I can’t believe it, but this is my first frozen dessert of the summer! Last year I went a little overboard (is that even a thing?) with all kinds of ice cream desserts, and this year tin foil dinners seem to be in over-load mode.

Although, as much as I LOVE tin foil dinners, I’m always going to pick ice cream over dinner, so this dessert wins.

Recipe via chelseasmessyapron.comThis is seriously one of the crazy EASIEST ice cream desserts with stunning results (both in flavor an appearance). The crust is a simple buttery graham cracker crust, but if you’re in a pinch you can use the pre-made graham cracker crusts to make these even quicker.

And then the ice cream filling is only TWO ingredients. Strawberry ice cream + a pre-made frozen cheesecake. Since there are only 2 ingredients you are going to want a very high quality and flavorful strawberry ice cream since that is the main component of this pie.

The cheesecake gets chopped into small pieces and stirred in with the ice cream.

And then you just dump that ice cream + cheesecake into the graham cracker crust and freeze. Honestly, the whole waiting-for-the-freezer-to-do-its-job is the hardest part about this entire recipe.

Once everything is all nice and frozen solid, it’s all about the toppings which are of course easy as well! I just used spray whipped topping and then put together some very quick sugared strawberries.

This, is summer ice cream eating at its finest.

The Easiest Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Pie

5 from 2 votes
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 (9 inch) pie
Author Chelsea, adapted from The Food Network

Ingredients

  • 9-10 (~1 and 1/2 cups of crumbs) full honey graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons white sugar separated
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 gallon strawberry ice cream
  • 1 8-9 inches prepared cheesecake store-bought in the frozen desserts aisle

Optional Sugared Strawberries

  • 1 and 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 lemon 1 teaspoon lemon zest and 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Optional: spray whipped topping

Instructions

  • Prepare the graham cracker crust.
  • In a blender or food processor, place the graham crackers and process/blend until the crackers are all crumbs. Empty the crumbs into a medium sized bowl and stir in 1/4 cup white sugar.
  • Soften the butter and combine with the crumb and sugar mixture.
  • Press the crumbs into a springform pan. I use a 9-inch springform pan for this recipe. Mainly press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and then a little bit up the sides. Place the pan in the freezer while you make the filling for the pie.
  • Allow the ice cream to soften for about 5-10 minutes depending on the temperature of your kitchen. You don't want the ice cream to get too melty or it becomes icy when re-frozen.
  • Place in a large bowl.
  • Take the cheesecake and coarsely chop into large bite-sized pieces.
  • Mix the cheesecake pieces into the slightly softened ice cream.
  • Pour the mixture over your prepared graham cracker crust. Cover and put in the freezer to set at least 8 hours or until completely firm.
  • Take the strawberries and toss with the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, zest, and juice of a lemon. Let sit for 6-9 minutes.
  • Top the cheesecake with the sugared strawberries and the spray whipped topping on the edges if desired.
  • Enjoy immediately after topping with strawberries.
  • If you won't be enjoying this pie all at once, only top individual pieces with the sugared strawberries and spray whipped topping.
