If there’s two things I love in the summer it’s fresh, in-season cherries and ice cream. Particularly, I really love them together. There’s a local Philly ie cream shop that makes an amazing cherry ice cream that I always get, so I wanted to play off those flavors. So, I got to experimenting, and these Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Bites were born.

These little bites have a fresh cherry as the base, a delicious cheesecake ice cream layer, and then are finished off with a nilla wafer “crust.” Made in mini muffin liners (silicone ones make it easy to pop them out), they’re a great no-bake dessert option that’s quick, easy, and WW friendly. Hope you love these as much as we do!

Making Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Bites

These are a breeze to make since there’s no baking involved. First, you’ll want to cut and put your cherries. Since you don’t need a ton of them, I just do it by hand – slice around the middle of the cherry, twist to open it, and pop out the put. Then put half a cherry in each cupcake liner, cut side down so it’s flat. Set aside while you mix up your filling, which consists of:

  • Fat free sugar free cheesecake instant pudding mix
  • 2% milk, which you’ll use to mix up and set the pudding
  • Fat free cool whip, which you’ll whip into the mixture to make it nice and fluffy
  • Nonfat greek yogurt, which adds a bit of protein as well as the tangy flavor you expect from cheesecake

Mix up the filling and put about a tablespoon over each cherry in the cupcake liners, patting them down so the filling fully covers the cherry. Then, top each one with a nilla wafer and freeze. I like to make these all on a cutting board so I can easily put them all in the freezer at once. Let freeze for at least 5-6 hours, ideally overnight. Then, remove from molds and store in the freezer in an airtight container or bag. Enjoy!
