Simple Cherry Ice Cream: Better than ‘Nice’ Cream

Just 3 ingredients plus frozen fruit for a super luscious and creamy treat – that’s healthy!

  • Author: Serena Ball


  • 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen dark sweet cherries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (reduced-fat 2% or full-fat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Remove the frozen cherries from the freezer and place on the counter to thaw slightly.

Place sugar in the food processor and process for 1 full minute to make the sugar granules very fine. (Place a kitchen towel over the food processor if the sugar dust begins to escape.)

Add the frozen cherries to the sugar and pulse until finely chopped, but not pureed.

Add the yogurt and vanilla and process until mixture is smooth.

Serve or place in a cold metal bowl and freeze until ready to use. Cherry Ice Cream will still remain ‘scoopable’ even after freezing over night.
