Mix the milk, cream and sugar in a pan and bring to the boil. Mix the cornflour and milk to make a “slurry” or paste.
Add the paste to the boiling liquid, take off the heat then add the cream cheese, whisking continuously.
Allow this mix to cool for 5 minutes, then add to an ice cream maker and churn until softly frozen.
Add the chopped cherries, and if it’s just for the adults, you can also add a little kirsch (to taste) then mix through.
Freeze until needed. You can add other seasonal berries, vanilla or even pistachios if you want to give it your own twist. Serve scooped in a bowl or glass with some fresh, chopped cherries.
