A spoonful of sweet cream ice cream.
This sweet cream ice cream recipe contains no vanilla. And no eggs. Just milk, heavy cream, sugar, and cream cheese. And it tastes just like Cold Stone Creamery’s version that started the whole sweet cream sensation.

This is a simple-to-follow sweet cream ice cream recipe with good results. My entire family tried the ice cream, and there were good reviews all around. I’d recommend strawberries as a topping or mix-in. I think this would be fabulous served in a waffle cone—perhaps one with a cinnamon or vanilla flavor.–C. Roush

  1. Can I suggest one more? Because this is unique, surprising and just plain yummy. One-of-a-kind ice creams like this one are the the real joy of having an ice cream maker.

    No one will expect the crunch of cinnamon toast and even after it softens — if there’s still some left after several days — it will still have the old-fashioned, homey flavor of bread pudding.

    it’s one of my favs.
