No-Churn Black Forest Ice Cream

Creamy vanilla ice cream swirled with cherry sauce, Kirsch, and chocolate chunks.

This super creamy no churn ice cream is inspired by a traditional Black Forest cake! With German cherry liqueur and plenty of chocolate, it's the best summer dessert- especially served in a cone!

Ingredients Needed

Heavy whipping cream, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, Kirsch (or cherry liqueur), salt, cherry filling, and chopped chocolate. You can add brownie or chocolate cake pieces too!

In a stand mixer with the wire whip attachment, whip the heavy cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form. This will take about 3 minutes.

Step 1

Gently fold in sweetened condensed milk, salt, and Kirsch. Make sure to fold everything super gently with your spatula so you don't lose any air.

Step 2

Next, fold in the cherry sauce and your chopped chocolate chunks. Again, be very gentle when mixing!

Step 3

Pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan. Swirl in more cherry filling and top with more chopped chocolate.

Step 4

Freeze for at least 6 hours or until frozen solid. Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving.

Step 5

Serve your ice cream with whipped cream, hot fudge, and a cherry and enjoy! Want to make this recipe? Check out the full instructions at:
