If you’re trying to watch your sugar intake or just gravitate towards less-sweet desserts, then this one is for you.

This cheesecake is less dense and much creamier than a traditional New York -style cheesecake. It’s been something that was made frequently while we were growing up, and though I loved it, it at times was not sweet enough for me. When I want a dessert, sometimes I just want something sugary. If you’re like me, you need something to amp it up; enter the strawberry ice cream. You can make your own or buy it from the store, but trust me when I say that the combination will blow you away. A bite of the creamy cheesecake mixed with the sweet strawberry ice cream – it’s the absolute best.
