  • 1 Ice Cream machine


  • 2 cups Whipping cream
  • 2 cups Milk whole, 2%, non-fat, whatever you have on hand or your particular preference. We used 2% in this recipe.
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup Cherry juice
  • 20 Maraschino cherries quartered


Ice Cream Prep

  • In a large bowl, combine the whipping cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and cherry juice, mix with a handheld electric mixer for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and run according to normal instructions. This is about 25-30 minutes, see tips in post for when to know the churning is complete!
  • While you are waiting for this step, get your cherries prepped. Cut each cherry into quarters, you want nice bite sized pieces.
  • Then, about 5 minutes before the ice cream is done, add in the cherries.


  • Once the ice cream has been churned, it should have a soft-serve like consistency and texture. If you like your ice cream this way, feel free to enjoy it immediately.
  • If you prefer your ice cream a bit more frozen and thicker consistency, stick it in the freezer for a few hours. I set mine in there for 3-4 hours and it turned out absolutely delicious!
  • If you want to add some extra toppings like mini-chocolate chips or sprinkles, feel free!
  • Serve and enjoy!
