Making Sweet Memories, One Scoop at a Time

Creating Ice Cream Recipes for Special Occations


 

 

Crowding around a table eating ice cream is one of the tastiest ways to enjoy family time. Parent, chef and cookbook author Antonia Lofaso knows this very well and has created delectable ice cream desserts, such as her Pound Cake and Peaches Sundae, that bring back fond childhood memories to inspire families to take a step back and appreciate every moment.

“My mom would have ‘ice cream parties’ in her bedroom when my dad had to work the graveyard shift,” Lofaso said. “She would snuggle us in her bed and give us toasted pound cake with ice cream and fresh fruit. My dad would come home to find us all asleep in one bed with scattered bowls and spoons everywhere.”

Special family moments are even sweeter when the recipes are served with real, high-quality ingredients everyone can feel good about.

“On top of the great taste of Breyers Natural Vanilla, families can feel good about enjoying a scoop of Breyers,” said Lofaso, who partnered with Breyers to create these recipes. “The brand is now only using milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*, and sustainably farmed vanilla beans.”
