Easy Cherry Lambic Ice Cream

Easy Cherry Lambic Ice Cream

When I first heard the words “beer ice cream” while visiting Belgium this summer, I was reluctant to try. But once I did, I couldn’t believe what I was missing. My husband and I loved the lambic cherry beer ice cream so much, we searched the Internet for recipes when we got home.

We came across a cherry lambic ice cream recipe that did not require an ice cream machine. In this recipe, you are not actually making ice cream, but flavoring it. Lambic is a sour Belgium style beer that requires open fermentation and wild yeasts and bacteria.

The ingredients are:

  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup pitted cherries (fresh or frozen)
  • 12 oz. bottle of lambic
  • 1/4 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips

First we boiled down the lambic…

I chopped the cherries. The recipe says to chop in quarters, but I went a little further making the pieces a bit smaller.

As we waited for the lambic to boil down, my husband and I enjoyed a bottle of Liefman’s Sour Cherry Kriek. Cheers!

Once the lambic was boiled down to half a cup, we had to let it cool.

Then we mixed all the ingredients together in a large bowl.

We put the bowl in the freezer and a few hours later it was hard enough to scoop and serve.
