With Reddi-wip 13 oz. Original Whipped Topping and COFFEE-MATE® Italian Sweet Cream Liquid Coffee Creamer 32 oz., it couldn’t be easier to make a cool treat to enjoy all summer long!
My kids and I love to spend time together in kitchen, making all sorts of dishes and treats. But come summer, who wants to hang out in the kitchen for hours? Not us!
So I’m loving this Sweet Cream and Mixed Berry ice cream recipe for a fun summer treat that is super simple to whip up, thanks to COFFEE-MATE® Italian Sweet Cream Liquid Coffee Creamer. You guys know I love a good cooking hack, and I use COFFEE-MATE® in recipes all the time to add a boost of flavor and creamy texture in an instant.
RECIPE FOR SWEET CREAM AND MIXED BERRY ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
For this ice cream, get out the sturdy mixer and blend it up. It’s as simple as tossing the ingredients in (heavy whipping cream, COFFEE-MATE®, mascarpone cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and a hint of vanilla), mixing until smooth, sprinkling in the berries, and popping it all into the freezer.
While you wait for the freezer to do its thing, you can bake up the shortbread cookies. Shortbread, in general, is one of the easiest things you can bake, which is why I chose it for this simple summer treat. The buttery flavor compliments the sweet berry ice cream perfectly.
Feel free to eat a couple cookies along the way!
Once the cookies have cooled, assemble the yummy sammy’s and finish off with a dollop of Reddi-wip. That’s real cream right there! I’ve been known to top overnight oats, fruit, and so much more with Reddi-wip. Add just a little, enjoy a lot!
