What is the purpose of adding Amaretto to the ice cream?
It's two reasons, actually.
One is to keep the ice crystals at bay while the ice cream is freezing. The tiny touch of alcohol will keep the no-churn ice cream a smooth and creamy consistency.
And the second is to amp up the almond flavor!
Can I leave the amaretto out of this cherry almond ice cream?
YES! By all means, leave it out if you're not a fan, or if you're feeding kids.
You may have slightly more ice crystals in your finished product, but the flavor will still be incredible!
What can I use as a substitution for the Amaretto?
You can either leave it out altogether or feel free to substitute the amaretto with almond syrup.
How to make homemade cherry almond ice cream;
- In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
- *Note - if using a stand mixer, freeze the bowl and whip beforehand to make the whipping process go faster.
- Add the sweetened condensed milk, cherry pie filling, amaretto (if using), almond extract, and a small pinch of salt.
- Fold or gently stir the mixture until completely combined.
- Spoon the cherry cream into large bowl or dish and freeze at least 4 hours, or until firm.
- Allow the ice cream to sit for 10 minutes at room temperature before scooping.

How long will this ice cream keep in the freezer?
Cover the frozen ice cream with plastic wrap, or a tight-fitting lid, and keep it in the freezer for up to two months. However, once you make it, there's no way it's going to last that long! 🙂
