Lemon Cheesecake Ice Cream

Dear Elise,

I just realised I’ve never started a letter to you that way, it’s always to my Lulu. But it’s such a pretty name and I should use it more! So today I’ll write to my big girl, my first born, my Elise.

What a year you have had! You have been brave and courageous as you have taken on not one but two new schools, an interstate move and more change than you have ever experienced before.

And you have thrived!

Your Dad and I couldn’t be prouder!

You are confident and friendly and considerate.

You are compassionate and caring and joyful.

You are everything you have always been and every day you are something more.

We learn so much from your outgoing nature, your wise words and your inquisitive ways.

We learn so much from your positive attitude and your willingness to help.

You have always been and continue to be the one who keeps my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds and I love you for this alone.

Never let your hand fall from mine.

Love Mum xx

        I can really notice the difference in your more recent recipes compared to earlier ones…not that there was anything wrong with those but you’ve really improved. The lighting and the way you set up the shot makes it look so appetizing!

    Wow, this looks fabulous. However, would it be possible to substitute the cream cheese for coconut yoghurt, as I am allergic to dairy? Thanks Bianca for all your amazing recipes.

    • Thank you. Try it out and let me know what you think! It sounds lovely. x

    I would also like to know what you could use instead of the cream cheese if dairy free? Thank you.

    Wow, so good. Love the flavours. We had 6 friends over and they all loved it. I managed to hide one serving that I’ll eat after dinner tonight. I’ll definitely be making this again. Tina
