Having a meal without anything sweet is like a valentine's day without chocolates...says B. With time B has developed his preference for icecreams which surpasses his love for anything and I actually mean anything!! So, instead of a dessert that heats things up, here's one to cool him down: a chocolate-cherry ice cream that's tinted just the tiniest hint of pink. I dont remember if I have mentioned his love of icecream before but he can live on icecreams atleast for a week..( I think so....)
Even if its really really hot where you live right now this ice cream will help. I mean, it won’t make it any cooler outside, but you’ll be so enthralled with the smooth vanilla ice cream, the tart and sweet cherries and the crunchy bits of rich dark chocolate that you won’t notice how hot it is for a few minutes.
I have used a ready made vanilla ice cream from my grocery store. This saves time and gives you the exact taste of what you are actually looking for.
Here goes the recipe,
1/2 kg ready vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups pitted ripe sweet cherries
1/2 cup almonds (roughly chopped)
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine, keep in freezer until used.
Method: I used a ready made ice cream which means we just have to add in all the ingredients turn by turn. Firstly you simmer the cherries and almonds in a deep saucepan untill the cherries soften. Check for sweetness. Cool aside. Pour in the mixture into the vanilla ice cream and churn it well with a spatula.
Lastly add in the choclate chunks and churn again.
Freeze it for few hours or untill the icecream sets.
