Creamy no churn cherry chunk ice cream is a creamy and refreshing summer dessert that is made in under 30 minutes.  Made with fresh cherries and swirled with chopped chocolate chunks, this treat is sure to please.



  • 720 g (4 cups) sweet cherries, pitted
  • 73 g (1/3 cup) granulated sugar
  • 30 g (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
  • 1.4 g (1/4 teaspoon) salt
  • 396 g (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 g (1 teaspoon) pure almond extract
  • 480 g (2 cups) heavy whipping cream
  • 85 g (1/2 cup) roughly chopped semi-sweet chocolate chunks


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cherries, sugar, lemon juice, and salt over medium heat.  Using a fork, gently mash cherries.  Allow mixture to come to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook cherries, occasionally stirring, for 20 minutes until cherries have softened and the juices have slightly thickened.  Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
  2. Once cooled, reserve 1/3 of the cherries and place the rest plus their juices into a food processor and pulse to a puree.
  3. In a large bowl, mix cherry puree, condensed milk, and almond extract.  Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream on medium-high until stiff peaks form.  Gently fold in the whipped heavy cream into the cherry mixture.  Fold in reserved 1/3 cup cherries and chopped chocolate.
  5. Spread the mixture in a freezer-safe resealable container and freeze for at least 4 hours or until frozen.
