With multiple heat waves recorded over the last two summers’ in the U.S., there is no shortage of dessert ideas. However, with small adjustments made to traditional summer drinks you can add a twist that will open up the door to new possibilities.
Try throwing an espresso shot in a blender; add ice, milk and flavoring such as vanilla extract to create your own take on a Frappuccino. For vegan options replace milk with coconut, almond or soy milk. Also, for people with dietary restrictions’ add as much or as little of sugar as you desire.
Create your favorite fruit or vegetable smoothie and place the mixture in a Popsicle mold transforming the classic beverage into a frozen treat. Again, options to add sugar, milk, coconut milk, almond milk or soy are always there to suit your own dietary restrictions.
Canned coconut milk can be quite a versatile product; after being placed in the fridge to cool, a layer of coconut cream separates from the liquid and can be scooped from the bottom of the can. Coconut cream can be whipped just like regular whip cream and produces the same thick, airy texture. Place over fresh fruit such as strawberries and sliced cantaloupes’ and you have a refreshing dessert or light afternoon snack. The great part of coconut cream is its lack of dairy ingredients making it a healthy option for people with milk tolerances, allergies and dietary restrictions.
