No churn cherry chip ice cream is a combination of sweet, roasted cherries, chocolate chunks, and a creamy no churn ice cream base that is flavored with high quality bourbon.


  • 2 pounds of dark cherries, stemmed and pitted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons high quality bourbon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped chocolate (milk or dark, depending on your preferences)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chop cherries into halves and toss in a pyrex dish with sugar and salt. Roast in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  2. Once finished, allow to cool to room temperature. You can expedite this process by placing the cherries and their syrup in the fridge.
  3. Once ready to prepare the ice cream, remove 1/2 cup of the roasted cherries and place the remaining cherries and syrup into a food processor or blender to puree. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip cream to stiff peaks.
  5. In a separate large bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk, cherry puree, and bourbon. Fold the whipped cream into the milk mixture. Fold in the remaining chopped cherries and chocolate.
  6. Spread the mixture into two loaf pans or into one larger, freezer-safe dish. Place in freezer for 6 hours or until frozen.


  • For a smooth ice cream, puree all of the cherries and strain using a fine mesh strainer prior to adding to the milk and whipped cream.
