Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups
Get your ice cream and cheese cake fix with these Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups. With a grain free option too!
I love cheesecake! That smooth creamy cake with a fruity topping and tasty crust. I didn’t think anything could get better until I tried these Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups and now it is neck and neck with regular cheesecake for my favourite.
These ice cream cups were actually a happy accident. Our oven went on the bomb and we’re waiting for the part to be delivered. So while the oven was out of commission, I decided to try no bake recipes and came across one for a No-Bake Cheesecake.
The recipe didn’t turn out quite like I planned, but these Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups were the result and I couldn’t be happier.
How to make the ice cream layer for these Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups?
For the Ice Cream layer you will need:
- Cream Cheese
- Heavy Whipping cream – When whipped together with the cream cheese, this gives the cheesecake a delicious ice cream tip texture when frozen.
How to make the crust for these Gluten Free Cheesecake Ice Cream Cups?
To make the crust we used Gluten free Digestives or Gluten Free Graham Crackers + Melted Butter.
If you can get either or, they work great in this recipe. We even tried a grain free version by using almonds for the crust instead and it was amazing. We put the option in the recipe notes.
Topping your Ice Cream Cups
The great thing with these ice cream cups is the option to put your own topping. We used homemade jam and it was a hit! Simply check out the jam/preserve section of your grocery and choose what flavor you want to top it with.
Our favorite flavour topping so far was mango and passion fruit jam. (Recipe coming soon!) But these are delicious even without the topping.
With these simple ingredients you can enjoy these yummy cups. Simply whip them together, add to crust, freeze, top and enjoy! Want to try a simple baked cheesecake? Our Gluten Free Cheesecake Bars are simple and yummy too!
