Coconut ice cream with a gorgeous cherry and spiced rum ripple – so smooth and dreamy, creamy and very easy to make. The perfect summer dessert.

My cherry addiction continues with this simple coconut ice cream with a cherry and spiced rum ripple.

Smooth and creamy dreamy coconut cream with vanilla and a splash of natural coconut flavouring for extra coconutty-ness. This is entirely optional but I think it adds a certain something.

And then with a spiced rum (again the rum is optional) sweet cherry ripple–oh la la! Absolutely delicious!

I used an Icecream maker attachment on my mixer to make this, but don’t worry if you haven’t got one. Just make sure you stir to break the ice crystals every few hours.

Enjoy xx
