We used to go to lunch with Dad every Sunday. I miss it, Jason misses it, Dad misses it. For the first time in many months, this Fathers Day we took him to lunch. It was so great – just Jason, my dad, my brother and me. We went to one of our favorite places and had a really nice time. I cannot wait until this is a regular Sunday thing again.
Until then, like I already said I am looking for any way to soothe Dad’s throat and give him food that tastes good. Most of the food I am giving him is good for him – fresh juice in the morning, fresh salads and plant based entrees that taste good and are satisfying to him. Other times, I give him things to make his throat feel good and bring a comforting smile – this time in a form of an ice cream sundae.
Sundaes with Dad.
It makes him smile, which makes me smile.
These sundaes are simple – made with light strawberry slow churned ice cream, blueberries and blueberry sauce. Fresh, frosty and flavorful.
fresh blueberry sauce
1 pint fresh blueberries
1/3 cup agave (sweetener of choice)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 – 1/2 cup water (as needed)
In saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients and cook down until a sauce forms (add water as necessary to thin). Allow to cool and transfer to blender, puree to smooth.
Smiles all around.
Dreyer’s® Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is churned slowly for all the rich & creamy taste of regular ice cream, but with half the fat and one-third fewer calories. Now that’s a reason to smile. Give a smile with Operation Smile:
For every ice cream smile captured in a photo and uploaded to Dreyer’s Facebook page, Slow Churned will donate $5 to Operation Smile. By the end of the summer, the goal is to give away more than 25,000 scoops of ice cream, capture 25,000 ice cream smiles and gift 500 surgeries/smiles to children in-need.
