Ever since I got a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, my family has been spoiled rotten. No more trips to the store for last minute ice cream cravings; especially since I’ve been making homemade ice cream now for weeks. The family absolutely loves it!  I try to use up ingredients I have on hand. This time, a bunch of fresh cherries were on the chopping block when I created this homemade Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream.

Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream

I have to say, even though I’m not a huge fan of ice cream, this one was INCREDIBLE! I have tried to cut back on the heavy cream by substituting with more milk or half and half and it didn’t come out so well. I guess for me, if I’m going to eat ice cream 3-4 times a year, I’m going all out. Give this Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream a try. It’s super simple to put together, makes 12 half cup servings and you’ll love it ~Enjoy!

    Do you think I can use lactaid milk instead of regular?

      I’m not quite sure what it will do to the consistency, but if you try it, please stop back to let me know how it came out.

    Regarding Jacklyn’s comment about Lactaid, yes, it can be used one-to-one for milk. However, the cream will still contain lactose. A workaround is to use a 13 oz. can of coconut milk (full fat, not lowfat) and either Lactaid or almond milk. Then you’ll want to add a thickener: 1/2 tsp. of guar gum.

    Carrie, can’t wait to try this cherry ice cream recipe! Cherry is one of my favorites, and I agree that it’s great not having a lot of chemicals in it.

      Thank you Carol for providing that information, I really appreciate it. I’ll have to try it that way myself just to see how the consistency is. I hope you enjoy the recipe! 🙂

        You’re very welcome, Carrie. So many people are lactose-intolerant and also can’t tolerate the proteins in cow’s milk. It’s nice to have dairy-free solutions. I just made my daughter some dairy-free chocolate ice cream, and it had a very nice consistency.
