Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream

My favorite store-bought ice cream is Blue Bell Cherry Vanilla. It is super tasty. But as you may know, Blue Bell has pulled their ice cream off the shelves. And we are rapidly approaching summer, people. SO! I decided to alter my fruit ice cream recipe from my mother-in-law, and make my own Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream. And let me tell you - it is delicious!

Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 pint whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
1 jar maraschino cherries, undrained
Whole milk
Rock salt

Pour the maraschino cherry juice into the ice cream maker. Stir in whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. Add vanilla.

On a cutting board, slice cherries in half and stir in the ice cream maker. Fill milk to fill line.

Put in paddle and put on lid. Put the can inside the bucket. Put motor on top of ice cream and secure in place. Sprinkle rock salt along the bottom of the bucket around the can. Top salt with ice cubes. Repeat layers until the ice is almost the same height as the lid of the bucket. Plug in the freezer and wait around 20-40 minutes or until the motor stops. Take off lid and enjoy.

One of the great things about this recipe - as compared to other ice cream recipes that I have made - is that it is easier to scoop out after you refreeze it in your freezer. Print Friendly and PDF Pin It
