Raspberry Ripple for Foodie Friday and Pink Saturday


From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a lovely summer dessert that's assembled rather than made. It's perfect for a backyard wedding or a graduation party. I've used raspberries in this version but strawberries would be lovely as well. To make the ripple you'll need six cups of vanilla ice cream, a pint of heavy cream, two cups of raspberries and some patience. It is really simple to do. You'll need to begin this the day before it is to be served. I molded my version in a loaf pan and slice it for serving. If you prefer, an easier option is to scoop the ice cream into cups or cones for serving. Once the berries have been pureed, taste them for sweetness and adjust to taste with sugar. If you have framboise in the house a tablespoon or two would certainly do no harm. I like this dessert for its simple goodness. Your guests will think you've fussed for them and they'll love the way it tastes.

Raspberry Ripple...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh raspberries
Sugar to taste
Framboise (optional)
2 cups heavy cream
1-1/2 quarts vanilla ice cream
Whole raspberries for garnish

Directions:
1) Line a 9 x 5-inch bread pan with foil.
2) Puree raspberries in a blender. Pour into a medium bowl and set aside. Add sugar to taste. Add framboise if using. Move ice cream from freezer to refrigerator and allow to soften (not run). Beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold cream into the raspberry puree. Pour mixture into a metal pan; place in freezer and chill until mixture thickens and begins to freeze. Do not allow to freeze through. When half frozen remove from freezer and beat well.
3) Spoon mounds of softened ice cream into prepared pan. Spoon raspberry mixture between mounds of vanilla ice cream. Use a sharp knife to swirl layers.
4) Transfer pan to freezer. Freeze for about 2 hours. When half frozen smooth edges of ice cream, then freeze overnight. When ready to serve cut into slices. Garnish with whole raspberries if desired. Yield: 8 to 10 servings.


I'm sending this recipe to Michael at Designs By Gollum for Foodie Friday, the event she sponsors.

I'm also sending it to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her Pink Saturday Event.

Thank you for another great ice-cream-maker-free cold dessert recipe! Can't wait to try it. I made the sherbet this week but used a mix of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries - for my taste, the sugar could have been much less, but the berries were probably very sweet. I mixed in some lemon and lime juices when the sherbet was starting to solidify, and it was delicious! We're still enjoying it.

Thanks Mary!

Mary, have I told you how much easier you've made my life? I can always count on you to provide recipes that tantalize my taste buds.

I'm having company this weekend and for Saturday night's dinner I'll be serving the Tuscan Pork from yesterday, along with Parmesan potatoes, roasted garlic asparagus, and now you've provided a dessert that will top off the meal perfectly!

Jamie said...

Julia said...

Hi....and a H.P.S.!...to you too...Love the rapsberry desert...I looove raspberries, and I think the flavour is much nicer than strawberries, I dont know why strawberries seem to get used more..it's prob because they are cheaper.xx

Nicole Feliciano said...

Lovely picture. Thanks so much for linking up. I'll be back to check out your creations.

KBeau said...

Megan said...

This sounds like a perfect dessert. I love raspberry and if you add a chocolate cookie to this and I'd be a happy camper. And a tbsp or two of framoise would just make me that much happier! ;)
