4 Ice Cream Float Recipes for July 4

Ah, there’s nothing like the cool and refreshing taste of a classic root beer float in the summer.Root Bear Float

It’s easy to make, too! Just chill a mug, load it up with scoops of Pierre’s French Vanilla Ice Cream, and pour ice cold root beer until the mug is ¾ of the way full.

Some float lovers sip the foamy, creamy goodness from a straw, while others use a spoon … but everyone smiles!

Root beer and vanilla ice cream aren’t the only staple ingredients for a fabulous float dessert. Try these cool combinations:

Cream Soda Float

Use cream soda or cream ale along with vanilla ice cream for a sweet twist on the original.

Orange Cream Pop Float

Looking for something different, but just as refreshing? Pour your favorite brand of orange soda (or as we call it, pop) over vanilla ice cream, and enjoy the flavor of one of your favorite childhood ice cream novelties.

Chocolate Cherry Cola Float

Who could resist this one … your favorite cherry cola over rich Chocolate Ice Cream?

Raspberry Sorbet and Ginger Beer Float

If there are any foodies in your family, step up your gourmet game with this creative concoction that pairs sweet, yet tangy, Raspberry Sorbet with spicy ginger beer. For a creamier consistency, use Pierre’s Raspberry Sherbet instead.

Ray’s Root Beer FloatRay's Root Beer Float

For an easy way to enjoy the taste of a root beer float this summer, try our Ray’s Root Beer Float™ Smooth Churned Light. Inspired by Pierre’s 40-year, veteran lead-flavor man, this flavor combines smooth vanilla ice cream with a root beer swirl. Best of all, Pierre’s Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream lineup offers half the fat and 30 percent fewer calories than regular ice cream.

Graduation parties made easy with ice cream

It’s cap-and-gown season! If you’re planning a party for your graduate, you know how challenging it can be to prepare a menu, stage the seating, decorate – and still have time to catch your breath and enjoy the festivities.

Consider Pierre’s your party planner. We’ll help make things simple – and so, so delicious – at your graduation gathering by enlisting the help of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and novelties.

Set Up a Sundae Bar

Let guests assemble their own unique creations. Serve a sampling of ice cream flavors – French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are perfect sundae-starters! Place bowls of your favorite toppings next to plastic cups and spoons, and let the dessert portion of the party manage itself! Get more tips for building the perfect sundae bar.

Serve Ice Cream Cakes and Pies

There’s no need to turn on the oven when it’s warm outside; whip up ice cream versions of your favorite cakes and pies instead. Simply spread layers of different ice cream flavors in a 9×13 pan, spring form pan or other serving dish, frost with light whipped topping and serve. Best of all, most ice cream cakes and pies can be prepared well ahead of time.spirit-of-america

Get creative with your combinations. We love to fill a store-bought chocolate cookie-crumb crust with Black Cherries & Chocolate Chunks Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt and drizzle it with yummy chocolate syrup. Or, try this recipe for All-American Ice Cream Pie using Pierre’s Spirit of America® Premium Ice Cream and fresh blueberries and strawberries.

Make Your Own Sundae Cups

Make a signature ice cream dessert in honor of your proud graduate. Find out his or her favorite flavors and make a batch of miniature sundaes using small serving bowls. Simply line up the bowls, fill each with a scoop or two of ice cream and toppings and voila! These treats look great, are easy to make and highlight the star of the party.

Build a Buffet of Ice Cream Novelties

For an even easier spin on setting up a sundae bar, simply fill serving bowls or dishes with ice and offer your guests a range of sundae cones, fudge pops, fruit pops, cream pops, ice cream sandwiches and more. Find out more reasons why you should stock up on ice cream novelties this summer.

Staff a Smoothie Station

For a fun spin on dessert, enlist the help of a trusted family member to be in charge of the blender. Provide cups and straws, and guests will select ingredients from serve-yourself bowls of fresh fruit – we suggest various berries, bananas and peaches. Your blender captain will mix each guest’s cup of fruit with ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet for easy, sippable goodness.

You can even make ice cream cocktails – for the guests ages 21 and over only, of course.

Bonus Tip: Try our perfect sherbet party punch recipe!

Love Peach Cobbler? Try This Peaches & Cream Dessert Recipe

There’s nothing like ripe, juicy peaches from the summer harvest. Even better is when those fresh peaches are baked into a classic peach cobbler. But why crank up the oven in the summer heat when you can prepare this cooler, easy-to-make ice cream version of peach cobbler instead?Pierre's Premium Peaches & Cream

You only need three ingredients to serve up a dessert the family will love – including our refreshing, seasonal delight, Pierre’s Premium Peaches & Cream Ice Cream.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1.5-quart containers of Pierre’s Premium Peaches & Cream Ice Cream
  • 2 packages of shortbread cookies
  • 1 tub of whipped topping

  1. Remove Peaches & Cream Ice Cream from the freezer 10 minutes before preparing dessert. Stir with a spoon or rubber spatula to help soften.
  2. Crumble 6-8 cookies and place half of the crumbs in bottom of a 9×13 pan or other serving dish.  Reserve remaining crumbs for topping.
  3. Place several large scoops of ice cream into pan to create the first layer, using spatula to smooth around.
  4. Place whole cookies on top of ice cream to create the second layer.
  5. Repeat the process until you have achieved desired number of layers.
  6. Spread whipped topping over entire pan for final layer, and decorate with reserved cookie crumbs.
  7. Cover the pan and freeze at least 30 minutes.
  8. When ready to serve, remove from freezer, slice and enjoy!

Just for fun:

  • Use broken-up scones in place of cookies.
  • Add fresh, thinly-sliced peaches or chunks of well-drained canned peaches before adding whipped topping.

Make Mardi Gras “Low Fat” Tuesday This Year

Pierre's Better For You Treats for Low Fat TuesdayHave you bounced back from indulging over the holidays? If so, be warned: Mardi Gras is right around the corner on March 4, and with it comes parties and high-calorie foods like King Cake and Pączkis which help the event live up to its translation of “Fat Tuesday”.

Sure, there are parties and gatherings, but you don’t have to give in to temptation. Join Pierre’s as we reclaim Mardi Gras as “Low Fat Tuesday”, a fun, flavorable celebration of making better choices. After all, living well is hard work, and it’s okay to reward yourself with irresistible ice creams and frozen treats … this time, only better for you.

Use #LowFatTuesday on Twitter and share a healthier choice you are making this year. Maybe you’re putting that new gym membership to good use. Perhaps you’re going lighter on the salt or are drinking more water. Are you walking with your kids after dinner, or with your co-workers at lunch? Or maybe you’re simply selecting better-for-your choices at the grocery store. Whatever you’re doing, let @pierrestweets know!

At Pierre’s, we believe that everybody deserves a treat and are proud to offer a range of lighter alternatives. Our Sorbet is naturally fat free and bursting with flavor. Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream trims the fat – half the fat compared to regular ice cream – to be exact. Made with Splenda®, our delicious Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream offers amazing flavors, even Moose Tracks®, with no added sugar.

In the mood for something tropical? From Margarita to Piña Colada to Mango, ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet is made with real fruit and is naturally low in fat and cholesterol. Try our snack-size ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars for a quick treat on the go. And with the rich creaminess of Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt, you don’t have to say “no” to a treat; you can say “Yo!” instead.

All it takes is a simple substitution, and you can have your Pączkis, King Cake, or rather, a frozen treat, this Low Fat Tuesday, and eat it, too. We have the recipes to prove it!

Treat Yourself to Better Choices

Yovation Black Cherries  Chocolate ChunksWhether or not you made a resolution to eat better this year, Pierre’s offers many delicious options for you and your family to enjoy a delicious frozen treat without feeling guilty. After all, nothing should get in the way of enjoying your favorite ice cream! Here are some better-for-you tips that may make it easier …

Portion Control:

Go for a smaller bowl. Don’t have a small bowl? A 6-8 fluid ounce cup works fine as well. Less real estate makes for smaller portions. An actual serving of ice cream is equal to ½ cup. Not filling, you say … dress it up!

Fresh Toppings:

Everyone enjoys a hot fudge sundae every now and then, but why not lighten your dish up with fresh fruits like bananas, coconut or strawberries. Don’t forget to add some crunch with unsalted raw almonds, pecans or walnuts.

There’s something for everyone:

Pierre’s offers lighter, reduced fat, fat free and no sugar added frozen treat options in a variety of flavors … so many, in fact, the fun part is deciding which Pierre’s item is your favorite.

    • ¡Hola Fruta! Fruit Bars are made with real fruit and feature only 50-56 calories per bar. Each fun, bold and delicious flavor offers a good source of Vitamin C.
