With the summer nights now drawing in, this can only mean one thing… winter is coming. Say hello to cosy pub meals and big roaring fires or brisk beach walks wrapped up in thick coats and scarves. However, whilst the temperatures may be dropping, one thing will always stay the same, customers desire for ice cream on a dessert menu.

As much as we love summer here at New Forest Ice Cream, we always look forward to being able to enjoy our many flavours which are ideal for the crisper months. Restaurants and food outlets can either work our ice cream into different dessert options or have it on their list of scoop ice creams to enjoy on their own.

First up we have Spiced Fruit Shortcake scoop ice cream. This is a delicious brandy-based ice cream containing sultanas, cinnamon, mixed spice and orange peel. The warming, spiced ice cream works perfectly alongside a warm dessert such as a treacle tart or a warming pear crumble. Alternatively, serve as an alcoholic milkshake. Add two scoops of the tasty ice cream into a blender, along with a splash of milk and a good slug of brandy. Blend until smooth and pour into a tall glass and top with some whipped cream.

Next up, we have Chocolate Orange scoop ice cream. This a great combination of chocolate and orange dairy ice cream with a zesty orange ripple running through. This classic combination is perfect for bonfire night and Halloween. Why not serve a spooky treat by adding a scoop of ice cream and adding some liquorice laces and chocolate raisins to create a spider themed dessert for a fun twist to a children’s’ menu.

All of us at New Forest Ice Cream also love putting a slight twist on a classic accompaniment to a sweet treat. Instead of your restaurant or pub serving a well-loved scoop of vanilla ice cream along side a crumble or brownie, why not try our Malted Milkshake! This three-star Great Taste Award winner, makes it the ultimate serve along-side the pudding of choice.

Whichever way your customers may enjoy our luxury dairy ice cream, make sure to mention us in any social media posts or send us your yummy recipe ideas to be featured in future blogs
