Number of Servings: 12


    8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese (do not use low fat)
    2.5 cups fat free half and half
    3/4 cup Splenda
    2 tbsp vanilla
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1 cup canned, pitted, drained, sweet cherries


(Cooking time is Freezing time)

Whip Cream Cheese until fluffy.

Mix half and half with Splenda in small sauce pot over medium heat for about five minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent boiling.

Pour half of the warm mixture into bowl with cream cheese and beat. Add remaining warm mixture with vanilla and lemon juice. Beat. Strain, if desired.

Put in refrigerator until mixture is chilled.
Then freeze in ice cream machine or hand crank machine. During the last 2 minutes of freezing, add drained cherries.
Freeze time may be longer than normal due to the lower fat content. Will come to soft serve consistency, but will ripen to harder consistency with a few hours in the freezer.

Makes nearly one and a half quarts of ice cream.
Serving: 1/2 Cup

You may add 3/4 cup crushed graham crackers with the cherries.

Number of Servings: 12

    This was wonderful. The splenda leaves a bit of an aftertaste (it's just me, I'm sure) but it's still so yummy - 10/20/07
