I’ve always loved cheesecake but I never realized how much until I made this gelato. It’s amazing, I can’t stop eating it, I have to stop making it! I’ve been working on several cheesecake frozen desserts lately and so far I’ve come up with recipes for Cheesecake Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt and Gelato and I think my favorite is the gelato.
Like other gelato I have made, I replaced heavy cream with half and half and added cream cheese. It contains lemon zest which is added to the milk before heating and then strained. I love the flavor from the zest which is very subtle but noticeable. The cream cheese gives it a sublime texture and just the right amount of cheesecake flavor. If you love cheesecake you really must try this recipe and let me know what you think.
