A hot summer day truly calls for anything cold… especially ice cream! What could be better than a simple, yet elegant dessert that combines spiked fresh fruit with ice cream? Dessert simply doesn’t get easier or more fabulous than this recipe for vanilla bean ice cream with spiked berries. Such a simple but delicious way to elevate your favorite vanilla ice cream! Ripe, juicy berries spiked with amaretto and a touch of sweetener… I can’t think of anything more perfect and refreshing for a summertime treat! Amaretto is an almond-flavored liqueur, Italian in origin and produced throughout the world. I enjoy the smooth and distinctive flavor of Disaronno Originale Amaretto. Spike the berries with amaretto, drizzle a bit on top of the ice cream! So simple, so easy, and so good. Enjoy!
