Take a scoop of your very own homemade ice cream in no time at all with our quick and easy no-churn cheats cherry ice cream.
If you’ve ever wanted to make delicious ice cream at home but haven’t got the time or right equipment, this cherry ice cream recipe is perfect. Blitzing frozen fruits into the sweetened cream will instantly freeze it and ‘churn’ it into a silky-smooth ice cream.
Go wild and try this with any type of frozen fruits, or ditch the cream and whip up a simple sorbet.
We made our own cones to serve the ice cream in, which we would absolutely recommend doing, at least once, but shop bought cones will be just as effective. If you prefer, the ice cream is also delicious served with crisp meringue or as a cookie sandwich.
- 600ml whipping cream
- 60g icing sugar
- 1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped
- 400g frozen black cherries
- for the ice cream cones
- 2 eggs

Pulse the whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla in a food processor until thickened, add the frozen berries and blitz until smooth. Spoon into a container and keep in the freezer until required.
To make the cones, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and heat a waffle cone maker, add 2tbsp of batter into the centre, close the lid and cook for 1 min until golden. Remove from the waffle cone maker and shape into cones. Keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
