Pistachio-Cherry No Churn Ice Cream
Welcome to Day 3 of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to treat you to tons of amazing ice cream recipes. Ice Cream Week is shaping up to be the best week ever!
No churn ice cream is a new concept for me. I grew up going to Saturday Night Ice Cream Socials but at those socials, we always churned our ice cream, so I had no idea I could ever accomplish a creamy ice cream without churning it! This Pistachio-Cherry No Churn Ice Cream was my first attempt and it turned out pretty creamy and amzaing!
Grumpy’s favorite ice cream flavor is pistachio. Anytime we have gone out for ice cream, that is always the flavor he wants. If we get to a stand and there is no pistacho, he pouts 🙂 So, I couldn’t let Ice Cream Week go by without making his favorite flavor. To kick it up a little bit and to add some more color, I added some fresh pitted cherries. As a child, my favorite shake flavor to get at the ice cream stand was cherry. I loved the bits of cherry that would clog up my straw. So, in honor of two of our favorites, I have created this recipe for you. I hope you enjoy it!
