Ingredients

  • 10 liquid ounces whipping cream
  • 1 pack (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 3/4 can (1 can = 14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 medium lemon -juice
  • 1 cup sour cherries (canned or fresh) - pitted and crushed or cut into halves
  • 1 1/2 cup sour cherry jam
  • 1 cup graham crackers or butter biscuits - coarsely crushed

Instructions

  • In a bowl, whip cream until firm peaks form. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, condensed milk, and lemon juice. Beat with electric mixer on high speed until it becomes smooth, light and frothy. Add the whipped cream and gently fold into the cream cheese mixture using spatula until well combined.
  • Transfer mixture in a freezer-safe container in three partitions adding jam, crushed cherries and biscuits/graham in between and on top.
  • Run a bread knife thru the mixture in a swirling and up and down motion to mix and create a marble effect.
  • Place cover on the container or use aluminum foil and place in freezer for at least 6 hours or until frozen.

Notes

I used 3 medium sized lemons because we like it a bit tangy but you can start with 1 lemon first and add more according to your preference.
Same with the condensed milk, try adding half of the measurement and adjust as desired.
You may replace the cherries with strawberries, blueberries or other fruits.
