This week, Lisa from United Cakedom is selecting her favourite ten icy treats! Hey, if it’s not warm and sunny where you are today, stick on some sunglasses and make some of these – we can pretend it’s hot, right?
over to lisa…
This has to be one of the best summers I have seen here in the UK. I moved here from America just over nine years ago and it’s been a while since we’ve had such glorious sun! Which means I am spending less and less time in my kitchen baking.
It’s how I usually spend my time, baking that is. If I’m not baking I can be found running around after my two young daughters, reading, or blogging over on United Cakedom. I recently made some delicious mango ice lollies and I thought there must be other bloggers who are thinking like me! Here’s what I found:
- When I saw this blueberry ripple ice cream over on Ms. Marmite’s site I was inspired by the twist on the popular raspberry ripple and I think it would be the perfect treat for any hot day in a dish or cone!
- If you’re not a fan of blueberries you could try this easy strawberry ice cream over on Tinned Tomatoes. I have found that my girls will always choose strawberry ice cream when given the choice of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.
- Then there is always this no-churn raspberry ice cream on Maison Cupcakes … fruity ice creams are the best. They are technically one of your five a day!
- Children love icy treats and another easy way to keep them cool this summer is with these strawberry & banana yoghurt pops. These are a great for an after school snack on a hot day!
- Or you could make homemade Fabs, Elizabeth’s Kitchen knows how to please children and adults. No one could pass these up!
- If you are looking for a decadent dessert ice cream I would try this salted caramel ice cream, it would be great on it’s own or it would be great on top of a chocolate brownie!
- Baked Alaskas are a great challenge and something to try when attempting to impress. More Than The Occasional Baker has definitely impressed me! I mean, you’re putting ice cream in an oven and it doesn’t melt!
- Another way to impress people is with terrines. They look like they take a lot of effort, but in reality they’re super easy to assemble and super tasty like this blueberry, vanilla, mascarpone ice cream terrine.
- I first heard of yuzu from Eric Lanlard when I made a yuzu tart on my baking day at his café. It’s an interesting citrus fruit that I will have to track down to make this yuzu ice cream. I bet this is not only cooling, but refreshing too!
- And if you’re looking to keep your super hot summer figure, try this fat free frozen yogurt over on Cakeyboi as a way to keep cool. It’s always a bonus when your ice cream is fat free.
Ice cream or ice lollies are my alternative to baking when the summer heat gets too much! I’m always looking for inspiration on my favourite blogs for new flavours and ideas. With weeks left of summer, I can’t wait to see what else pops up on Foodies100 blogs.
Thanks Lisa for finding and sharing these recipes. Don’t know about you, but we are going to make those homemade Fabs right NOW.
