I did not intent to make cherry ice cream this week. In fact I am fairly against cherry ice cream. Personally I think it tastes a bit like cough syrup. However cherries are back in season in the PNW and being new here, I forget how amazing they are. This version of cherry ice cream does not taste like cough syrup, it is sweet and delicious. I thought about adding in some chocolate chips, but I honestly think that would take away from the flavor. Rather I could recommend pairing this weeks flavor with some brownies.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup sugar
0.5 cup pitted cherries
In a blender create the base by combining the milk, cherries, and sugar. Blend until the cherries are smooth.
Remove from blender and stir in the heavy cream.
Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Serve and enjoy!
