It’s hard to imagine summers without ice cream. It’s even harder to decide the flavor to comfort your senses. But it’s hardest to wait for your turn in an ice cream parlor for your dose of frozen decadence. But why torture your sweet tooth with all those moments of impatient waiting when you can soothe your ice cream cravings anytime at home? Just whip up a large batch of this Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream, a delicious frozen treat and indulge! Opt for this no-churn version which doesn’t call for any fancy ice cream maker and prepare ice cream like a pro.

The condensed milk, whipping cream and natural flavors of vanilla bean paste creates a delectable base for any flavor you love; this cherry ice cream with a hint of nutty undertone is not an exception either. Apart from being light and creamy, the chunks of mashed cherries add a pleasant texture to this dessert, thus adding to its yum quotient. Just make sure you don’t squeeze out the juice from the cherry halves or pat them dry before incorporating them into the mixture; a juicy cherry chunk is always better than a dry chewy one!

Now rush to the recipe and stay cool this summer!
