Cherry Ice Cream Pie Recipe
I love this! I discovered this recipe here. Instead of the almond flour and quinoa flakes I would use this GF flour blend (1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/6 cup tapioca starch, 1/3 cup potato starch, 1/2 tsp xanthan gum)

Cherry Ice Cream Pie Recipe ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4 cups sweet black cherries, pitted
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/3 cup amaretto
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 13.5-ounce can coconut milk (full
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup hazelnut milk (or other non-
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups Cherry Sauce (from recipe
1/2 cup semi-sweet dark chocolate,
shaved (or mini chips)
2/3 cup almond meal/flour
1/3 cup quinoa flakes
2 1/2 tablespoons buttery spread (or
1/4 cup maple syrup
Tiny pinch salt
Combine the quartered cherries, 1/4 cup agave, and amaretto in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a simmer, and then lower the heat to sustain a simmer for 10-20 minutes until the cherries soften and just begin to break down (stir occasionally). Taste for sweetness and add more agave if needed. Mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water, and then add to the cherries. Bring to a boil, stirring for just a moment, then remove from the heat and set aside 3/4 cup (for the ice cream) and put the rest in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a deep dish pie pan or 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper on the bottom.
Combine all of the crust ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Spread the sticky batter evenly over the parchment paper (this takes a bit of patience). Bake for 12-16 minutes until the crust is light gold and cooked through but still slightly soft. (Keep your eye on this as nut crusts burn easily.) After it has cooled a bit, place it in the freezer.
In a large saucepan, combine the coconut milk, agave, and hazelnut milk. Heat on medium-high and whisk frequently until it starts to bubble. Reduce heat and simmer for 3–5 minutes.
Add vanilla extract and 3/4 cup Cherry Sauce and chill in the refrigerator for several hours.
Puree the chilled ice cream mixture in a food processor and then pour it into an ice cream maker (use according to the manufacturer’s instructions). Do not over-churn the ice cream; once it is the texture of soft-serve add the chocolate (allow it to mix in), and then transfer it to the prepared crust and chill in the freezer.
Once the pie is firm, serve slices with cherry sauce poured over the top and enjoy!
