Blended Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

A simple, sweet, creamy, and decadent miniature chocolate chip loaded ice cream using blended cherry pie filling, heavy cream, milk, vanilla, and sugar.

Now that the 4-Year Blogiversary of Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck is officially over, I was left with the decision of what the first recipe for our fifth year of food, recipe, and Brenna-related blogging should in fact be. Honestly, it wasn’t much of a decision. In this case, ice cream was the only way to go. I mean, really y’all, I’ve only shared four ice cream recipes so far this summer; I’m such a slacker. Just in case you missed any of those four previous ice cream recipes, they were Golden Oreo Peach Cobbler Ice CreamCherry Graham Cracker Pie Frozen Custard, Strawberry Sauce Reese’s Ice Cream, and Garden Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream.

Usually, I return our ice cream machine to our overcrowded garage at the end of summer so that I can focus on more baked treats. I thought it was only fitting that I should give our little ol’ ice cream machine one last chance to shine before squirreling it away for the winter. One last chance to create a creamy concoction that would allow us to sit on our back porch each evening in the cooling summer breezes and ooh and ahh after each fruit and chocolate-laden bite. One more chance to once again find ourselves covered in mosquito bites the morning after ice cream indulgence because we just couldn’t bear to bring ourselves inside away from their persistent late-summer attacks.

You get the point. Summer is ending, school is back in session, Labor Day is only a little over a week away, and mums, pumpkins, and skeletons are already starting to hit the stores. Is there a better way to say goodbye to summer than to make a batch of Blended Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream? I think not. Especially considering that pumpkin spice everything is about to become a reality. Sigh. While I’m ready for all of the Halloween decorations, I’m just not sure I’m ready to be faced with the startling shock of how many foods can be ruined by adding pumpkin spice to them. Do you agree, or are you simply one of the masses that worships this disturbing food trend?

Suggestions:

  • I suggest using Homemade Bing Cherry Pie Filling in this recipe. As an added bonus, you will have enough pie filling leftover to make two Cherry Bundt Breakfast Danishes. Canned pie filling will work just as well, however, homemade is always better.
  • This ice cream will take a bit longer to churn due to the water content of the cherries.

    This sounds soooo good! I just realized that Summer is almost over and I haven’t used my ice cream machine at all this season. I think I’ll have to get it out and give this a try 🙂
