Creamy, rich, and not too sweet, this bold goat cheese ice cream with chocolate taste likes a gourmet frozen cheesecake.

I have a serious cheese complex.
You’ll find ‘Made in Vermont’ stamped on every cheese (and dairy product) in my section of the fridge. We just have the best stuff here — I see no reason to purchase anything else.
I clearly have a thing for making goat cheese into a sweet treat (chevre + pumpkin brownies anyone?), so ice cream was an obvious choice.
My first experience with goat cheese ice cream was super early on in my food exploration days. Working at a health food store, I discovered beautiful pints of ice cream in the cooler section.
I wasn’t sure how to even go about making my own. How much chevre is too much? How much isn’t enough. I scoured the interwebs — ‘goat cheese ice cream’. I found that the easiest way is to simply whisk up a cup of good chevre and throw it into your typical heavy cream + whole milk ice cream base. Easy enough. I needed something a bit more next level though…because if you’re throwing cheese in your ice cream, why not add some chocolate too.
Guys, it tastes like chocolate cheesecake. Creamy. Rich. Not overly sweet. It’s damn near perfect. Try it try it try it!Print
