Creamy cherry lemony delight

noun_divider_2142034

   One tasty vanilla ice cream that is layered with delicious cherry sauce with a dash of lemon. It is a combo of divine vanilla aroma, taste of sweet cherries, hint of lemon zest, and a slight crunchiness of pistachios and almonds. 

    To make creamy delightful vanilla ice cream I used vegan liquid whipped cream and homemade vegan cream cheese, some sugar powder and vanilla sugar. To the first (bottom) layer I added some chopped and toasted almonds, and to the second (upper) layer I added some chopped pistachios. 

   For this particular occasion I’ve used store bought cherry sauce to which I added lemon zest.  

     Homemade version of cherry sauce is quite simple to make; it requires some cherries, a bit of water, some sweetener (preferably natural), and a bit of corn starch powder. Cherries ( seedless, approx. 280 gr) should be cooked in water with some natural sweetener or sugar, it should simmer over low heat for 7-10 min. At the end it should be thickened with a approx. 1-2 tbsp. of starch that has been dissolved in couple of tbsp. of water.

 

   This creamy ice cream dessert  should stay 6-8 min. out of freezer before slicing.

      The recipe for this delicacy can be found below the image section.
