Only 3 simple ingredients to make this strawberry ice cream in a jiffy!  It is delicious and no ice cream maker required.  I made this one day when I was craving ice cream.  My ice cream maker is broken (to be fair I had it for many years), so you know how the story goes, “Necessity is the Mother of Invention!”  I can't emphasize enough - you're going to love this ice cream!

8 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
  (not softened – straight from the refrigerator)
24 oz frozen strawberries (680 g)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 11/cups sugar (300 mL)

  OR use your own favorite sweetener, to taste!

In food processor, process cream cheese (break up into bits first) until smooth.  Slice the frozen strawberries (nuke briefly – maybe 30 seconds) with a knife into smaller pieces.  Place on top of the cream cheese and process along with the sweetener.  Serve immediately for soft serve or freeze for an hour for firmer, scoopable ice cream.  Another way to make this:  Process the frozen strawberries first until broken up into little bits and then add the cream cheese and sweetener....this is probably the easier route.  Cut up the cream cheese into bits.  

Helpful Hints:  If the strawberries are frozen solid, stuck to one another and covered in ice, nuke about 40 seconds.  Then rinse under running cold water in a colander to remove ice.  Pat dry with paper towels.
