Strawberry Peach Gelato

 

For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the foundation, and it’s something that touches so many of us.

So of course, when the note came in again this year asking if I’d Pink Up my blog, I said yes.

This year, I went cold and sweet, and actually pretty healthy.  Strawberry Peach Gelato.

photo-dbrAll super fresh ingredients, not too much sugar (really, very little per serving!), and a touch of cream.  Throw it in your ice cream maker and reap the rewards in no time at all. In fact, it’s so quick and easy, I made it on my Daytime Blue Ridge segment last week, so if you’d like to watch that to see how it’s done, just click though here! The strawberry and peach are perfect partners, and with both being so abundant around the country, NOW is the time to make it!

1000 Cooks for the Cure

Now, wouldn’t this be an ideal recipe to include in a Pink Party of your own?

Cook for the Cure® Presented by KitchenAid®KitchenAid’s 1000 Cooks for the Cure is recruiting readers and friends like YOU to host a little (or big) get-together between July 18th and 27th to raise money for the cause.  Register online at their site, then have a backyard BBQ with family, or host an ice cream party for the neighborhood.  Just collect donations, then send it in.  Think of all the good that could do!  You can get ALL of the details online at the Cook For The Cure Site.

I just read that every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.  Every 13 minutes.  That’s staggering, isn’t it?  And someone is diagnosed every 2 minutes?  Baffling.  Perhaps the amount we raise collectively will change those numbers.  Even if it changes to every 15 minutes and every 5 minutes…isn’t that MUCH better?

So, let’s do what we can, while we can.  Even if it’s just pink ice cream and a yard full of happy neighbors with a few bucks.

I hope you’ll join us!

The Giveaway

Standalone_1175X1290[1]KitchenAid is so hopeful that we will reach the goal of 1000 Cooks this year that they are offering one of YOU a brand new Raspberry Ice KitchenAid Mixer.  It is gorgeous, and works like a madman – I should know, I own one myself!

if you would like to win, just follow the rules below, and please – share this post!  It’s really a great cause and  I would love for us to make a difference.
