Paleo Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream
- Ice cream maker
- In a medium mixing bowl whisk all of the ingredients except the cherries, until combined. Note: If you use chilled coconut milk it will reduce the cooking time.
- Place about a cup of the thawed cherries in a food processor or blender and mix until they're just barely chunky.
- Pour the ice cream base mixture into your ice cream maker and churn per the manufacturer's instructions.
- Then, as the ice cream starts to churn, pour the chunky cherries into your ice cream maker.
- Once the ice cream reaches a soft serve like consistency turn off the ice cream maker and scoop into bowls.
- Top your ice cream with the more whole cherries and their juice from having thawed.
- Eat up! It's a little sweet, a little tart, and a lot delicious!
