No-Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream

No-Machine Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream – no ice cream machine necessary! Chunks of graham cracker, cherry pie filling and creamy cheesecake!

NO MACHINE NEEDED ICE CREAM RECIPE

You read that right! You don’t even need a machine to make this delicious indulgence. I have an ice cream maker that I enjoy breaking out from time to time. I really love to make all of us a Homemade Frosty (only 2 ingredients!) but it’s also nice not to have to fuss with any of that!

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS HOMEMADE ICE CREAM:

  • The only thing this recipe really requires is  just a bit of patience while it sets up. But I promise, the wait is totally worth it. It comes out so creamy and smooth and the flavor is incredible. 
  • There are a lot of fun combinations with this recipe so have fun changing it up! Blueberry, strawberry or peach pie fillings would work great!
  • If your freezer tends to turn ice cream into hard blocks (like mine), then just sit it out on the counter for a few minutes and it won’t take long to soften to make it easier to scoop.

 Then stir in whipped topping.

When it comes to crushing the graham crackers, don’t pound them to smithereens. You want some chunky graham cracker bits in there.

 Gently stir in cherry pie filling and graham crackers.

You just want to very lightly stir it together because you want swirly bits of the cherry filling and graham crackers. Not a totally homogeneous mixture.

  Pour mixture into a large (2 pound) loaf pan.

  1. Thanks for recipe!! I am allergic to ingredients in Cool Whip so will be tryng it with my homemade whipped topping!

  2. 5 stars
    I made this for my husband – I am not a ice cream fan but he is. I just dished him up a bowlful and had a taste – I thought it was outstanding. He felt it was beyond outstanding! Thanks for such a great recipe that was so easy to make!

  3. 5 stars
    Made this and loved it! We loved it so much we’ve also made it with strawberry pie filling and blueberry pie filling. AMAZING!!

    Brandie,
    My first thought when you said your freezer makes it harden like bricks were ” ice cream sandwiches”. I suppose you could make the ice cream, and use the Graham crackers as dividers, then pull it out and waalaaa, or soften the Graham crackers in the fridge, while the ice cream is freezing. Omgosh. Yummy.

  5. Is there any way to make this for a sugar-free diabetic? My hubby would like it but it has to be sugar-free

    I love homemade ice creams that don't require a maker! YUM! I just love your blog and reading your recipes! This was perfect. Like others, I made exactly as written. Thank you!

    I'm so excited to make this but am wondering if it'll work equally well if I DO use my little ice cream maker? My freezers will turn this into a hard block and then, if I remove to soften, the edges will get smooshy and the interior will be a brick of unattainable deliciousness. So can I use my lil' ice cream maker instead?

    This was the absolute perfect treat! I don’t own an ice cream maker and you wouldn’t know that this wasn’t made with one. So good!!

    This is so yummy! I didn't leave it in long enough to freeze and it was still really good. I took it to a dinner party and had lots of requests for the recipe. I will make this again and again. Oh, BTW, I made blueberry instead of cherry and added extra graham crackers, because I love them.

    Delicious is all I can say!!! Made it this weekend and it is definitely a keeper. It does get rather hard in my freezer so I have to remember to take it out prior to serving. Thanks Brandie, you did it again.

  11. Ice cream is my favorite. I like eat home maiden ice cream. Because I like to try this recipe. I think that’s taste different.

    Oh Honey (and I'm not just talking Graham Crackers here=) This sounds fabulous…mouth-watering..refreshing…cooling, etc. etc. What a terrific recipe. Definitely will be enjoying this yummy dish this summer. I LOVE that we can make ice cream without a freezer because we don't have one. Thanks much for sharing! <3 U Girl!

  15. Yum that looks so good Brandie. I love making ice cream without a ice cream maker. Perfect for summer and what a great combination!
