One of my favorite parts of Summer is the abundant fruit available at the grocery. Every week, I fill my cart with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, peaches….okay, pretty much all of it! The downside of Summer (in Texas anyway), is the abusive heat! What better way to combat that than by cooling off with a sweet treat!
My Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker gets a serious workout when the temperature outside spikes (proof here, here and here). It’s so freaking easy, and although my recipes aren’t low-fat, they are made with pure ingredients. It’s nice to take a break from preservatives every now and then.

This recipe makes about 7 cups, so 2-3 servings? I kid.
Not Really. We usually eat it right away, when it’s still soft and creamy.
Once frozen completely, it makes a great dessert for a Summer dinner party, fancied-up by serving in a wine glass. This method also allows me to stretch the number of servings by not looking like I’m scrimping on the portion size!
Regardless, we’re all scrapping the bottom of the glass for more! I think I’ll try this recipe with strawberries next. Or, maybe blueberries. No, I think mixed berry! What is your favorite Summertime sweet treat?
