Ice Cream Social Network

Ice Cream Social Network

What’s a better excuse to socialize than a party?  So you’re throwing an ice cream social as an ode to the Oscar-nominated film, The Social Network.  With moments of sweetness, tanginess and a dash of spice for added drama, the Ice Cream Social Network is the perfect toast to the movie.  Now that’s Oscar-worthy.

Ingredients:

1 C. frozen blueberries, thawed

1 Tbsp. orange zest

1 ¼ C. heavy cream

¼ C. + 2 Tbsp. raw sugar

¼ tsp. sea salt

¼ tsp. cinnamon

Juice of freshly squeezed orange

2 Tbsp. spiced rum

Directions:

Mash thawed berries with orange zest and set aside.

Bring cream, sugar, salt and cinnamon to a simmer on stove until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat and place in bowl.  Add orange juice and rum.  Place in fridge until chilled. Once chilled, place into ice cream maker and prepare according to manufacturer directions.

Freezes well, lasts one week.

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO: A rule of thumb for healthy eating is eating in moderation.  And once in a while, it’s good to indulge, especially on homemade sweets that you’re 100% sure are free of preservatives and refined sugar.
