Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream from The Splendid Scoop

Beat the heat with this homemade treat.


  • 4 cups full-fat coconut milk my pick
  • 2-4 tbsp. fine organic cane sugar or coconut sugar whiz it up in a food processor to make it extra fine (my pick)
  • 1/8 tsp. granulated stevia powder optional - add 1-2 extra tbsp. of sugar if you omit this (my pick)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract OR vanilla bean powder my pick
  • 1-2 tbsp. rum vodka, etc. OR grass-fed gelatin, optional (my pick)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cherries pitted and roughly chopped


  • Mix all the ingredients together with a hand mixer until thoroughly combined.
  • Chill completely, at least 4-6 hours, or overnight.
  • Prepare according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
  • About halfway through the churning time, add the cherries. That way everything doesn't sink to the bottom.
  • No ice cream maker? No problem. Jessica has tips to make this without one in her book.
