It wouldn’t be summer without ice cream! And since summer lasts for most of the year where we live, we eat a lot of ice cream!
Right now, Breyers is celebrating its 150th birthday and has partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price Stone, to create 12 recipes featuring Breyers Natural Vanilla, inspired by every month of the year, to give families a way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with Breyers all year long.
When I was a kid, though, ice cream was a big treat. My mom would buy Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream. I thought the vanilla bean pieces were the best thing ever, and it began my love of everything vanilla bean. As an adult, I love that all Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans. Also, Breyers only sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*
Breyers is all about simple and natural, and that’s what their August recipe, Spice Roasted Figs with Hazelnuts and Vanilla Ice Cream, is.
