best.
    • If you don’t have Swerve and use another sugar free substitute, most other brands are sweeter than Swerve so I would suggest eliminating the stevia.
    • Half & Half is half whole milk and half cream, equal parts.
