Guava and Cream Cheese Ice Cream

Guava and Cream Cheese Ice CreamSo this is the recipe that I feel took me over the top in creations and is one of the first inserts to my Cookbook –  Buy Cookbook Here

A very popular dessert in Cuba is too serve casacaras de guayava con queso crema en galletas cubana (guava shells with cream cheese on Cuban crackers). It sounds different, but it is delicious! It has that really sweet with some salty and definitely creamy flavor. So if you decide not to attempt this recipe, you should give the true dessert a whirl.

So after I created the recipe, I entered it into a Paula Deen contest for Philadelphia Cream Cheese. I didn’t win, but I keep telling myself it’s because I did not follow the rule that the recipe had to take under 30 minutes ; ). There are certain people that have attempted to create this recipe in Miami, FL after me, but I can assure you, this recipe is #1. Try it out and you tell me…

INGREDIENTS – SERVES 4-6 PEOPLE

  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ¾ cups of sugar (extra fine)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup of guava marmalade (I use Conchita)
  • 4 ½ guava shell (small dice) (I use Conchita)

HOW TO MAKE IT…

  1. In a blender, add all the ingredients, except the guava shells and blend together
  2. Place the frozen tub on the ice cream maker and turn on
  3. While the machine is running, pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and let run for about 30 minutes until ice cream thickens
  4. After 20 minutes, add the diced guava shells to the mixture and let mix for the last 10 minutes
  5. Pour all the ice cream into a freezer safe container and place in freezer for about an hour
