Ice cream with berry sauce

I recently had a dessert at a baby shower. It was part ice-cream, part whipped cream with crunchy nuts. I liked the idea of creating my frozen dessert. I used it as an inspiration and whipped (literally) my own concoction.

There are fresh berries in the market so I created a sauce to top the ice-cream dessert. The tartness of the berries goes well with the mild sweetness of the ice-cream. And it is super simple, quick and yet delicious dish.

Ingredients:
For Ice-cream base:
1 cup Ice-cream
1 cup Whipped Cream
1/2 cup Milk
1 tspoon Sugar
1 tspoon Honey

For Berry sauce:
1/2 pack of Mixed Berries (you can use frozen berries too)
1/2 tspoon Sugar
1/2 tspoon honey
1 tspoon water
pinch of Cinnamon

Method:
Ice-cream:
Mix all the ingredients well till it mixes together as a smooth paste
Freeze it in the freezer for atleast 2-3 hours till it sets well.

Berry sauce:
Chop the berries.
Heat a pan, add sugar, water, honey and cinnamon.
When it starts boiling, add the berries and cook it together for 3-4 minutes till the berries are soft but not gooey.Serve the ice-cream in a bowl/dessert plate and top it off with hot berry sauce.

  3. Durga - I'm glad you liked it. If you have a sauce or topping, it's better to use a complimentary flavor or a mild one. Vanilla works well. I used rum'n raisins.

    Anon - thanks. We'll have to do this again. :)
