Amaretto ice cream


Amaretto ice cream

I remember some years ago I was in a cafeteria in Strasbourg and I wanted to buy some ice cream. One of it was called Amaretto and it was white and pink with some dark red veins. I hesitated as I did not know what could it be. Someone in the group of tourists bought an order and so I found it was bitter cherry ice cream.

These days, when temperatures are growing, I feel like eating ice cream all day long :) Therefore I dared to make Amaretto ice cream.

I used a base of lemon ice cream:
- 150 g yogurt 
- 200 g sour cream (whole)
- juice and zest of one lemon
- 100 g powdered sugar 
- 100 ml whipped cream 
- 150 g bitter cherry jam.

Mix the yogurt, sour cream, sugar and whipped cream until fluffy. Add the lemon juice and zest. Then add bitter cherry jam, stirring it gently with a spoon, and then leave in the freezer for at least 5-6 hours. When serving add bitter cherry syrup over the ice cream cups. For the syrup, combine 1 tbs of jam with 2 tbs of hot water.


Enjoy!
