Vanilla ice cream with berries, a simple pleasure of life that I wouldn't trade for anything. After a tiring walk, I look forward to a big bowl of gelato alla vaniglia con frutti di bosco as opposed to my husband's cappuccino with apple strudel or my son's ice pop & lollipop. Don't even ask me what happens if I trek for hours and find out that the rifugio (refuge) doesn't have it in the menu. 95% they have it. I don't even want to dwell on that 5% of probability.

This is not even a recipe. It is just a 3-minute composition of little heaven. Vanilla ice cream + fresh berries + a light drizzle of white sugar on the berries = pleasure. It's not so easy to find all the berries in the fruit shops. Once I do find them, I get all kinds and prepare this simple and wonderful dessert.
