No ice cream maker, 4 ingredient ice cream

No eggs, no cooking and just 4 ingredients for the easiest ice cream ever. All you need is cherries, cream, milk and sugar, and a blender!

We used Scottish cherries here from Scotty Brand as they are in season. Scotty Brand cherries are a variety called Sweetheart. The Scottish cherry season is short starting in the second half of July and lasting for about a month.

It’s summer, it’s hot and cherries are in season so what better excuse to make some ice cream. This one really is super easy, with 4 ingredients and a blender. No ice cream maker here, just your freezer.

If you feel like something very different, try our Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream.
