Cherry Ice Cream

A couple of months ago we got a ninja creami on clearance. Since then I’ve been having fun making ice cream. It’s a pretty handy thing – you mix up your pint, freeze it, then the next day you pop it in what is vaguely like a blender, and voila! Ice cream.

Anyway, this one is cherry:

  • 1 TBS cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cherry flavoring
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 5 or 6 cherries cut in half and pitted

Microwave cream cheese 10 seconds to soften, then mix in sugar and cherry flavor. You can add a little vanilla if you want, too, for a more cherry vanilla flavor.

Add whipping cream 1/4 at a time and fully incorporate each before adding the next.

Add cherries, then milk. If you have room in the pint, you can add more of whichever you prefer to fill it to the max line.

Freeze, then process in your creami.

And that’s what I have for today. Still have “the covid” so thats fun.

Have a cherry-iffic day!
