  • 2 1/2 cups cream (heavy whipping or coconut milk, 600g / 21.2 oz)
  • 1 cup crème fraîche (heavy whipping or coconut milk, 600g / 21.2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (heavy whipping or coconut milk, 600g / 21.2 oz)
  • 20 drops stevia extract (heavy whipping or coconut milk, 600g / 21.2 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla beans

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons agar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons gelatin
  • 3/4 cup cherries (heavy whipping or coconut milk, 600g / 21.2 oz)


  • Pour the cream (or the coconut milk) in a large sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup cream for later.
  • Add the Erythritol and stevia and stir well.
  • If using vanilla bean, cut the vanilla bean lenghtwise and scrape the seeds out.
  • Add the seeds to the cream.
  • Cook until your instant-read thermometer reaches 80 °C/ 175 °F.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the egg yolks with the remaining cream.
  • Slowly pour about a cup of the hot mixture into the egg yolk mixture while whisking.
  • Then, slowly pour the egg mixture back in the sauce pan and keep mixing.
  • Cook until the temperature on your instant-read thermometer reaches 85 °C/ 185 °F.
  • Take off the heat and set aside.
  • Mix the gelatine with the water and pour it into the cream mixture.
  • Set the sauce pan over an ice bath (bowl filled with iced water) and let it cool down.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix in well.
  • If used, add the crème fraîche / soured cream and mix until well combined.
  • Pour into the into the ice-cream maker (I use Cuisinart) and process according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • It may take anything between 30-60 minutes depending on your ice-cream maker.
  • When done, place in a freezer-friendly container and add the Amarenata.
  • Mix slightly to create swirls.
  • Place in the freezer for 30-60 minutes.
  • Enjoy! Tip: Ice-cream straight from the freezer may be too hard but you know the trick.
