The photo shows a delicate little dab of whipped cream atop this gorgeous Purple Paradise frozen dessert cocktail. Don’t let the photo fool you. After setting the camera aside, I generously slathered the top of this blended concoction with whipped cream, stirred it in ever so sweetly and enjoyed every creamy sip. Whipped cream makes everything better, don’t you think?! With the beautiful purple color, this is just an amazing, happy drink! Make two and share. Everyone deserves a little time in paradise.
Try not to go overboard with the cinnamon spice. Too much cinnamon will leave a bit of drying texture to the drink. Use the spice sparingly for just a hint of spice flavor. You can always add more. The Purple Paradise flavor overall is much like a decadent blueberry pie or blueberry buckle dessert with hint of spiced blueberry. Only this time it’s a frozen treat whipped up blender style for warm weather sipping. Enjoy!
