Did you know that Vanilla was the first flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? The brand may be known for their other more memorable flavors, but plain ol’ Vanilla is what got Ben & Jerry’s started. It’s received many awards and accolades over the years, and just happens to be my favorite, because it’s so yummy and goes well with everything!
Plus, Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream is made with fresh milk from Vermont Family Farmers and Fair Trade vanilla beans. Fair Trade means that farmers in developing countries are paid a fair price for their harvest, which allows them to earn a better income. Good to know.
Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream is the perfect compliment to just about any dessert, but it’s perfect with a holiday pie! My neighbor baked a delicious pecan pie for us for Thanksgiving, and adding a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s made it complete. The combination of the cold ice cream and the warm pie? Appropriate that the dessert plate has clouds on it, because it was heavenly. I also love this ice cream with apple pie, chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake… I could go on and on. For something a little more indulgent for the adults… if you have just a little bit of vanilla ice cream left in the container – not enough for a full serving – let it melt and a little vanilla-infused vodka and chocolate liqueur to make a rich and creamy chocolate martini. Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream is also wonderful by itself, of course!
