Wyman’s of Maine fruit makes a great addition for holiday desserts!

Wyman’s of Maine was founded in 1874, by Jasper Wyman of a family-owned company that has a heritage of leadership in growing and marketing wild blueberries. Over many generations, they have perfected the science of freezing fresh fruit to maintain exceptional flavor and nutritional benefits without having that expensive, going bad quickly experience.
I love Wyman’s of Maine for adding fresh fruit without having the waste of fresh fruit going back before I can use it. Wyman’s fruit comes pre-packed with a wide variety of fruit and mixed fruit options. Last time I worked with Wyman’s I created a delicious blueberry cheesecake ice cream and this time I am creating a delicious recipe with their plump strawberries!
I decided on making two different recipes that essentially go hand in hand with each other. Strawberries are a fruit that is great all year long. For Thanksgiving, I create a Strawberry Dump Cake and Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream to add to the dump cake. It was delicious! I never made a dump cake before and Wyman’s is my go to when I need fruit. It’s best to bake the cake with frozen fruit.
Strawberry Dump Cake:
1 Box of Yellow Cake Mix
Frozen Strawberries (Slightly Thawed)
1 Stick of Butter or a can of Diet 7Up
Pre-heat your oven to 350
Soften your butter by leaving it out or slightly melting in the microwave.
Add the dry cake mix to your butter
(or ¾ of can of diet 7Up to the bowl)
Mix until crumbly
Add your strawberries to the bottom of a greased baking dish
Evenly pour your cake mix over your strawberries
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes depending how thawed your strawberries are
*Tip you can use ANY of Wyman’s fruit to easily create a quick and easy dessert
Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream
2 whole bananas Bananas
½ cup of Frozen Strawberries (Sliced)
2 tbsp of Milk (Almond)
½ tsp Vanilla
Sliced bananas and set aside to freeze for at least 2 hours
Once both fruits are frozen place in a food processor; blend until smooth
Add milk for desired texture and the vanilla until smooth and well mixed
Add to a freezer safe container and freeze until solid or serve as a soft serve
*This recipe makes a small portion of ice cream; you can always double (or triple) this recipe to make larger batches.
I absolutely LOVED the ice cream it tastes as if I was eating a strawberry-banana smoothie; and those of my favorite. Yum! Thanks to Wyman’s of Maine for making my holiday delicious!
