Lowfat Cherry Mint Ice Cream


I love mint chocolate chip ice cream, and I love cherry, so I thought I'd combine the two since mint is a major Michigan product. I wasn't sure if I wanted to mince the mint and put it right in the ice cream for textural reasons, but it was actually really good!
Next time I might put in whole leaves and pull them out at the end, or steep the mint in the cream for flavor, but it was good how it was!


Low Fat Cherry Mint Ice Cream


2 c. skim milk
1/4 c. non fat 1/2 and 1/2
1/2 c. nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/2 tsp. minced mint leaves
1/2 c. frozen black cherries, chopped
1/4 c. sugar or 2 tbsp. splenda sugar blend.


Mix all ingredients, add to ice cream maker and churn for 20 minutes.
