About these frozen desserts
Like popsicles? With the purchase of a set of reusable popsicle molds, you can make pudding pops, yogurt pops, and fruit based popsicles. So refreshing! And e-a-s-y! Keep a good supply in your freezer — they’ll last for up to 3 months — for whenever the urge strikes you.
Or maybe you prefer milkshakes! If you have a blender, you can make a milkshake. Hand blenders work great, too!
Did you know you can make your own ice cream? You don’t even need a fancy ice cream maker! Make your own signature flavor by stirring in bits of candy bar, chocolate chips, extracts, or even bacon bits!
If you’re looking for an alternative to ice cream, try one of these less indulgent (but still delicious!) treats: strawberry sorbet or berry mint granita. These non-dairy frozen deserts are packed with fruit flavor, and are lower in calories, too.
The weather is swelteringly hot and you’re just wilting from the heat, so open your freezer and treat yourself to a homemade frozen treat. Find a nice spot in the shade, queue up your favorite summertime music, and enjoy a little taste of heaven! You’ll be so glad you did!
Ice Cream toppings
Try classic hot fudge sauce, or a variation: mocha hot fudge, peanut butter hot fudge, or cherry hot fudge. If you’re not a chocolate lover, try bourbon caramel sauce, or maybe both for a fancy turtle sundae!
Crazy about dipped cones? Try orange creamsicle magic shell with only 4 easy ingredients (no creepy artificial ingredients). Perfect drizzled over vanilla ice cream.
Top your sundaes with a homemade crunchy oat topping. It’s the perfect nut-free topping for sundaes and costs hardly anything to make, with only three ingredients! If you love nut toppings, try these spiced pecans or vanilla bean candied walnuts on ice cream.
