We decided to combine two of summer’s best desserts – cobbler and ice cream – into one mind-blowingly fantastic recipe. While I love a hot cobbler loaded with fresh berries, nothing quite says summer like enjoying an ice cream cone on a 80 degree night.  Combining the two leaves you with the best of both worlds – and we mean the BEST.

Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream

Skip the ice cream parlor and make your own ice cream. It’s way less complicated than you’d think, especially when you have an ice cream maker at home.

A simple mixture of fresh blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, half and half, and heavy cream makes up this delicious ice cream. And the best part? You know those yummy spice cookies you sometimes get on airplanes? Yep, the Test Kitchen decided to add those to the mixture – and sprinkle even more on top.

Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream

Not to toot our own horn, but… the Test Kitchen deserves a standing ovation for this one. The combination of fresh, tangy blueberries and the spicy, crunchy cookies is reminiscent of classic cobbler flavors and will have you craving scoop after scoop. If you thought you had your favourite ice cream flavour set in stone, think again.

The bright purple ice cream disappeared at our tasting panel and we guarantee it will disappear from your bowl or cone in record time. Do yourself a favour and make this ice cream. It’s sure to become a new summer tradition.

Spring is the unofficial start of salad season in my world. Rising temps means eating less heavy, creamy soups and more fresh fruits and vegetables – something this Brussels sprouts and berries salad has plenty of.

 

 

 

 

 

 

While I love a good salad, I get frustrated when my greens go bad. Who else has has bought baby spinach, romaine lettuce, or a bag of spring mix at the store only to open it a few days later and it’s spoiled? Not only are you wasting food, it’s a bummer when you can’t make that perfect salad you crave.

That’s where Brussels sprouts come in. If you haven’t tried using Brussels sprouts to replace your go-to greens in a salad, now is the time. Not only are shaved Brussels sprouts extremely filling and add tons of texture to any salad creation, they don’t spoil as quickly. You can easily shred a big batch of Brussels sprouts using your Hamilton Beach® food processor over the weekend and store them in the fridge for salads during the week.

For this salad, we put a twist on Brussels sprouts. We took them  them out of the cold-weather box some people place them in and dressed them for spring. Instead of topping our salad with fall favorites like sweet potatoes, cranberries, and goat cheese we freshened things up with bright, seasonal berries.

Using a food processor fitted with the slicing disc, slice Brussels sprouts. In a serving bowl, top the shaved Brussels sprouts with strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and sliced almonds.

We topped the salad with a homemade honey poppyseed vinaigrette that we whipped up in our Hamilton Beach® single-serve blender.

The plump, sweet fruit perfectly complement the crunchy Brussels sprouts. Serve this beautiful spring salad at a bridal shower or for brunch. Or throw it together when you have plenty of seasonal fruit in the fridge. It’s truly salad goals.

During the spring and summer months, the last thing I want to do is heat up the house turning on the oven. While I love baking, I’m a big fan of the no-bake desserts. You can find plenty circulating in magazines, on Instagram, and on Pinterest this time of year. But this lemon blueberry icebox cake is worth the bookmark.

Lemon Blueberry Icebox Cake

First, make some fresh whipped cream by beating heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla for about 2 to 3 minutes with your Hamilton Beach hand mixer. When soft peaks form, cover and refrigerate. You could certainly use store-bought whipped cream but since we skipped preheating the oven, we figured we had a little time to spare.

Next, beat cream cheese and sugar for about a minute until the mixture is creamy. Then add lemon curd and continue beating until well blended. Stir two cups of whipped cream into the lemon curd mixture and reserve the rest.

Now it’s time to assemble your “cake.” In the bottom of a 13X9 baking dish spread the lemon curd/whipped cream mixture. Layer ginger snap cookies on top of the lemon mixture in a single layer. Next, add a heavy-handed layer of fresh blueberries. Top with the remaining whipped cream and refrigerate.

In the refrigerator the ingredients transform into what we know as icebox cake. The cookies absorb some of the moisture from the lemon mixture and soften, creating a cake-like texture.

When the cookies are softened, remove the cake from the fridge and add toppings before serving. We topped ours with even more blueberries and lemon zest, but you could add a few extra gingersnaps, too.

Serve this no-bake cake at a bridal shower, kids’ birthday party, or summer cookout. While this cake may skip the “baking” is definitely doesn’t skip on flavour thanks to the plump, sweet blueberries and spicy gingersnaps. Leave the oven off and let your refrigerator do all the “baking” for you this summer.
