This sour cherry soft serve tastes like sour cherries and cream and a touch of vanilla all combined into creamy deliciousness. It is a high protein, low fat, ice cream alternative that doesn’t compromise on taste in the slightest.
I used to think I couldn’t make my own ice cream without investing into a pricey ice cream maker. Thankfully, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
All the equipment you’ll need to make this “ice cream” is a food processor. Just put all the ingredients inside; process them until smooth and you’re done. It’s as simple as that.
The sour cherry soft serve you get is just as rich, creamy and decadent as ice cream but with none of the sugar or heavy cream (and unnecessary calories).
To give you a better idea of how much of a difference this upgrade makes, consider this: the sour cherry soft serve has only about a third of calories as opposed to regular ice cream. It even contains 26 times less saturated fat and none of the cholesterol you would normally find in ice cream!

Do you only eat ice cream in the summer time or do you enjoy it all year long? I personally rarely feel like ice cream when it’s cold outside but I’d be curious to hear how you see it.
