Cherry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Some things just naturally go together.

Some combinations were made to stand out.

Some combinations are so commonplace we can hardly imagine being without them:

Cinnamon and sugar

Please and thank you

Salt and pepper

King and queen

Cookies and cream


Pairing ice cream with a hot summer day is always a great combination. Take it from Olaf, the snowman in Disney’s Frozen:

The hot and the cold are both so intense

Put ’em together, it just makes sense!

Whoever first put chocolate and cherries together should be commemorated. This ingenious pairing is sweet and enticing…and it’s never going out of style.

Cherries Chocolate

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

1.5 cups rice milk

2 Tbsp sugar

4-6 cherries, diced small

2 heaping Tbsp chocolate chunks

Optional: add 1 Tbsp dried cherries

For this recipe, I used an ice cream maker. Freeze the bowl of your ice cream maker a day or two ahead of time.

Stir together the rice milk, sugar, and diced cherries (these should be small and almost mashed). You can save a whole cherry to put on top at the end. Pour the mixed ingredients into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker, operating it as instructed. About 5 to 10 minutes before the ice cream maker is done, add the chocolate chunks and optional dried cherries.

Serve right away or store in the freezer.

This cherry-chocolate combo is a great way to cool off when it’s hot.
