Valentine’s Day: Enjoying Strawberry Ice Cream with Cocoa Powder and Ground Dried Strawberries.

Both strawberries and chocolate are considered aphrodisiacs.  So, what better than to combine them?

Ice Cream!

No, I didn’t make the ice cream, but I got it from a local home-made-quality source — it is hard to make the supermarket strawberry ice creams taste remotely “real”.  But these guys use real strawberry in their ice cream, and they treat their cows right.  I dipped into some of the dehydrated strawberries I made last summer.

Prep Time:  Assuming you already have dehydrated strawberries, 10 minutes.
Cook Time:  Nope.
Rest Time:  Not advised.
Serves one, each.

Valentines Day:  Ground Dehydrated Strawberries & Cocoa Powder on Strawberry Ice Cream

  • A couple scoops quality strawberry ice cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground dehydrated strawberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon unsweetened natural cocoa powder (dark, no additives)

I ground them in a coffee grinder.

Scoop out some ice cream, put it in a chilled bowl, then add the toppings.  Enjoy with your special someone.

    What a great idea, pimping your ice cream with fruit 🙂 I have to admit, I used shop-bought ice cream for our Valentine’s treats, but I didn’t have your wonderful dried strawberries.
    Thanks for bringing this along to Fiesta Friday 106 – it’s been a real treat!
