Speculoos Sundaes with Warm Blueberry Sauce - everything about these is amazing

This ice cream is now a serious obsession.  In case you couldn’t tell in Monday’s post.

Cookie Butter Ice Cream with Warm Blueberry Sauce - my new favorite sundae!

The thing is, despite the fact that it has so much flavor you can most definitely enjoy it thoroughly on its own, I couldn’t leave well enough alone.  So I dressed it up with a sauce made from my favorite summer fruit (seriously, I might turn blue this summer) and some cookie crumbs for extra texture.  The blueberry sauce is so pretty that this sundae will brighten up your summer table.  You can even make a few sundaes ahead of time for entertaining (just wrap and freeze), though, I definitely prefer the blueberry sauce warmed up before serving.  It’s sweet but definitely not too sweet (you wouldn’t want an ultra sweet sauce for the cookie butter ice cream) and since you are adding a fruit so high in antioxidants to your ice cream, an extra-large sundae is perfectly acceptable.
