Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream: Cherry Garcia, Heath Bar Crunch Ice Cream and Fresh Georgia Peach Ice Cream

This tastes really good! My husband loves Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream. Actually they have different flavors that you will go crazy with. This is addictive and really delicious. But be careful... this will really ruin our diet. Below are the recipes of Ben and Jerry's ice cream in different flavors.

1/4 cup shaved semi−sweet chocolate bars
1/4 cup fresh Bing cherries, halved and pitted (you may
use canned cherries, but be sure to drain the syrup)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk


1. Place the shaved chocolate flakes and the cherries in
separate bowls. Cover and refrigerate.
2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1
to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then
continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute
more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
3. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze
following the manufacturer’s instructions.
4. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is
done), add the chocolate and the cherries, then continue
freezing until the ice cream is ready.


Ben & Jerry's Heath Bar Crunch Ice Cream


4 Heath Bars
2 Cup Heavy or whipping cream
2 Large Eggs
1 Cup Whole milk
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Using a sharp knife, cut the candy bars into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks. You
should have about 1 cup. Place the chucks in a bowl, cover and freeze.
Whisk the egg in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1−2 minutes. Whisk in
the sugar, a little at a time, then continue to whisk until completely
blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream, milk, vanilla, and whisk to
blend. Transfer the mixture to ice cream maker and freeze following
manufacturer's instructions.

After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done) add the
candy, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

Variation: COFFEE HEATH BAR CRUNCH:
Omit vanilla and substitute 3T good quality freeze−dried coffee. Add 2 T
coffee with the cream and milk, and add the remaining 1 T coffee with the
candy. (after the ice cream stiffens).

Ben & Jerry's Fresh Georgia Peach Ice Cream
2 Cup Ripe peaches finely chopped
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Juice of lemon
2 Large Eggs
2 Cup Heavy or whipping cream
1 Cup Milk


The best way to capture the elusive flavor of summertime. Ben and Jerry
prefer small peaches because they have more flavor and less water than the
larger ones.

Combine the peaches, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and the lemon juice in a bowl.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring the mixture every 30 minutes.
Remove the peaches from the refrigerator and drain the juice into another
bowl. Return the peaches to the refrigerator. Whisk the eggs in a mixing
bowl until light and fluffy, 1−2 minutes. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup
sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended,
about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the
peach juice and blend. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze
following manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2
minutes before if is done) add the peaches, then continue freezing until the
ice cream is ready. Makes 1 generous quart.
