5 ingredients : cherry & chocolate chip ice cream

2  cups heavy cream

1/2 cup light agave nectar (as needed)

2 teaspoon kirsch

2 1/2 cups cherries

3-4 tablespoons organic cacao nibs

Pulse cherries, kirsch and agave (kept it a little chunky).  Then, I let the mixture sit for about 45 minutes- during which time, my husband and I took our babies on a walk around our complex.  I then added the heavy cream and mixed it.   Place mixture into ice cream maker and follow the manufactures instructions.
My husband couldn’t wait to taste it so we scooped some out for him, added some whipped cream and a fresh cherry on top!

i guess he likes it!!!  he says, very “YUM”

Store in the freezer. Let it rest on the counter for a few minutes prior to scooping.


About emashita

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. My life didn’t change much, but in April of 2011, I became very ill and was diagnosed with full on diabetes. It was a bit of a wake-up call for me and I quickly changed my eating habits. I scoured the internet for information about what to eat and what to avoid when it comes to a diabetic lifestyle. I cut out refined sugars, glutens, rice and pretty much all starches. After 90 days, I went in for blood work and was told that I was free and clear of diabetes. To live a healthy lifestyle inside and out is challenging and rewarding all at once. I started this blog to share my delicious (e is for Emilie and mashita means delicious in Korean) life with friends & family, and of course with new friends that stumble upon my site.
