Not as bad for you as you might think. Also quick because you're using frozen cherries! Please get the ones frozen WITHOUT sugar. The whole point of this is controlling how much sugar we feed our families. Plus it's tasty. Serve cold with your favorite meat or pastry or puddings, or serve piping hot over ice cream or fresh cake.

  • 2 lbs frozen cherries (sweet or sour, just make sure they're WITHOUT added sugar)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  3. Chill for several hours and serve ice cold, or serve warm. both are delicious.
