So, if you can believe it, Walmart sells a strawberry cheesecake ice cream that's actually pretty damn good. This is my closest approximation of it. Before you turn your nose up at it, I've given out several samples of this and received nothing but good feedback. It's a very simple recipe, to be sure, but if you're looking for a creamy strawberry cheesecake this fits the bill quite nicely.
INW Biscuit does a nice job giving us the little crumbs of crust that are littered throughout the ice cream.
TPA Marshmallow, CAP NYCC, and TPA VBIC give a nice, sweet cheesecake ice cream without any sour notes and a thick, creamy mouthfeel.
FA Juicy Strawberry was my go-to here because it gives a sweet candy strawberry syrup flavor that stands up well by itself among the creams.
If you don't have Juicy Strawberry, you can probably get away with subbing a Strawberry Ripe/Sweet blend with emphasis on the sweet strawberry, but you'll lose some of the inherent juiciness that you get from FA. I don't think people who get pepper from TPA VBIC will be bothered too badly by it at 1% here, and I wouldn't recommend subbing CAP in because the slight spice that comes from TPA VBIC fills in the body that would be a little thin using NYCC alone at only 3%.
*Edit: I knew I had cribbed this cream base from somewhere, but couldn't remember where. I went back and looked, and I have to give credit to @Thadentman for his excellent work.
This is tied to the Watermelon homework assignment. I've been working on a version of this for a bit, and just got it like I wanted it. The homework timing was a happy convenience. This is not the traditional coconut-heavy snow cone tiger blood, I actually wanted the watermelon up front.
TPA Coconut: I used this instead of coconut extra because I wanted the watermelon to be the star of the show. This lends just enough coconut flavor to know it's there.
TPA Dragonfruit: Accents the strawberry and adds a touch of juiciness to the mix
TPA Strawberry: I didn't actually try any other strawberry flavors for this. My worry was that any other would either be too sweet, too strong, or too pink for this. I may do a version of this with Straw Ripe just to see what happens.
PUR Watermelon: This is the watermelon I've been looking for. Sweet and candylike without the qualities that annoy the hell out of me in TFA watermelon. I did a batch of this with CAP double watermelon as well and it was okay, but this tastes better and more well-rounded to me.
This is the first recipe of my own that I've deemed worth sharing. Was going for something different but what I ended up with reminds me of the blocks of chocolate fudge that you get at the candy shop. If you're a fan of rich chocolates, this should be pretty damn enjoyable. No idea how long this should steep to reach its final form, I've had it sitting for 3 days and find it delicious.
