Mascarpone is known as a go-to ingredient in fabulous Italian desserts. Tiramisu is the classic example but it’s also a fabulous accompaniment for fresh strawberries and other summer fruits. Mascarpone has a smooth and delicate texture and a sweet, light flavor – the perfect summer dessert cheese! Whipping up a quick and scrumptious berries and cream dessert is easy with Il Villaggio Mascarpone – summer sweats with a delicious Italian twist.
Try it with ice cream for a cool summer delight. Just mix with vanilla ice cream, or try your hand at making a homemade, heavy cream-based ice cream. You can even mix it in with your favorite whipped cream for an especially easy treat. Mix in some fresh, ripe strawberries. For added sweetness, you can soak the fruit in a bit of sugar. For added ease, use frozen mixed vegetables – just thaw in water with a dash of honey.
Just use a hand mixer to blend everything together. A ratio of about twice as much cream to cheese – four ounces to eight ounces is a great start and should provide enough for about four servings. Need extra flare? Just add chocolate shavings on top!
