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 mum would have ‘ice cream parties’ in her bedroom when my dad had to work the graveyard shift,” Lofaso says. “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.
Lofaso has partnered with Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream to create some recipes for all the family. Not only does it taste good, it’s also got those all-important feel-good credentials.
“The brand is now only using milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones and sustainably farmed vanilla beans,” says Lofaso.
Here are three of Lofaso’s favourite new ice cream creations. Start sharing delicious moments together with your family with these recipes. For more recipe inspiration and nutritional information, visit Breyers.com/recipes
