Ice cream has always an indulgent treat around here. It’s a family favorite dessert and one we take very seriously. When it comes to the ice cream we choose, we don’t mess around. It needs to taste good and be something we don’t have to compromise quality ingredients for great taste.
Thankfully we can feel good about serving Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream!
Breyers uses high quality ingredients in their ice cream and Breyers Natural Vanilla boasts the following which makes it a perfect fit for our family:
- Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*.
- Made with real vanilla from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans.
Breyers Natural Vanilla is made with cream, milk, sugar and sustainably farmed vanilla beans. There isn’t anything we can’t pronounce on the label. Just delicious, vanilla goodness. And the taste reflects this simplicity!
Breyers Natural Vanilla has been an important part of so many of our memorable family moments and could be a part of yours too. To help introduce you to Breyers Natural Vanilla, Breyers has teamed up with Chef Antonia Lofaso. Chef Lofaso has created some fun, family-friendly recipes featuring Natural Vanilla and I have recreated one of her delicious recipes at home for my family.
Chef Lofaso’s tropical ice cream sandwich recipe needs only two additional ingredients and it makes a super delicious summer treat for the whole family.
Tropical Ice Cream Sandwich RecipePrint
- 2 1/4-inch thick fresh pineapple slices
- 1 cup Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2 Tbsp. toasted flaked coconut
- Grill pineapple slices over low to medium heat for 90 seconds on each side. Allow to cool briefly.
- Sandwich the softened Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream between the 2 grilled slices of pineapple. Coat sides in toasted coconut. Slice in half and serve
Wow, this was delicious! I admit I was skeptical but the pineapple was seriously the best compliment to vanilla ice cream and toasted coconut that I have ever tasted. I did have a bit of trouble with the ice cream melting a bit quickly – this just sort of made it more fun to eat. But if you don’t want sticky fingers you can make it into more of a sundae by putting a scoop of ice cream on top of a slice of grilled pineapple and top it with toasted coconut. The bottom line is that you MUST try this amazing combination!
