Cherry Chip Ice Cream

This was good. It wasn't overly cherry, but had a pleasant cherry taste. If you want it cherrier (is that a word?), you could add more cherries, or more cherry extract. I had the extract on hand to use in shakes, but you could probably leave it out and add more cherries if you wanted.

Cherry Chip Ice Cream

1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 Tablespoon sugar free vanilla pudding powder
1/4 teaspoon imitation cherry extract
1 packet Stevia or Splenda
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup frozen red tart (pie) cherries
1 Tablespoon grain-sweetened or dark chocolate chips

1. With your immersion blender, blend everything except for the cherries and chocolate chips. Pour into a freezer safe bowl.

2. Puree the cherries separately, then add them to the cottage cheese mixture and blend thoroughly with your immersion blender.

3. Put the lid on the bowl, place in the freezer and freeze for at least 2 and a half hours.
