It’s late August and here in Indiana that really means only one thing. It’s hot. To cool off during these dog days of summer, we prefer treating ourselves to something sweet, delicious, and preferably, cold.
Take a look at our list of favorite frozen treats, make one (or a few) for yourself, and check out how our friends, the 3×3 bloggers, are crafting their own versions of these treats, too! Stay cool out there.
Classic and traditional. No matter your flavor (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry … all three?) you can’t go wrong with this old-school treat. Whip one up in your blender at home or grab one from from your favorite local spot. Bonus points if you find a restaurant that serves “adult” shakes. Now that’s something we can get on board with.
Bomb pops, fruit bars, icees … who doesn’t love cooling down with a refreshing popsicle? We suggest you keep these on hand for all occasions. You never know when that popsicle craving might hit after mowing the lawn, going for a run, or really doing anything that involves going outside in ninety-degree heat.
Cookie? Sandwich? How about both? Grab a frozen pack from the grocery store for you and the kids, or get crafty and make your own with a pint of custard and some gooey, homemade cookies. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it…
¡Arriba! We like our frozen treats the way we like our drinks … spiked! Our favorite trend in margaritas this summer? Grapefruit! This refreshing spin on the Mexican classic is the perfect poolside or backyard barbecue cocktail.
Ciao bella. If you’re noshing on granitas this summer, you’re doing it right. This icy treat is the perfect dessert for your next outdoor dinner party. It’s classy enough that it looks great served in fancy dishes, but it’s simple enough that everyone will like it. Win-win? We think so.
Hey, your mouth is blue … alright, you’re good.
The snow cone is an American summer staple. And not to mention, the number one babysitting technique on the planet.
Go crazy with suicide snow cone flavor combinations, just like you used to do at the soda fountain as a kid (or still do … it’s cool we won’t tell), or stick with the tried-and-true blue raspberry, root beer float, or sour rainbow flavors. Making your own syrups is super easy, too. The secret ingredient? Kool-aid!
