I love Cherries.
Lately I have comes across many recipes for ice cream. And this one was no different. This recipe started out one way, and ended up differently as I started to improvise.
1 cup cherries, pitted, and another handful
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp honey or Maple syrup
1-2 dark chocolate squares cut into bits
Blend half cup Greek yogurt, cherries and vanilla extract. Transfer a bowl that is freezer safe.
In a separate bowl mix the remaining Greek yogurt and honey, and toppings of cherry and chocloate bits. Layer on top of the bowl. Using a butter knife to gently swirl the mixture.
Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.
My first attempt used only 1 tbsp Maple syrup as prescribed in the original recipe and I found that wanting. So I repaired the recipe by adding more maple syrup and adding the toppings. The final product was more to my liking.
Eat stand alone, with a slice of cherry cake or I even experimented making a sandwich with two digestive biscuits. Refreshing in this hot, humid weather!
