Irish Cream and Pierre’s Ice Cream

Creamy Coffee DelightOne of the best things about celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is the food! We challenged ourselves to see what Irish-inspired desserts we could come up with in the spirit of the holiday. Here are some you may enjoy inspired by Irish cream …

Pierre’s Signature Mocha Mud Pie blends indulgent chocolate ice cream and coffee ice cream with chocolate cream cookies and ribbons of thick fudge, making it a delicious complement to an Irish cream.

Serve a scoop of Mocha Mud Pie in a coffee cup or mug and splash with your favorite Irish cream liquor. For those under 21, substitute with a drizzle of non-alcoholic Irish Cream coffee syrup.

Irish cream syrup also makes yummy ice cream sodas. Mix syrup and chilled seltzer water in a glass to taste, leaving enough room for a scoop of Mocha Mud Pie, or maybe Chocolate, Coffee or Smooth Churned Espresso Chip.

Substitute Pierre’s French Vanilla Premium Ice Cream or Signature Exquisite Vanilla for whipped cream when making Irish coffee. For an alcohol-free version, use instant coffee, hot chocolate powder and Irish cream syrup … mixing to taste.

Ice cream in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day, created to honor Ireland’s patron saint, is also a fun and festive celebration of Irish culture and food! While there is no historical proof as to whether or not St. Patrick ever enjoyed a dish of ice cream, you will most certainly find ice cream on the Emerald Isle.

Emerald Necklace Ice Cream ConeWith that in mind, we picked out a few fun flavors in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!

Emerald Necklace:  While there’s no place on Earth quite like the Emerald Isle, the same can be said about our local natural gem … Cleveland Metroparks! Pierre’s Emerald Necklace Premium Ice Cream pays tribute to our hometown park system and celebrates the great outdoors!

Mint Chocolate Chip:  Ireland is a cool place to experience … kind of like a bowl of Pierre’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Lime Sherbet:  Like snakes, lime groves are not to be found in Ireland. However, like Irish culture, Pierre’s Lime Pure Fruit Sherbet and ¡Hola Fruta! Margarita Pure Fruit Sherbet are bold and full of flavor.

Rainbow Sherbet: Legend says that at the end of a rainbow is a leprechaun’s pot of gold. Perhaps that’s true, but a pot of Pierre’s Rainbow Sherbet would be just as nice as far as we’re concerned.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream Brownie Bars Recipe

Hand-dipped strawberries are a classic Valentine’s Day treat, but you can enjoy our seasonal Pierre’s Premium Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream flavor through May. Still, there’s just something so romantic about that decadent pairing of rich chocolate and strawberries, we couldn’t help but put some thought – and some love – into this easy-to-make Valentine-themed dessert idea.Chocolate Covered Strawberry Premium Ice Cream

This layered dessert is elegant enough for a dinner party but so simple to make you might keep a pan of it in your freezer at all times.

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite brownie mix (enough for two 8” square pans or one 9” x 13” pan)
  • 1 1.5 quart container of Pierre’s Premium Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Light or nonfat whipped topping
  • Strawberry sundae topping
  • Chocolate syrup

Prepare brownies as directed; let cool. Remove ice cream from freezer for 20 minutes so it’s easier to work with. Spread ice cream on top of the brownie layer until just below the top of the pan and freeze for at least an hour.

Remove pan from freezer and spread a layer of strawberry sundae topping on top of the ice cream. Then, cover with whipped topping. Freeze until it’s time to serve. Cut into squares, plate and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Resolution-Friendly Treats

Hola Strawberry and Pom Blue in  Dish

It’s that time of year again – New Year’s resolution time. What’s on your list this year? If you are like most of us, you’re probably aiming to make healthier choices in 2015. A recent study shows that losing weight is often the #1 New Year’s resolution of most Americans – beating out saving money and even falling in love!

But making better choices doesn’t necessarily mean giving up the treats you love. Through portion control and making sensible decisions at the store, you can have your ice cream and eat it, too. Here are some creative ways to enjoy better-for-you treats as you work toward fulfilling your resolutions this year.

Trim Added Sugar

Sweetened with Splenda® Brand sweetener Slender No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream is a better for you option that offers big, big taste. In fact, Slender is available in some of your favorite flavors of traditional ice cream – from Moose Tracks® to Butter Pecan to Mint Chocolate Chip — but with up to 30 percent less fat. Slender Vanilla makes a great sundae starter – or a guilt-free treat served on its own.

Probiotics + Frozen Yogurt = Delicious

Yovation Affogato Style!Thanks to recognition from the medical community, probiotics are popular these days. They are commonly available at grocery stores and pharmacies in the form of supplements — but where’s the fun in those? Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt offers a flavorful way to introduce probiotics to your diet. Note: Not all frozen yogurt brands are probiotic, but Yovation® specifically contains a superior probiotic culture, GanedenBC30®. Look for it on the label!

Forget those high calorie coffeehouse beverages. Add a cool and creamy twist to your coffee at home! Simply top a mug of black coffee or a shot or two of espresso with a scoop of Yovation® Vanilla Probiotic Frozen Yogurt and let this bold, creamy delight wake you up.

Raise the Bar on Snacks

Whether you need to quell a sweet tooth or want a delicious pick-me-up while you’re on the go, ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars are fresh-tasting, flavorful snacks on a stick that will help you stick with your resolution goals. Made with real fruit, these bars are naturally fat free and cholesterol free, and each flavor – Pomegranate Raspberry, Raspberry Blueberry and Strawberry – is under 60 calories and a good source of Vitamin C.

Looking for more real fruit fun? Try ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet – seven flavors of delicious, antioxidant-rich, low fat delights.

Treat Yourself and Still Trim the Fat

When you think of making better for you choices for dessert or for a snack, indulgent treats like Banana Cream Pie, Waffle Cone Sundae and Chocolate Fantasy might not come to mind. But our Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream brings the creamy richness of your favorite ice cream flavors with half the fat and 30 percent fewer calories. Delight in Peanut Butter Cup, Espresso Chip, French Vanilla and other great flavors while still keeping your promise to make better dessert choices.

Let’s Go Nuts About Buckeyes!

Nuts About BuckeyesThe college football season is about to come to an end. A championship is on the line and everyone is Nuts About Buckeyes! C’mon … it’s hard not to be a fan of delicious peanut butter swirled into Pierre’s famous Classic Vanilla Ice Cream with chocolate-covered peanut butter buckeye candies.

Enjoy a couple of scoops at your watch party while cheering on the Buckeyes during Monday night’s big game with family and friends, or curled up on the couch wrapped in your lucky blanket.

Below are a few winning plays we drew up for our roster of winning recipes. You can find other party ideas here on our blog.

Nuts About Buckeye Sundaes

Sundaes are as fun to make as they are to eat. Let your imagination run as wild as a ball carrier staring down a field of open daylight. Gather your favorite chocolate sauce or warm up a jar of hot fudge. Top your creation with salted cocktail peanuts, whipped cream and cherries (one is never enough)!

Ice Cream SandwichesIce Cream Sandwiches

Small scoops of ice cream between pairs of peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies are fast and easy to make, so you don’t miss a play!

Buckeye Ice Cream Pie

Ice cream pies are easy to make and delicious. You don’t need to have the talents of a champion pastry chef and, like sundaes, they can be as simple or creative as you like.

Start with a container of Nuts About Buckeyes and a pre-made chocolate cookie pie crust. Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. Don’t soften it too long, or else it will crystallize when it is refrozen. Spread the softened ice cream into the pie shell, cover with foil and return it to the freezer until ready to serve.

For fun, decorate the pie with your favorite ice cream sauces and toppings, like crumbled peanut butter cups or your favorite buckeye candies.
