Whip up this easy cherry ice cream recipe this summer for a fresh and fun frozen treat!
One of my favorite parts of summer is making homemade ice cream with my kids. They love getting in the kitchen with me to make their favorite ice cream flavors and then of course eat it on a hot summer day.
A few years ago I discovered an easy three ingredient ice cream recipe that doesn't need an ice cream maker.
I've had fun making different variations on the ice cream like adding fresh peaches to make Peach Ice Cream. We made Red White and Blue ice cream recently, and the red part was just begging for cherries!
I replaced the vanilla extract in the base recipe for cherry juice from a jar of maraschino cherries to give the ice cream a cherry flavor. I also added in chopped maraschino cherries.
I mixed the cherry juice in to the condensed milk first just so I wasn't over mixing the ice cream.
The brown of the condensed milk did however darken the color of the ice cream. I was hoping for a bright pink color but it was definitely more muted. It still tastes amazing!
Once the ingredients are stirred together, it's time to freeze the ice cream. I have an actual ice cream container, but any container that's freezable will work. I've used a plastic bowl and a metal loaf pan before.
This cherry ice cream recipe is super quick and easy to make, but it does require a few dishes. For some reason everyone around here loves to help me make and eat the ice cream, but no one loves to help me do the dishes.
That's ok, though, because I have a few secret weapons when it comes to doing dishes. I rely on P&G Household Needs products to help me do the dishes when all my little ice cream making “helpers” disappear. It's the little details that make Cascade Complete Action Packs and Dawn Platinum Advanced Power different from other brands.
My first line of defense is my dishwasher. A few years ago we had some major issues getting all of our dishes clean in the dishwasher clean.
After a lot of trial and error, we found that Cascade is the only dishwasher soap we can rely on to get the dishes clean. The Advanced powder is my go to detergent. I pick up a large box at Costco because I use it so often.
I've been using Dawn for dishes that need to be hand washed for years. I also use it to clean my bathroom! I grab the large bottle at Costco as well because I use it all year long to get dishes clean.
