Ice Cream Success!

Posted on July 13, 2012. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , , |

Mom and dad got me an ice cream maker for my birthday last week, and last night I finally had time to try it. Well, kind of. I found out while trying to make the ice cream that you need to leave the freezer bowl in the freezer for quite a long time, about over night, before you can make ice cream. So I just finished it a while ago. It’s a mixture of a recipe that was in the book that came with the maker, and an idea of my own. I wanted pineapple cherry, but I ended up with cherry pineapple because the cherry flavor was much stronger than the pineapple flavor, which is totally fine. I also made some sugar cookie bowls to go along with it, thanks to one of my birthday presents from Matt (he also got me a kitchen aid, but I’m not breaking that out until I move). Hope you like it!

Cherry Pineapple Ice Cream

1 cp whole milk
3/4 cp granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 cps heavy cream (I used 1/2 n 1/2)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp maraschino cherry juice
2 tsp pineapple juice
Cut maraschino cherries and pineapple chunks

  1. Whisk together milk, sugar and salt until sugar has dissolved. Stir in cream, vanilla, cherry and pineapple juices. Cover and put in the fridge for 1 -2 hours or over night.
  2. Mix to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Mine took about 20 minutes to make.
