This frozen fruit dessert, aka Heiss und Eis, is such an easy and quick treat

More Hints for this Dessert ...
- Quantities for this fruit dessert do not have to be exact. Adjust as you wish. That's what makes this one of those easy dessert ideas that doesn't really need a cookbook. Scoop ice cream into serving dishes. Pour hot fruit sauce over top. Enjoy!
- Personally, a really good quality vanilla ice cream is best. To me, that's actually quite something, because I really don't like vanilla ice cream. Give me a chocolate ice cream any day. But for this "frozen fruit" dessert, vanilla's best.
- However, when using strawberries, nothing beats chocolate ice cream! I'm sure you'll come up with your own favorite combinations as well.
Heiss und Eis (pronounced 'hice and ice'), meaning Hot and Ice, is the actual German name for this treat.
I never knew its name as I was growing up.
For us it was just "ice cream and fruit sauce." Usually, the sauce is served hot over the ice cream. However, if you wish, you can let the sauce cool.
Oma's Frozen Fruit Dessert: Eis und Heiss ❤️
- 2 cups frozen fruit
- 2 cups juice, see Hints below
- 1 tbsp corn starch
- Ice cream - flavor of your choice - enough for 4 servings
- Put frozen fruit into saucepan. Cover with juice.
- Bring to simmer. Simmer until fruit is thawed and hot. Occasionally stir gently.
- Mix cornstarch with a little water. Slowly stir just enough into simmering fruit until it is the proper consistency - like a sauce.
- Add a little lemon juice and/or sugar if needed.
- Serve hot over ice cream. Serves 4.
- In the picture above, instead of a totally frozen fruit dessert, I used a 28 oz can of sliced peaches with its juice, ⅓ can frozen peach concentrate (to increase peach flavor), 1 cup frozen raspberries and 1 tbsp lime juice. Delicious and pretty.
- A strong flavored juice is preferable. Choose one that will complement the fruit. If the resulting sauce needs a bit more flavor, add some lemon juice and sweeten with sugar.
- The leftovers, served the next day, were totally red. The peaches had taken on the red color. So, for color contrast, make just before serving. The leftovers, heated in the microwave, tasted just as good, though.
