Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, “Copycat”

When I was a kid, my parents always took us to Cold Stone and my mom would giddily order Cherry Garcia Ice Cream every time. Those were the days of anything and everything chocolate, chocolate, chocolate and nothing with fruit, so I didn’t understand. It was so confusing. Why, when she could get chocolate ice cream topped with chocolate sprinkles and chocolate chip cookies, why on God’s green earth would she order Cherry Garcia Ice Cream? Then I grew up, went to college, and my tastebuds started changing, and suddenly I was like, where’s the Cherry Garcia?80-Calorie Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, "Copycat" by Skinny Girl Standard, a low-calorie cooking and baking blog80-Calorie Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, "Copycat" by Skinny Girl Standard, a low-calorie cooking and baking blogThis is what happened on a day of severely craving Cherry Garcia Ice Cream.

Skinny 80-Calorie Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, “Copycat”

Yield: 3 Servings

Serving Size: 3/4 cup

Calories per serving: 78 - 82

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt, regular (80 calories - I used Light & Fit)
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons Truvia, depending on sweetness of yogurt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or, as I prefer, unsweetened coconut milk (about 23 - 34 calories)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (3 calories)
  • 1/2 cup pitted cherries, tossed in 1 tablespoon Truvia (60 calories)
  • 1 chocolate square, such as Ghirardelli, shaved (about 70 calories, depending)

Instructions

  1. If using an ice cream maker, mix together yogurt, almond milk, vanilla extract, salt, and Truvia in a medium-sized bowl first.
  2. Once ice cream bucket has chilled for approximately 8 hours,power it on and pour in ingredients.
  3. Allow paddle to stir for several minutes before adding in cherries and chocolate. Churn until mix is frozen, peeling ice cream off sides and forming into a cohesive "dough-like" ball.
  4. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes before transferring into a freezer-safe tub.
  5. If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can still make and enjoy this recipe - it simply requires more time and effort. In this case, you'll need to combine all ingredients in a freezer-safe tub and store in freezer until completely chilled. Stir ice cream as often as possible, about every half-hour, until mixture freezes. Unfortunately, you can't really expect your texture to be like ice cream - it will more so resemble a snow cone - but it will still be tasty!
  6. Feel free to top with some sliced almonds like I did - SO yummy!
