Tiffy’s Tips

  • To save time pre-scoop ice cream and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. When time to serve simply place ice cream scoops in individual serving dishes. 
  • Strawberries are a great addition to the berry mix. 
  • Use a sugar substitution like Truvia or Stevia. Agave is a great substitution for honey.
