How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream:

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

Transfer the heavenly mixture into the Ninja Creamy pint and secure the lid.

Freeze the pint for at least 24 hours, allowing the magic to happen.

After 24 hours, unveil the frozen delight, place it into the pint holder, and secure the lid with the blade.

Let the Ninja Creamy work its magic on the ice cream function. For the ultimate texture, two respins are key.

If you’re feeling a bit extravagant, create a hole in the ice cream to add in chocolate chips, chunks, or even more cherries. Use the “mix-ins” function for that extra oomph.

Substitutions for the Adventurous

No goat’s milk? No problem! Regular milk, is a suitable alternative. Keep in mind that this might alter the nutrition profile.

Fresh cherries unavailable? Frozen cherries are a welcome substitute.

Storing Your Ice Cream Masterpiece

When freezing the ice cream pint, ensure the lid is securely on, and it’s placed flat in the freezer. Your creation can last 3 to 6 months, but if you can’t resist finishing it in one go, flatten the top, replace the lid, and store it back in the freezer. When you’re ready for another round of indulgence, run it on the ice cream function for two spins.
