I LOVE cherries and ice cream, especially in the summer, and I was so happy when I found this recipe for homemade cherry soda.

This was a smash hit at a birthday party this weekend! I skipped the whipped cream, because it was plenty creamy with the ice cream. I chose not to strain the puree, because we enjoyed the bits of cherry. I used natural vanilla bean ice cream, and it was perfect. Thanks, Lainey!
