A particularly hot summer in Washington State means we can’t get enough ice cream! This recipe by Coryanne of our Kitchen Council is particularly great because it relies on the sweet flavors of Stemilt cherries, comes together in no time at all and, because it is egg-free, is the perfect homemade ice cream for those with egg allergies or diet restrictions. Enjoy!
On a hot summer day the last thing I want to do is wait around for homemade ice cream. Yes, frozen custard is amazing, so creamy, so rich, but really, on a hot day with three children eager for a scoop of ice cream, I need a no-cook option that will allow us dive into fresh homemade ice cream in minutes. The biggest difference with an egg-free ice cream, apart from the no cook prep time, is the consistency. Egg-free ice cream is a bit more delicate, slightly thinner and sets harder –making it ideal for a soft serve approach to dishing it out.
With Stemilt’s sweet cherries in season, and with a bottle of simple cherry syrup in my fridge, this cherry ice cream is like summer in a single scoop. So sweet, so tart and so fragrant that you will want to make two batches because the first will be gone in a blink of an eye. If you think it is great on its own, try it in a milkshake…amazing!
This recipe for no-egg ice cream can be ready in minutes, and is so simple you can sit back and let the little chefs in your kitchen take charge.
