How to Make Cherry Ice Cream with Pecans


Homemade cherry ice cream just shouts summertime to me. Creamy and tart, light and refreshing. And it is the perfect cold treat to scoop onto a slice of pound cake during a summer barbecue!

In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and half & half until well blended.

Pour cream mixture into ice cream machine and follow manufacturers directions. I use a frozen Kitchen Aid ice cream bowl attachment and churn the ice cream for about 15 minutes until it’s the consistency of a soft serve.

Add a 1/2 inch layer of ice cream to the bottom of a bread pan. Then drop 3-4 spoonfuls of the Tart Cherry concentrate over the ice cream and sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Repeat this process 3 or 4 times until all the ice cream has been transferred from your machine to the bread pan.

Insert a chop stick or butter knife into the layered ice cream and zig zag it across the container to swirl the tart cherry concentrate and pecans in with the ice cream.

Freeze the ice cream overnight and enjoy the next day! You can also customized this recipe by adding vanilla extract, chocolate chips, or different types of cherries.
