- 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla (or coffee, maple extract)
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup light cream
Combine the cheese, sugar and vanilla and beat for a creamy consistency. Slowly include the cream while continuously mixing. Once mixed put in a container, cover it and place in the freezer for ~2 hours, until it is partially frozen into a soft mushy form. Break up this mixture and blend until smooth. Do not melt!!! Then cover and freeze again until firm.
[Note: to add a fruit puree flavour, example banana; mash up 2 bananas to the chees and sugar, vanilla may (optional) be replaced with rum, 1 tbsp.]
