Are you tired of the Summer of Cherries yet?
I hope not, because I’m just getting warmed up. (A favorite Al Pacino line… extra points if you know it.)
I am really digging the cherry tree in our yard. Even standing at the counter pitting each and every one, that has become sort of relaxing. I have cherries in my freezer, in my dehydrator, in all kinds of recipes lately.
This one is simple, sweet and satisfying on a hot day.
cherry vanilla ice cream
dairy, egg and gluten free, vegan
4 cups fresh cherries, pitted
1/4 cup almond milk (vanilla)
1 cup coconut milk (canned)
1/4 cup agave
2 tablespoons cream cheese (Tofutti)
1 tablespoon vanilla paste
In high powered blender, combine cherries and almond milk until smooth. Continue to blend and add coconut milk, agave, cream cheese and vanilla. Transfer to ice cream maker and prepare according to manufacturer directions.
