What would a birthday party be without ice cream? When it comes to birthday celebrations, ice cream is right up there in importance with the cake. They go hand-in-hand at my house.
Ice cream is always there to help us celebrate special occasions, and now it’s our turn to be there for ice cream. Breyers ice cream is celebrating a huge milestone birthday this year. 150 years! That’s pretty amazing, if you ask me.
In honor of their 150th birthday, Breyers partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price Stone, to create 12 ice cream recipes inspired by every month of the year.
Breyers Natural Vanilla is featured in all twelve recipes, giving families a way to enjoy the fresh taste of America’s #1 Vanilla Ice Cream all year long. Breyers Natural Vanilla is made with high quality ingredients like fresh cream, milk and sugar.
I recreated Chef Curtis Stone’s recipe for Spice Roasted Figs with Hazelnuts and Vanilla Ice Cream. Fresh figs are a seasonal treat you have got to try. They are so different in taste and texture from dried figs.
In this recipe, fresh figs are dipped in sugar and spice (and everything nice) then caramelized under the broiler. Warm figs are the perfect complement to Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream. This was my first time EVER eating fresh figs. I have to admit, I was a little doubtful about the figs at first, but this recipe totally turned me into a fresh fig fan. My husband and I loved this ice cream recipe, and I will definitely make it again.
Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably-farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans. Plus, Breyers only sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*.
