Ice cream is a big part of dessert life in our house. I mean, if we run out, it’s cause for a small panic. Since we eat it often, I was glad to learn that Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. I’m feeding this to my family, so that’s super important to me. I went out of my way to get locally grown peaches to add to this dessert, so I’m also glad to know that all Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans.
Today I’m making pound cake and peaches sundaes. This dessert is so flavorful! Why didn’t I think to add basil to peaches and ice cream before? It is delicious!!
Just a few ingredients, along with the Breyers ice cream, make this whole yummy dessert!

Simply dice two fresh peaches.
Try not to eat them all before the dessert is ready. It’s not easy! LOL!
Add thinly sliced basil, fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of sugar to the peaches.
Slice pound cake to 1/4″ pieces. Here’s the recipe I used for this pound cake.
