Hot Love Raspberry Dessert

Serves 4

This recipe is so easy it’s hard to believe how wonderfully the tastes blend together with so little effort. You can play with the basic amounts of each ingredient but should know that you don’t need a lot of raspberry sauce. I’ve recently found small meringues at my local food store and have topped each cup with a few broken meringue pieces. Serve this in coffee cups for a fun, easy presentation.

2 cups fresh raspberries plus a few for decoration (you can use frozen raspberries when not in season)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups vanilla ice cream

Heat raspberries in a sauce pan, while stirring for 5 to 8 minutes.
Using a whisk or hand mixer, beat cream until whipped.
Serve one scoop of vanilla ice cream with hot raspberry sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.

  1. Firstly, Jessica I’m so jealous of your trip. Sounds amazing! Secondly, Kathrine your recipes look equally fantastic but they all include cream. Any Northern Italian recipes you can share that are dairy-free for those of us w/ allergies?


  2. Dear Marcy. You are so right and I had not even noticed. I rarely indulge in cream but somehow all these recipes make use of it. Thank you for pointing it out and I will look at a few more recipes from home that are on the leaner side. One of my favorites is a risotto which becomes creamy when you use arborio or carnaroli rice. And this time a year you can pair the rice with any type of vegetables including fava beans, peas, kale or collard greens, tomatoes and beets. Thank you for commenting.
