Makes 6 servings 1x 2x 4x


  1. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract and carefully fold the mixture together until combined.
  2. Pour half of the ice cream mixture into a standard loaf pan and sprinkle in half of the chopped Mezzetta® Maraschino Cherries Without Stems. Pour the remaining ice cream mixture on top and sprinkle in the remaining chopped cherries.
  3. Transfer to the freezer to freeze for at least 6 hours, ideally overnight. Remove the loaf pan from the freezer and allow the ice cream to sit for 8-10 minutes at room temperature before scooping and serving with desired toppings.
  4. Enjoy!
