Easy Simple Sweet... A Summertime Dessert Without the Work!

Monday, August 17, 2015

I consider myself a connoisseur when it comes to desserts... I'm the first one to volunteer to bring a sweet treat to a dinner party, the guest at restaurants who plans their meals around the dessert options, and I can't lie, birthdays make me REALLY happy just because dessert is almost always guaranteed to be served.

Today I'm here partnering up with two of my favorite brands in the name of the perfect, easy, simple, and sweet summertime dessert... because let's face it, summer should be spent outdoors, going on adventures, and savoring the warm temperatures, not confined to the kitchen! 

Last week, I visited my local Publix store to stock up on my goodies and took home two all-American favorites... Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake and Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream. And I'm here today to show how you can grab these treats out of your freezer, assemble them into perfectly pint sized desserts for your family and friends, and savor away.

Important nutrition facts that many of you may already know is that both items are made with real, quality ingredients, and Breyers includes fresh cream, sugar, and milk so you can rest assured you know what you're giving to the ones you care about most. 

I started with the All Butter Pound Cake and Natural Vanilla Ice Cream and then added a hefty helping of fresh strawberries and whipped cream, then layered them in miniature mason jars to make personal strawberry pound cakes... a southern staple around our house during summertime. They were easy to assemble, bite size treats that you can leave in the freezer until ready to eat, and made for a happy Sunday evening cookout with our friends last night. 

Hosting a party, shower, or summer event? These make the BEST special dessert options, that are easy to make ahead of time and then serve whenever you need! 

Need other ideas? You could add in some other flavors of Breyers ice cream, mix in bananas and nuts and you have yourself homemade banana splits... basically, these staples give you the opportunity to get creative in the kitchen and make it fun!

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, Sara Lee®, and Breyers® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #EasySimpleSweet http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
