MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use vegan cream cheese for cream cheese, unsweetened coconut cream for heavy cream, and unsweetened oat milk for whole milk. Whisk the coconut cream until smooth, then add the remaining ingredients.

MAKE IT LITE: Use ½ teaspoon stevia and 2 ½ tablespoons raw agave nectar for granulated sugar. Process on the LITE ICE CREAM program.

TIP: Since the MIX-IN program does not break down harder ingredients, we recommend using mini chocolate chips for perfectly sized chunks.

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, for mix-in

Utensils

  • Rubber Spatula
  • Microwave-Safe Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a large, microwave-safe bowl, microwave the cream cheese for 10 seconds. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and with a rubber spatula, combine until the mixture looks like frosting, about 60 seconds.

  • Step 2

    Slowly mix in the heavy cream and milk until fully combined and sugar is dissolved.

  • Step 3

    Pour base into an empty CREAMi™ pint. Place storage lid on pint and freeze for 24 hours.

  • Step 4

    Remove pint from freezer and remove lid from pint. Place pint in outer bowl, install Creamerizer™ Paddle onto outer bowl lid, and lock the lid assembly on the outer bowl. Place bowl assembly on motor base and twist the handle right to raise the platform and lock in place.

  • Step 5

    Select ICE CREAM and process.

  • Step 6

    With a spoon, create a 1 ½-inch (3.8 cm) wide hole that reaches the bottom of the pint. During this process, it is okay for your treat to press above the MAX FILL line. Add chocolate chips to the hole in the pint and process again using the MIX-IN program.

  • Step 7

    When processing is complete, remove ice cream from pint and serve immediately.
