Sweet Cheat


We called this one a “sweet cheat” because it was so easy, we felt like we were cheating. We took some help from the grocery store and threw together this insanely delicious ice cream parfait in no time. I think this one is going to be a new favorite at Martin Family Style. Also, the possibilities are endless with this concept!


The ingredients for this sweet cheat are so simple. For the whipped cream, you will need heavy whipping cream, some powdered sugar and some good vanilla. For the rest, we used vanilla ice cream, fresh berries and a store bought caramel cookie bar (carmelita bar from Whole Foods)- but you can get really creative with this one and use any of your favorite sweets.


To start, set out a gallon of your favorite ice cream to soften a bit. Whatever you do, DO NOT put the ice cream in the microwave! I have made this epic mistake….it gives the ice cream a weird texture when it refreezes, so be patient and just set it out while you chop the berries.


Chop up some of your favorite berries. We used strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, but you can use anything you like.


When the ice cream has softened a bit, place it in a large mixing bowl. Add in the berries and gently fold them in.


Cover the ice cream and berry mixture with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least an hour before serving.


 While the ice cream is in the freezer, you can make the whipped cream by adding the heaving whipping cream to a large bowl. You want to make sure the whipping cream is really really cold, this will ensure that the whipped cream turns out nice and light.


Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla. It is really important to use quality vanilla on this one because there are so few ingredients so the flavor will really come through.


Whip the cream using a hand mixer until there are soft peaks. You could also use a stand mixer if you have one. Place the whipped cream in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.


 After the ice cream has had time to refreeze (at least 1 hour) pull it out and you are ready to assemble the parfaits.


Scoop some of the ice cream and berry mixture into a glass and top with the fresh whipped cream. We crumbled on a little store bought caramel cookie bar, but you can skip that or use any of your favorite store bought brownie or cookie.
