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.

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 and you’ll love it!
