We had a busy and hot week so I made this very easy ice cream… twice! First with some beautiful strawberries from a local farmer and then again with these pretty cherries. Both flavors tasted really good and refreshing and it's actually a pretty healthy treat too. So I decided to share the super easy recipe today. You only need 4 ingredients! Fruit, water, coconut milk and sweetener (sugar, honey or sugar substitute).
First prepare the fruit. This is where it became a little messy, but I loved the color of the cherry juice so much!
Look at that deep red color! I added water and a little bit of sucralose to the splashed cherries. But you can also add sugar, honey or agave sirop.
Then blend the cherries and add half a can of coconut milk:
When the mixture tastes good (add some more water or honey or cherries if needed), pour it in the ice machine. If you don't have an ice maker, use a metal bowl that you put in the freezer and wisk every 20-30 minutes. I set the timer on my phone to remind me. It took about 2 hours. But an ice maker is slightly better because it creates ice with less ice cristals, which means more creamy.
Tadaaaah, there you have it: homemade ice cream that tastes really good. The only disappointing thing with the cherry ice cream is the color. While I loooooved the color of the juice, the final result has a rather boring antique pink hue 😉 But yummm!
I wish you a nice ice cream worthy weekend!
