Cherry Almond Ice Cream

I really, really like the ice cream I made today.  Perhaps, only because I'm a huge fan of almond extract.  It gives this recipe an amazing flavor!  The recipe is simple and the result is delicious!

2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups fresh cherries, pits removed and chopped into small pieces

I followed a recipe on allrecipes.com pretty closely, taking note of some online reviews which said that the almond extract needed to be reduced and the cherries needed to be chopped smaller (both of which are reflected in my version of the recipe).

Please note that it will look like very soupy ice cream after 15 minutes in an ice cream maker, but I promise that it freezes up beautifully!

  1. Mmm...that looks tasty. Now you have me craving ice cream! I tried convincing Craig that we need an ice cream maker but he said he'd rather just buy it.

    I love almond extract too. Sounds like a lovely combo!
