Amarena Cherry Gelato Recipe

Prep Time 2 hrs
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 25 mins
Servings 8


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup Amarena cherries in syrup


  • In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low-speed to combine the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream, and vanilla.
  • Turn the ice cream/gelato machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Five minutes before mixing is completed, add the Amarena cherries and let mix in completely. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
