Sweet Summer Delights

07/10/2011 19:10 ● Published by Anonymous

Making homemade ice cream for friends and family is a sweet way to celebrate summer — and it’s easier than you might think.

Ingrid Hoffmann, host of the Cooking Channel’s “Simply Delicioso” and “Delicioso” on Telefutura/Univision, uses Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk as a fool-proof base for these easy-to-make, tropically-inspired frozen treats. You don’t even need an ice cream maker — your freezer does the work.

To help you make your summer entertaining even more delightful, Ingrid has some helpful tips:

—Create easy homemade artisan ice cream made fresh with new flavor combinations using berries, lemon, fresh mint, espresso, honey, fresh herbs or spices. Try the recipe for Fresh Fruit Ice Cream or Pineapple and Chipotle Ice Pops for a cool summer treat.

—For beautiful desserts with little prep work, try layering ice cream between prepared short bread cookies for a gourmet inspired ice cream sandwich or cake. For a real crowd pleaser, create a topping bar where guests can select the ice cream toppings of their choice. You could also serve as ice pops by freezing the ice cream mixture in molds and inserting wooden craft sticks in the center.

—Instead of serving in a traditional bowl, make a bowl out of your favorite summer fruit. Take half of a small cantaloupe, mini watermelon or pineapple, and scoop out the flesh. Then cut a flat edge off the bottom of the skin to make it stable. Fill it with your ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce and add other fun toppings.
