I am a firm believer in the idea that simple is better.  Simple, uncluttered living is the key to a low stress life.  Simple gifts are often the most meaningful.  And a simple ingredient list usually means a higher quality food product.  I am all about simple ingredients when it comes to our food.  I don’t want complicated chemical names or a bunch of numbers and symbols.  Simple ingredients just taste better.  When I got the chance to try out the new Turkey Hill Dairy all natural gelato I was intrigued!  I have never met a frozen dessert I didn’t like so this project was right up my alley!  To go along with my simply decadent gelato, I created a topping from my husband’s favorite ingredients: blueberries and bourbon!  This bourbon blueberry sauce was the perfect addition to the all natural vanilla gelato from Turkey Hill Dairy!

Bourbon Blueberry Sauce for Turkey Hill Gelato

With blueberry season coming up, I highly recommend you stock up while the price is cheap.  You could probably use frozen blueberries for this bourbon blueberry sauce but you might end up with a bit too much ‘juice’ as they thaw.  I definitely recommend a high quality bourbon, as well.  Don’t break the bank but don’t buy the cheapest one on the shelf either!  The simplicity of these flavors is the perfect topping for a simple vanilla gelato like Turkey Hill.

Turkey Hill Gelato and Bourbon Blueberry Sauce Recipe

Turkey Hill Dairy is the first major ice cream brand to offer an all natural gelato.  It is made with simple ingredients like milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and comes in 8 different flavors.  Choose from Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coffee Chip, Hazelnut, Mint Chocolate Chip, Peach Mango, Purely Vanilla or Sea Salted Caramel. Turkey Hill All Natural Gelato has less air than most ice cream, giving it a denser, richer texture. It is available at select retailers wherever Turkey Hill products are sold.  The texture of these gelatos is so creamy and smooth!  It was a huge hit in my house, both with and without the sauce!

While I definitely think this bourbon blueberry sauce recipe was a huge hit, you could certainly enjoy any of the Turkey Hill all natural gelatos right out of the container.  I found several varieties at the grocery store and they were a huge hit with the kids…even if they weren’t brave enough to try the sauce!

If you need more ideas on how to USE this bourbon blueberry sauce, you can also pour it over waffles or pancakes and it would be delicious as a topping to a savory grilled chicken breast or good cut of steak!
